All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu has broken his silence following decision of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to join the 2023 presidential race.
He also sent a stern warning to Osinbajo.
Recall that Osinbajo joined the race on Monday.
The former Lagos Governor spoke after a meeting with Governors elected on the platform of the party.
Tinubu explained that discussions during the parley centred on his ambition to lead the country from 2023.
“My mission is to seek the collaboration, encouragement and support of my party, the APC, for my ambition and mission to become the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Asked to react to his “son’s” declaration, a reference to Osinbajo, Tinubu replied: “I have no son grown enough to declare”.
In 2015, Tinubu sought to run with President Buhari but was asked to nominate to avoid a Muslim/Muslim ticket.
The APC co-founder then selected Osinbajo, his former Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice.
With his declaration, the Professor of Law and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) has drawn the battle line with Tinubu.
