On the platform of APC, former Lagos Stage Governor and National Leader of APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been tipped to emerge as the standard bearer of the party in 2023. 

There were earlier reports that Tinubu may find it difficult to grab the presidential ticket of APC because of other influential politicians in the All Progressives Congress who are also tipped to emerge as the presidential candidate of the ruling party.

However, available indicators have shown the Tinubu might grab the APC presidential ticket to contest for the 2023 presidential election. 

According to a report by Vanguard Newspaper, 16 Governors on the platform of APC have adopted the presidential ambition of Tinubu as the party pushes for consensus candidate.

The recent revelation is an indication that Tinubu might emerge as the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Comgress in 2023.

Recall that APC has 22 Governors, the 16 APC Governors that adopted the presidential ambition of Tinubu are majority and this might help Tinubu to fly the flag of APC in 2023 presidential election. 

This is coming when the ruling All Progressives Congress is pushing for consensus presidential candidate to fly the flag of the party in 2023 presidential race.

Remember that the House of Representative members from northern Nigeria had earlier adopted Tinubu's presidential ambition when they visited him while he was in London. 

If APC finally settles for consensus presidential candidate, Tinubu might eventually emerge as the presidential candidate of APC because of the support he is enjoying currently.
