The build-up to the 2023 presidential election has been heating up over the last few months, as Nigerian electorates look forward to electing a new face as the country's President. Also in the last few months, many groups and individuals have drummed their support for politicians, whom they deem fit to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.[Image Credit: Google]
In a post via his verified Facebook handle on Thursday, 7th of October, 2021, the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-olu threw his weight behind a fomer Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu, if he decides to contest for the number one office in the country.[Image Credit: Governor BabajideSanwo-olu's Facebook Handle]
Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu made his intention known when he attended the formal launch of the SouthWest Agenda for 2023 in Lagos State. Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu further revealed that there are three attributes Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu exhibits, which are; vision, passion and action, and the SouthWest Agenda 2023 will make efforts to see that Nigerians feel these three attributes of Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu.[Image Credit: Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu's Official Facebook Handle]
For over a year, Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu has been rumoured to be nurturing a 2023 presidential ambition, though he has not declared his intention to contest for the presidency in 2023.[Image Credit: Google]
Recently, top political bigwigs in the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the South-West, Northern part of Nigeria and even President Muhammadu Buhari has paid courtesy visits to Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu in London, United Kingdom. It is believed that these top politicians may have shown support for a Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu presidency in 2023.
Is Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu the only South-West politician fit to contest for the presidency in 2023? I ask this because it looks like Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu is the only South-West politician the light is panning on, even though he has not spoken on the 2023 presidency.[Image Credit: Google]
Earlier this year, the All Progressives Congress (APC) revealed it will adopt a consensus method when picking their presidential candidate, so it could also be that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-West have thrown thrown their weight behind Bola Ahmed Asiwaju Tinubu.
