Forget about your presidential ambition – VON DG tells Tinubu

Mr Osita Okechukwu, the Director General of Voice of Nigeria (VON) and a founding member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has advised Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the party’s National Leader, to drop his bid for the presidency in 2023.

In a statement issued on Sunday, December 19, Okechukwu urged Lagos state’s former governor to back a younger candidate instead.

He claimed that the northerners are hesitant to support the south due of their lack of togetherness, noting that a young aspirant from the south would unite the region.

The VON DG said “If one is consulted by our national leader, His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on whether he should run or not for the exalted office of the President of Nigeria in 2023, my candid advice will be that he should use his abundant Almighty God’s endowment to unite the APC and unite the South and by extension our beloved country, by backing a candidate from the southeast.”
