As reactions continue to trail the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC’s Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s ambition on Monday, the Lagos chapter of APC said Tinubu’s presidential ambition was a welcome development.
Lagos APC’s reaction was contained in a statement issued by the Chairman-elect, Mr Cornelius Ojelabi, saying it’s move that was well intended.
He move has been long awaited.
“Informing the President of his intention is the right thing to do.
“Having informed him officially, now he can then intensify his consultations across the country,” he said.
Ojelabi noted that Tinubu had paid his dues and no one was more qualified than him to take over leadership at the expiration of Buhari’s tenure in 2023.
According to him, the teeming followers of Tinubu and members of the ruling party across the length and breadth of the country and in the Diaspora were elated with the new development.
The former Lagos State Governor yesterday said he had informed the President of his decision to run for the presidency in 2023.
