The race to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, who is yet to begin his second term, has started decisively.
The Top leader of Last Downpour Gathering, Minister Tunde Bakare Saturday said he would challenge for the administration after the lapse of Buhari’s second term in 2023.
Bakare made his advantage known at a session with columnists in Lagos in the wake of making his choice at the Opebi Punctuation School surveying unit, taking note of that he had decided to join the race.
He stated, “I am going to toss my cap into the conflict. I am simply sitting tight for President Buhari to complete his residency (in 2023). We can’t proceed with along these lines since we have something to offer this nation, and we will by the finesse of God.”
Bakare, who said he was burning of making Nigeria one of the best nations, said he anticipated a future where each Nigerian vote would check.
The minister who was Buhari’s bad habit presidential hopeful in the 2011 presidential races, said he would keep on appealing to God for the day when each Nigerian would turn out and make the most of their votes.
He asked Nigerians not to enable themselves to be hoodwinked by ‘stomach framework’ when the required foundation in their networks had rotted.
In a meeting distributed recently at Calgary, Canada, Bakare anticipated he would succeed Buhari as Nigeria’s sixteenth president or head of state.
Bakare said President Buhari is the fifteenth president or Head of Condition of the nation and asserted that he (Bakare) would be the following.
Bakare clarified then that he was as of now constructing a political family from over the world, which would be conveyed for future political goals.
“To the extent governmental issues is concerned, it isn’t over genuinely; you would discover that I changed gear in the year 2018, I did what I have never done.
“This would be the fourth or the fifth visit to the Nigerians in diaspora, telling them that God sent them to various nations to realize, that their time is close by.
“The time is nearby when huge numbers of them would need to return and contribute their important portion; they can address their legislatures for the benefit of our kin.”
Bakare’s statement for the 2023 presidential challenge would get him crash with the National Head of All Progressives Congress (APC), Representative Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Tinubu, previous legislative leader of Lagos State, has not shrouded enthusiasm for the 2023 presidential challenge. Tinubu’s presidential yearning, it was claimed, the underlying driver of the break in the APC sections in Ogun, Oyo, Imo, Ondo and Osun, among others.
Adjacent to Tinubu, the VP, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and the Clergyman for Works, Power and Lodging, Mr. Babatunde Fashola have been among the presidential applicants that will originate from the South-west.
