Popular Abuja-based activist and convener, Concerned Nigerians, Comrade Deji Adeyanju has disclosed that Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, stands a better chance to clinch the party’s presidential ticket, ahead of 2023.
Adeyanju explained that the APC chieftain has the backing of most APC governors and Senators.
In a tweet, he noted that Tinubu’s wide support within the party structure was responsible for the delay of APC’s national Congress.
He added that both the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, plans to field a Northern presidential candidate in 2023.
According to Mr Deji: “Both APC and PDP are going to present Northern candidates in 2023. But if primaries takes place in APC today, Tinubu will win because he has more support of their Govs, Senators structures, etc. This is one of the reasons they are delaying APC congress. Politics is deep.”
A Nigeria clergyman, Primate Ayodele has, however, warned Tinubu to stay away from police and focus on his health. Noting that he would not only be a disgrace to his family but also a disaster to Nigeria if he succeeds President Buhari in 2023.
