A former Governor of Lagos State, Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said he might contest for presidential office in Nigeria in the future.
Mr Tinubu disclosed this in Akure while speaking on the sidelines of the inauguration of Mr Rotimi Akeredolu as Governor of Ondo state.
The former senator said vying for any office in Nigeria is an opportunity to serve the country.
“You see” he called the attention of his interviewer, “there is nothing wrong with such ambition,” he said.
“It depends on the timing and the environment and what political leadership dictates. I will not brush aside such an aspiration” Tinubu said.
He alluded to President Buhari’s several attempts at the presidency before finally winning in 2015.
”It has been historical even that Buhari tried first, second, third, and forth before he got it. Resilience, determination, and clarity of purpose. Maybe as a senator, maybe as a president, you cannot rule it out. How can I rule such a thing out, the opportunity to service my country but you only do that when there is a vacancy” he said.
