The presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Lagos state, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been declared winner of the just concluded 2022 APC convention, so we now officially have a three-way presidential race in 2023

Tinubu garnered 1271, votes to defeat his closest rival, former governor of Rivers state and immediate past minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi who polled 316 votes.

While delivering his speech at the convention, Jagaban opined: “Today we, as members of the All Progressives Congress, gather both in celebration and in stern test of our democratic fitness.  We have all waited and worked for this day to come. Now it is upon us, we must all rise to the occasion.

“We now stand before all Nigerians. We have always said this party may well be the last best hope for Nigeria to attain its finest destiny. Thus, we shall use this convention to show the world that the APC celebratesdemocracy by faithfully practising it"

“As President Buhari has said, our party’s objective must be to triumph in next year’s election at all levels. The candidate you select must deliver victory in the national elections and have the personal gravity and national recognition to pull us to victory in state and local elections as well. He must instill a sense of victory and confidence.

“The other candidates are all good men. But I sincerely believe I am the person this moment calls for.

“I have the experience. I led the transformation of Lagos from a dangerous, unwelcoming place in 1999 to a clean, safe, and vibrant place and the 5th largest economy in all of Africa. I am a serious man with a serious purpose and I will use all that I know and all of my abilities to the benefit of the people.

“I am a unifying leader. I have constructed a formidable political structure, one that has delivered electoral victory after electoral victory. I do not now put myself forward because I think this nomination is my due. I step forward because I believe I can lead our party towards its brightest future.

“I have the expertise. My record of corporate leadership, my financial expertise and my experience as an executive governor make me unique among the aspirants; giving me the requisite skills to accelerate progressive reforms that will change the face of the national economy"


Tinubu to square up with Atiku, Obi

On May 29, 2022,Tinubu congratulated Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, winner of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries.

While congratulating, former Lagos state Governor said: “I welcome the victory of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded primary.

“I look forward to squaring up with him as a worthy opponent in the coming election. I have known the former Vice President as a formidable politician and a patriot who believes in the unity and progress of our dear country.

“As we move further into the election season, I charge the PDP presidential candidate and all political actors across Party lines that we should make this election season one that is devoid of bitterness, rancour and strife.

“We should make our campaigns peaceful and issue based. Election season should be a festival of ideas that will uplift our country and improve the living condition of all our people.

 “Unfortunately for the PDP, its candidate will be burdened to explain why Nigerians should give it another opportunity, after squandering 16 years at the central government, without much to show”.

“Nigerians are yet to forget the national ruin and mismanagement of our country for 16 years by successive PDP administration and this bad memory will dog the campaign of the PDP Candidate.

“Nevertheless, I once again congratulate our former Vice President for his victory in his party’s primary.”

Atiku Abubakar also congratulated Tinubu on his official social media page. He however earliar also blasted the APC government for it's failed regime over the past 7 years. The Labour Party candidate who is widely seen as the "Third Force" and an alternative to PDP/APC also shared this on his official social media page.
