Former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has picked the All Progressives Congress’ Presidential Nomination and Expression of Interest Forms, NEWSWATCHplus has learnt.
It was gathered that some of Tinubu’s close associates helped him pick up the form as he is still in Saudi Arabia for Hajj.
He was represented by Hon. James Faleke, House of Representatives member from Ikeja Federal Constituency, Babatunde Adejare; member representing Agege Federal Constituency in the green chamber, Babachir Lawal, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
Faleke, Lawal and other loyalists of the APC leader, picked up the presidential forms for him (Tinubu) at the APC National Headquarters on Blantyre Street, Wuse 2, Abuja, at exactly 3pm.
Tinubu had in January announced his desire to succeed the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari in May 2023.
He had told Aso Rock reporters that becoming Nigeria’s President was his “lifelong ambition” and that there was nothing wrong in a kingmaker becoming a king.
