Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the 2023 elections, Bola Tinubu has charged top campaign operatives to “fight”, “grab” and “run [away] with” political power.

Mr Tinubu was seen in a video giving the charge to some top party operatives in London. He has remained in the United Kingdom after attending a Chatham House engagement earlier in the week.

“Political power is not going to be served in a restaurant. They don’t serve it a la carte. At all cost, fight for it, grab it and run with it,” Mr Tinubu said.

Since his emergence as Lagos governor in 1999, Mr Tinubu has maintained a stranglehold on the politics of Nigeria’s commercial capital.

His admirers cast that as a testimonial of his political dexterity but opposition says the former governor deploys ruthless methods, including visiting violence to scuttle voting in opposition strongholds.
