Leading presidential aspirant in the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, has declared that he is ready to get dirty in the battle to emerge Nigeria’s next President.
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu made the declaration during his consultation meeting with the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and the Olubadan-designate, Oba Lekan Balogun on Sunday.
Political watchers have been making inferences, but Tinubu vowed that no other contender would intimidate him out of the race.
He stated that his consultation with the Traditional Rulers is to seek royal blessings, stressing that he is out to be President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor come 2023.
“No amount of intimidation can stop me. I am ready to get dirty. I am out to become President of Nigeria. We are at a crossroads.
“I cannot embark on a project of such magnitude without seeking prayers and cooperation of the traditional rulers.
“I am here to inform our fathers of my decision to run for the position of the President of this country in 2023. What I need from our highly revered traditional rulers are their prayers and cooperation,” Tinubu said.
