National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has opened up on his 2023 presidential ambition.
He said; “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.”
“I have made no decision regarding 2023 for the concerns of this hour are momentous enough.”
“I have not busied myself with politicking regarding 2023 this period because 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.”
“What I may or may not do in three years hence seems too remote given present exigencies.”
“Those who seek to cast themselves as political Nostradamus are free to so engage their energies. I trust the discerning public will give the views of such eager seers the scant weight such divinations warrant.”
“2023 will answer its own questions in due time. Politics is but a vehicle to arrive at governance. Good politics promotes good governance.”
“Yet, politics is also an uncertain venture. No one gets all they want all the time. In even a tightly-woven family, differences and competing interests must be balanced and accommodated.”
