If you have been following the build up to the 2023 Presidential elections,by now you would’ve lost track of the number of candidates that have declared their intentions to become President.
In the All Progressives Congress alone, more than 20 people have purchased the party’s nomination and expression of interest form. From sitting Governors, to former Governors, to Pastors, Ministers and Senators, all vying for the party’s Presidential ticket,
One of those Presidential aspirants is the former Lagos state Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. When asked about the number of candidates competing, Tinubu simply said, “Anybody can run but not everybody can become President. You have to have the track records, experience, vision, training and the developmental programme – a vision of changing a nation from poverty to prosperity. I’ve it all; I’m different from them. They’re candidates, they’re aspirants but I’m an aspirant.”
He added that he had the necessary experience needed to turn around the “sorry” situation of the country.
Speaking on the ongoing ASUU strike, he also added that it was unacceptable for strikes to continue depriving Nigerian students of their right to education.
“Four years of university should be four years. Some of our children are spending six to 10 years in school. The strike is not acceptable. We will spend resources and investment necessary to move education forward in this country.”
