President Muhammadu Buhari and the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Monday met behind closed doors at the Presidential villa.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Tinubu described as ‘restlessness’ , the scheming for 2023 Presidential election at this time.
While noting that it was too early to dwell on the Presidential election. He said all those talking of zoning to a particular region at this time do not have the developmental interest of the nation at heart.
“I was in the struggle for democracy,” said the former Lagos State governor.
He added, “I was in opposition to a third term agenda of a former leader of this country, with Muhammadu Buhari, Mr President; I know he will never.”
The APC chieftain, however, urged Nigerians to believe in the President whom he said would never have any thought of seeking re-election as President in the 2023 general elections.
He stressed that President Buhari would not be interested in extending his tenure in office after 2023, even if it was offered to him.
Tinubu said, “He (Buhari) has the courage and the character to refuse such a temptation, even if offered to him. I believe in him and I believe Nigerians should believe in him.”
