A presidential aspirant and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has expressed the belief that he would win the 2023 election.
Tinubu made this call on Saturday, January 16, when he visited the residence of ex-Oyo State Governor, Rashidi Ladoja.
He said with the “strong support” of the masses, he would emerge the winner of the election in 2023.
He said reactions from relevant stakeholders have spurred him to continue in his push for the presidency.
Tinubu, however, admitted that there would be challenges, but he would overcome them.
According to Tinubu: “Life is a challenge and you must be ready to confront challenges and overcome. I have the confidence that I will overcome any form of challenge.
“The reactions of critical stakeholders to my presidential ambition have been very positive, encouraging and overwhelming and these have spurred me on with the strong conviction that we would succeed and emerge victorious after the election.
“We are forging ahead and with the strong support of the masses of Nigerians, we are going to achieve a resounding victory.”
Meanwhile, Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Kalu, has revealed the reason he cannot attack Bola Tinubu; the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress as they vie for the 2023 Presidency; also noting that their friendship is deep-rooted.
Orji Kalu, equally important, said this on Sunday, January 16; while exonerating himself from media reports; that he, in a recent interview, attacked Tinubu when he said he would contest against the APC chieftain; for the party’s 2023 presidential ticket if zoned to the South.
The former governor of Abia State, through his media office, said, “I told Nigerians that I would contest against Tinubu if the ticket is zoned to the South. APC is a democratic party that allows every qualified member to vote and also be voted for.
“It is not owned or managed by an individual. If I said I was going to contest against Tinubu doesn’t mean I attacked him. I cannot attack him for any reason.
