Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) 2023 presidential candidate, has declared that if he is not on the ballot, he will not support any of his rivals.
If Tinubu were not running for office, he clearly stated that he would neither support Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) or Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
Just a few hours after his presentation at Chatham House in London, the former governor of Lagos State made this claim in an interview with BBC News.
When asked if he would vote any of Atiku or Obi if he weren’t running, Tinubu said, “None, because they are not as competent as any other person out there. They have no track record, none of them is qualified except me.”
The APC candidate added that individuals who criticized his wealth source were motivated by envy.
He claimed that his real estate holdings were the source of his fortune.
“I am not denying my wealth. I was the most investigated, the most accused governor in the opposition for eight years and since I left the office, I have not taken any government appointment, no government contract,” he said.
He further denied sharing any of Lagos resources with the state government, as being claimed by some of his critics.
