Talking about Nigeria's politics, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu's name is a significant name to reckon with. This is so because of his political pedigree and legacies that cannot be matched. Asiwaju Tinubu is former senator, a two term former governor of Lagos State and the current National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Currently, there are rumours here and there that the legendary politician may be willing to contest for the 2023 Presidency though Tinubu himself is yet to declare his intention to contest any office in 2023 but one could affirm his intention from the recently launched political movement called "South West Agenda (SWAGA)". The political movement which was led by Senator Dayo Adeyeye was launched for the Presidential Ambition of Tinubu on Thursday, 7th October, 2021.

From my own point of view, without even contesting for President, Asiwaju Tinubu has already made a good name for himself in Nigeria politics particularly in the South Western part of the country. He is a god father to many politicians in the country. Many state governors, senators, house of rep members came to power with the influence and support of Tinubu. As a result of this, he has earn himself a lot of accolade, respect and popularity.

Instead of contesting for the 2023 Presidency, one thing Asiwaju Tinubu should do in preparation for the 2023 general election is that he should anoint one his followers for Presidency and give him his maximum support since there are indication that APC's presidential ticket may be zoned to the south. This will help him to maintain his political integrity and relevance.
