Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says no amount of intimidation can stop his aspiration to become the President of Nigeria.

Tinubu who was a former governor of Lagos State said this at the palace of the Alaafin of Oyo during his consultation with the Alaafin, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, and the Olubadan-elect, Chief Lekan Balogun.

Tinubu, who had already declared his presidential ambition in January in FCT Abuja said he is ready to get dirty to fulfill his lifelong ambition.

Tinubu said his visit to Oyo and Ibadan was borne out of his respect for the royal stool, and to seek the blessings and cooperation of the traditional leaders for his 2023 aspiration.

“No amount of intimidation can stop me. I am ready to get dirty. I am out to become President of Nigeria. We are at the crossroads.” Tinubu said.

Tinubu said he could not seek to become Nigeria’s president without the support of the traditional leaders.

He also said that the Yoruba ethnic group needed to occupy more political positions at the federal level.

“I cannot embark on a project of such magnitude without seeking for prayers and cooperation of the traditional rulers.

“I am here to inform our fathers of my decision to run for the position of the President of this country in 2023. What I need from our highly revered traditional rulers are their prayers and cooperation”.

“Today, by the special grace of God, in Yorubaland unlike before, we have the Vice-President, the Minister of Works, Interior and Sports but we still need more.”

In response to Tinubu’s words, Oba Adeyemi prayed that all the ancestors of Yorubaland would work in Tinubu’s favour and answer his prayers and asked the 10 Oke-Ogun traditional rulers who were at the meeting whether they were in support of his decision.

‘We are fully in support,’ they responded.
