The race for 2023 Presidency is already getting interesting even before the the year approaches. And this as the various geo-political zones spring up with their interests to throw in a candidate or two.
One of the popular and strng faces however that appears to be gathering momentum is that of the National leader of the All Progressives Congress and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
His candidature continues to generate massive and varied opinion across the country even when the man himself is yet to ctaegorically say anything concrete on his rumoured candidature for the number one position after President Buhari vacates office come 2023.
The apex Igbo socio-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has reacted to reports claiming that National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu will run for the office of the president in 2023.
Ohanaeze’s Deputy Spokesperson, Chuks Ibegbu, in an exclusive interview with DAILY POST, said Tinubu should not run for presidency on the basis of morality.
Just last week, former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode had commended the APC National Leader for “aspiring” to be president in 2023.
Fani-Kayode had tweeted: “I am not in Bola Tinubu’s party but I commend him for having the courage to aspire to be President in 2023.
“How many southern politicians from either APC or PDP have had the guts to do that? If nothing else he has challenged the myth that the north owns Nigeria.”
However, Ibegbu alleged that most people in the South East are not comfortable with the former Lagos State Governor; hence he should not run for president.
According to Ibegbu: “Every Nigerian has the right to contest for any position but we are talking about morality now, Tinubu has the right, I Chuks Ibegbu has the right to be president of this country but we are talking about morality, justice, fairness and equity.
“Tinubu has the right to come out to be president but by right, equity and fairness he should not come out, he has no reason to come out morally.
“In the South West, many are not comfortable with him so he should not come out.”
