I pity those saying my supposed Presidential ambition is dead – Tinubu
All Progressives Congress stalwart, Bola Tinubu, says he pities those saying his purported ambition to be President in 2023 is dead.
Tinubu said this in a statement on Saturday while reacting to the dissolution of the National Working Committee by the party’s National Executive Council.
He said, “To those who have been actively bleating how the President’s actions and the NEC meeting have ended my purported 2023 ambitions, I seek your pity.
“I am but a mere mortal who does not enjoy the length of foresight or political wisdom you profess to have. Already, you have assigned colourful epitaphs to the 2023 death of an alleged political ambition that is not yet even born.”
Tinubu, who did not deny or affirm whether he had a Presidential ambition, said there was no time for such due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.
He said he would rather busy himself with how to ensure the economic recovery of the country.
The former Lagos State governor stated, “During this period, I have not busied myself with politicking regarding 2023. I find that a bit distasteful and somewhat uncaring particularly when so many of our people have been unbalanced by the twin public health and economic crises we face.
“I have devoted these last few months to thinking of policies that may help the nation in the here and now. What I may or may not do 3 years hence seems too remote given present exigencies.”
