A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Osita Okechukwu, has disclosed that former Lagos governor, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, has a strong chance of emerging as the party’s consensus candidate for the presidency in the 2023 poll.
Okechukwu, who is the director-general of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), made the disclosure in a chat with journalists on Thursday in Abuja, July 22, The Guardian reported.
He expressed support for the leadership of the APC for proposing the presentation of a consensus candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
He said: ...In my slightest imagination one doesn’t think any committee handling such delicate matter will miss out our national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the matrix.
According to Vanguard, the politician, however, noted that Tinubu never had any succession pact with President Buhari.
