Former Lagos governor of Lagos state, and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu, on Wednesday had a meeting with the House of Representatives caucus of the APC, described himself as the most competent candidate fit to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said: “There is no other one in the race hiding or open; I am the only one in the race and most competent and most qualified to be your president come year 2023.
“I am the only one who has been through the tutelage. I am the only one among them who has been consistent in one party. They are not stable. Some of them are rolling stones. I have been through the National Assembly,” he stated.
Tinubu added that, “I am very proud of myself as a democrat because the essence of democracy is the assemblage of wise and prudent people.”
The national leader of the party who lauded members of the National Assembly for their commitment, said that the legislators represented the crux of the people while commending them for doing well by advancing democracy.
He said he was at the assembly to seek the support of the lawmakers.
”This is my lifelong ambition, which I discussed with President Muhammadu Buhari. I told the President that I want to step in his shoes and not step on his toes,” Tinubu stated.
Tinubu further said the president responded, thus; “come out, let’s see you and how you can promote your democratic credential.’’
According to him, “I am not here to be defensive; I am here with humility that I am one of the best products that you can sell as a presidential candidate.”
Speaking on the speculation regarding his health status, Tinubu said: “They don’t have anything to say; they say I am not well, they are not my doctor. I am not applying to do a mixing for concrete and sand and building 34 skyscrapers. I am only applying to do a job with my can-do. I am only here to do a great job, break the shackle of poverty and remove the roadblock in our revenue.”
