As the race for the 2023 presidential election is gathering momentum, posters of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have appeared in several parts of Abuja yesterday.
The posters, which were seen in strategic locations including the Garki, Central Area, Maitama, Wuse II, the APC National Secretariat and Shehu Shagari Way all located in the nation’s capital, boldly carried the name and picture of the ex-Lagos State governor.
The posters appeared in different colours and carried various inscriptions, some of which read: “Tinubu Ne” in Hausa ( meaning ‘It’s Tinubu!’)” “Happy Democracy Day” and “Tinubu Advocates Group”.
Although the APC chieftain has not officially declared his 2023 presidential election bid, some observers have pointed out that the Asiwaju is eyeing the nation’s highest political office in two years.
Recall that a group, known as the Disciples of Jagaban, (DOJ), recently threatened to sue the APC national leadership if Tinubu fails to contest the 2023 presidential election.
The DOJ is a merger of 12 political and socio-cultural groups working towards the actualisation of Tinubu’s presidency come 2023.
The National President of the DOJ, AbdulHakeem Adegoke Alawuje, described the ex-governor as the most qualified among the individuals eyeing the country’s presidency.
