2023: Tinubu Should Join Another Political Party If He's Truly Popular

View pictures in App save up to 80% data. I have seen many people talk about the popularity of former Governor of Lagos State, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Many people have described him with a lot of adjectives that place him above all others on the political field.

Tinubu has been described as the one who has built many politicians. He was said to have discovered many talented heads like Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Babatunde Raji Fashola, Akinwunmi Ambode, Femi Gbajabiamila, Rauf Aregbesola, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and a host of others.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

Tinubu has been the strong pillar behind the suspended National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole. 

It is being touted that Tinubu is eyeing the presidential seat come 2023. Many have alleged that his ambition was the reason why he stands firmly behind Oshiomhole.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

There are people who hold the sentiments that every decision taken by Oshiomhole was in favour of Tinubu's 2023 presidential ambition. 

Though Tinubu himself has not come out to say he is truly contesting in 2023, he has also not denied eyeing the presidency, despite all talks about it. He only said the time for political ambitions is not now.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

With the suspension of Oshiomhole and the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari has taken sides with the Victor Giadom faction of the APC leadership, many people feel it is the end for Tinubu and his political ambition.

People like Femi Fani-Kayode have come out to say Buhari has used and dumped Tinubu and has succeeded in retiring him from politics. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

An aide of Buhari, Bashir Ahmad also said Tinubu cannot attend the National Executive Council meeting because he is not a member of APC NEC. But it will be recalled that Tinubu attended that same meeting in 2018.

If truly the APC quagmire is marking an obstacle to Tinubu's ambition, it is better for him to defect to another party to test his political popularity and strength.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

With everything people said he has achieved politically, it should not be difficult for him to gather followers if he eventually leaves the APC for another platform. Even if he joins an unknown party, his name is supposed to speak for him. 

It will be recalled that different political parties came together to form the APC. No group is superior to the and no one is more progressive than the other. We need to get it right.  View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

This is a challenge to Tinubu's political sagacity. He should go out there and put his acceptance to test. Let's see if truly he is what people say he is or if he is being overrated. 

Tinubu, leave APC and let's see your political capacity!
