A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Olusegun Osoba , has said ex -governor of Lagos State , Bola Tinubu , has the right to contest for president in 2023 .
“ Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as an individual has the right to put himself forward , we have not zeroed in on an individual.
Zeroing in on any individual will destroy our efforts now but Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has a right to pursue his own agenda ,” he said.
Osoba , who is also a former governor of Ogun State , spoke on a television programme on Tuesday .
He said the South- West must unite and put its home in order to achieve success in the next presidential election.
According to him, there is a gentleman ’s agreement in the APC that the South will produce Nigeria ’s president in 2023.
The APC chieftain, however , noted that though “ there is so much noise from the East ”, nobody has contacted him or other chieftains of the party to show interest in running for president in 2023 .
“ As an elder in the party, nobody from the South- East has contacted or consulted me to lobby, to even say they are interested , ” Osoba stated
