“Oga go and rest” – Nigerians react as Tinubu informs Buhari of 2023 presidential ambition
APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s disclosure that he has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his 2023 presidential ambition has begun to generate reactions from Nigerians.
The former Lagos governor made the disclosure while speaking with State House correspondents shortly after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Aso Villa in Abuja on Monday.
“I have informed the President of my intention but I’ve not informed Nigerians yet. I am still consulting and I have no problem consulting and I have not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people I will consult. You will soon hear all you want to hear; it is a categorical declaration. You’ve gotten that truth from me that I have informed Mr President of my ambition,” Tinubu said.
He added that he has the confidence, vision, and capacity to build on the foundation laid by Buhari to turn around the fortunes of the country.
However, Tinubu’s disclosure has begun to generate reactions from Nigerians on social media.
Taking to the comment section of the official Facebook page of popular daily, The Punch, Kabiru Sani Yakubu wrote, “Oga go and rest, simple !!! We’re tired of people of your generation.
“Buhari almost completely destroyed the little value that remains for us. Now you want to be our president…
“Common Youth! We have to wake up from our needless slumber before these people chopped (sic) up our tomorrow.
“We need competent person of at least 40 years or slightly above. No religion, tribal or regional differences matters anymore.”
Okugo Ben wrote, “Well, I think Mr. Tinubu has the right to say his opinion and make his ambition known. It’s now left for the masses, which I am one of to make their own opinion and intention known to the man.”
Elizabeth Olushola Maxwell wrote, “This old man no get good adviser. If not, they will tell him d truth. Na him campaign money they need.”
However, Oladeinde Olayiwola Mos’hood backed Tinubu’s presidential ambition on account of his sacrifices for the nation’s democracy.
He wrote, “If we are not going to be biased, Tinubu’s sacrifices for democracy ought to have earned him automatic slot to become our next president.”
