NATIONAL leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said, yesterday, that the chances of the party retaining the Presidency in 2023 were as bright as midnight star.
He also said no president would intentionally want his citizens exposed to banditry and danger.
Tinubu said:“I don’t want to predict that one (chances of the APC retaining power at the centre, after President Buhari) right now, I don’t want to do that subject now. The chances are as bright as a midnight star. We will continue to work for a better Nigeria and that is what you need.
“We cannot interject politics and assumption into everything, we have a nation to build, we have a baton to pass. You can depend on Buhari that he will not spend one hour beyond his tenure. He will do that; he will comply with the Constitution. So, how it happens? Read the Nigerian Constitution and find out from the INEC website.”
The former governor of Lagos State stated this, while fielding questions from journalists after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Monday night, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Tinubu, who was accompanied by APC’s pioneer interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, debunked the insinuations that he has a frosty relationship with the President.
Asked what the President should do to address the security situation in the country, he called for effective security and communication.
