The Chairman-elect of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos, Mr Cornelius Ojelabi, has commended the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for informing President Muhammadu Buhari of his 2023 presidential ambition.

Ojelabi noted that the notification of interest was a welcome development and was also a thing Tinubu’s political family had been expecting for long.

“Informing the President of his intention is the right thing to do. Having informed him officially now he can then intensify his consultations across the country,” he said.

Ojelabi added that Tinubu had paid his dues and no one was more qualified than him to take over leadership at the expiration of Buhari’s tenure in 2023.

According to him, the teeming followers of Tinubu and members of the ruling party across the country and Diaspora are elated with the new development.
