Asiwaju Bola Tinubu says he’s currently more worried about the spread of coronavirus in Nigeria and its economic fallout.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says he has not made any decision to run for president in the 2023 presidential election.
Tinubu disclosed this in a statement on Saturday, June 27, 2020, two days after his party’s National Executive Committee dissolved Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC).
In the opinions of many Nigerians, the dissolution of the party’s NWC dealt a blow to the perceived presidential ambition of the party leader because of his closeness to Oshiomhole, the former chairman of the party.
But the former Governor of Lagos State in the statement dismissed the rumoured presidential ambition, saying at this moment, he’s more worried for Nigeria about the spread of coronavirus and its economic fallout. Below is Tinubu’s full statement.
