“My fellow party members who now feel aggrieved by the NEC meetting i urge you to accept the sacrifice you have been asked to make so that the air can be cleared, the Party can assume it proper role of helping government lead the nation toward enlightened improvement and the part it self can grow and firmly establish itself as the best, most democratic part in the land”.
The Leader of the ruling party apc Alh. Ahmad Bola Tinubu has disclosed his stand about the recent nullification of the National Working Committee and hear say of his 2023 presidential ambition.
Tinubu disclosed this in a statement sent to the press by his spoke man, Tunde Rahim. He said the president and working committee has ended my 2023 ambition, i seek your mercy. i,m but a very mortal who does not appreciate the duration of vision or political Wisdom you profess to have. already, you have assigned colorful
epitaphs to the 2023 death of the alleged political ambition that is not even born.
At this extenuating moment with COVID-19 and its economic fallout hounding us, I cannot see as far into the distance as you. I have made no decision regarding 2023 for the concerns of this hour are momentous enough.” “During this period, I have not busied myself with politicking regarding 2023. I find that a bit distasteful and somewhat uncaring particularly
when so many of our people have been unbalanced by the twin public health and economic crises we face. I have devoted these last few months to thinking of policies that may help the nation in the here and now. What I may or may not do 3 years hence seems too remote given present exigencies.” “Those who seek to cast themselves as political Nostradamus’ are free to so engage their energies. I trust the discerning public will give the views of such eager seers the scant weight such divination warrant.
Personally, I find greater merit trying to help in the present by offering policy ideas, both privately and publicly, where I think they might help. I will continue in this same mode for the mediate future. 2023 will answer its own
questions in due time.”
“I have toiled for this party as much as any other person and perhaps more than most. Despite this investment or perhaps due to it, I have no problem with making personal sacrifices and none of us should have such a problem) as long
as the party remains true to its progressive, democratic creed. Politics is but a vehicle to arrive at governance. Good politics promotes good governance. Yet, politics is also an uncertain venture. No one gets all they want all
the time. In even a tightly-woven family, differences and competing interests must be balanced and accommodated.”
So this is the statement of JAGABAN the political leader of Yoruba.
