Former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has explained why he stands the chance of winning the 2023 presidential elections.
Mr. Tinubu who has also toured some northern states, is one of the few presidential aspirants who have publicly declared their interests.
The former Lagos Governor expressed this confidence while on a visit to Senator Rashidi Ladoja, a former Governor of Oyo, at his Ibadan residence during the weekend.
He said: “Life is a challenge and you must be ready to confront challenges and overcome. I have the confidence that I will overcome any form of challenge. I am sure I would face challenges and I have the confidence that I will overcome them.
“The reactions of critical stakeholders to my presidential ambition have been very positive, encouraging and overwhelming and these have spurred me on with the strong conviction that we would succeed and emerge victorious after the election.
“Life itself is a challenge and I have the confidence and capacity to wade through challenges and overcome. We are forging ahead and with the strong support of the masses of Nigeria, we are going to achieve resounding victory.”

Meanwhile, the APC National Leader had also visited Zamfara, where he donated N50 million to victims of banditry.
Tinubu also visited Katsina where he condoled with the government and people of the State over the death of Dr Rabe Nasir, Masari’s commissioner, who was killed last year.
While in Katsina, Tinubu said: “let us be vigilant, let us help our country, let us preach peace and offer advice to those who are determined to bring terrorism, kidnappings and evil doings to our midst to stop. We urge the government of Muhammadu Buhari to use all means necessary to eliminate these people.
“We have a saying in my native language of Yoruba that says it is not easy to get to the seed of a palm kernel, but we are going to support the president to get to the cracker to get seed of evil out of the entire country of Nigeria,” he added.
