Tinubu 2023: Fashola Opens Up I Can't Speak For Anybody...

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has stated in an interview that he cannot speak for anybody on the 2023 presidency, saying nobody has come out to say “I want to be Nigeria’s President.”
When asked whether Tinubu is interested in becoming Nigeria’s president, Fashola said, “It is a very tough responsibility, a very tough job; I don’t envy those who have held that office and I don’t envy those who aspire to take it as well.”
On whether he’ll support Tinubu if he declares his interest in the 2023 presidential race, he said. “I saw him (Tinubu) last week, he didn’t tell me he is running for office and to the best of my knowledge, the last statement he made on it is that people will know in January.”
Fashola also said he has not asked Tinubu whether he is interested in the 2023 Presidency or not.
The two-term ex-governor of Lagos state further said he (Tinubu) “has issued a statement that, ‘I will speak in January, so let us wait till January.”
There have been claims that Tinubu might contest for president in 2023, but the former governor of Lagos state has yet to declare his intention to run for the highest political office in the country.
Meanwhile, a political movement, Southwest Agenda (SWAGA) was recently launched in Lagos to mobilise support for Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The political movement was inaugurated by Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and other party chieftains.
