A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has called out those discussing 2023 elections, noting it is too early to start talking about such.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, stated this while speaking with State House correspondents in Abuja, shortly after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.
According to him, the ongoing talks about 2023 election and Buhari’s succession plan were being championed by those who do not want the best for Nigeria.
The APC chieftain however, lauded Buhari for consistently dismissing claims he would seek re-election at the next election.
Tinubu said: “We cannot use 365 days in a year and 360 to work on politics, it’s not possible. Anybody talking about zoning now is just completely restless and not focused on the agenda of nation building and development of our country.
“That time is not now. We have just finished one election and Mr President is busy sorting out the Budget, working for the people of this country. Of course, restlessness of politics is going to be there, but any lover of this country will not talk about the succession plan yet. That’s the truth. Concentrate on working for the country, help the President to help the country. There’s nothing more than that.”
