EXCLUSIVE: Why Tinubu Should Not Be Nigeria’s President, Obasanjo Loyalists Say
Some loyalists and aides of former President Olusegun Obasanjo have explained why neither they nor their principal would support the 2023 presidential ambition of a former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.
The aides who spoke with SaharaReporters stated that Tinubu, despite the network of supporters and proxies drumming support for him for the 2023 presidency, he is not the ideal candidate to lead the country at the moment.
Although the APC leader has not officially declared his ambition to run for presidency, many political godsons and opportunists are already in the forefront of negotiations, meeting with stakeholders first in the South-West region.
A former Political Adviser to former President Obasanjo, Mr Akin Osuntokun, said he had told Tinubu straightaway that he would not support his presidential ambition.
