Every Nigeria is already aware that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been nursing the ambition of contesting the Nigerian presidency in the 2023 general election.
Political watchers are also of the view that he is banking on Adams Oshimhole, the erstwhile or suspended chairman of the party to ride on to clinching the party’s ticket. But the eventual fall of Oshiomhole from the pinnacle of grace may have been the end of Tinubu’s presidential ambition race.
This presupposition may, however, not be correct as the pendulum can swing again to his favour and he may garner the victory from whoever is the chairman of the party at the national level.
But Femi Fani-Kayode, former aviation minister and a hard critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, does not see any light in Tinubu making it to the presidential ticket without Adams Oshiomhole in the saddle of the party as national chairman.
In a tweet on Wednesday night, he said: “First Oshiomhole was kicked out by the Court of Appeal. Then his preferred replacement, Abiola Ajimobi, falls into a coma. Then his arch rival, Victor Giadom, is recognised by Buhari as National Chairman. Conclusion: it is over for Tinubu. He has been thrown under the bus and retired from politics!”
