Latest News: On Health Ground, APC Leaders Reject Tinubu's Presidential Candidate

Bola Ahemed Tinubu

Former Governor of Lagos State Bola Ahmed Tinubu's Presidential ambition may have surfered a major set back with the rejection of his candidacy by some party leaders over health reasons. 

This unfavourable news to Tinubu's group is coming after his supporters Tinubu Support Group (TSG) at the weekend persuaded the former governor to declare interest in the exhausted position of Mr. President. 

One of the group leaders,Hon. James Faleke described Asiwaju as the maker of modern Lagos, calling on him not to wait any longer in declaring his intention to become Nigeria President come 2023. 

Falekee said, “on behalf of the millions of supporters of Tinubu Support Group, we are calling on our National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to formally announce his presidential aspiration.” 

He added that this is a man who left office several years back yet,remains popular till today because he is focused, consistent and persistent. He has been the central figure in Nigerian politics. 

Accordingg to him, the rulling party was lucky to have a person of Tinubu’s towering political status. 

But incontrast to TSG belief,some party chieftains said that the APC has better options than the former governor who recently returned from London where he underwent a knee surgery. 

An APC Chieftain in Lafia, Nasarawa State, Alhaji Isah Danladi told Daily Independent that the former Lagos State governor “represents a recycling process that has left the country in ruins.” 

He noted that Tinubu “is not better than Buhari.In all honesty,his type should be concerned with leaving a good legacy as a statesman who contributed alot to stabilize the nation's democracy. 

Through wide consultations he built a strong and virile party that was able to ousted a running party from power. That should be his legacy not this infantile craze to grasp power which I think is self serving.” 

On his part, outspoken APC leader and social commentator, Dr Garus Gololo said “these people are jokers. You mean to say that a group of persons will gather themselves and in clear conscience seek to encourage an obviously weak and tired fellow to run for the presidency. 

"Habaa! Are we that unserious in this country. This is a man that just returned from the sick bed. And he is still nursing whatever ailment befell him.”
