Former Minister for Works, Adeseye Ogunlewe has said that Nigeria needs a thinker like Bola Tinubu to succeed President Mohammadu Buhari in 2023.
Ogunlewe, speaking during an interview with Arise Television programme on Tuesday, Ogunlewe said Tinubu is the appropriate person to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the former Senator, a campaign team will be launched in Lagos on Thursday to commence the activities of his participation as a candidate in the 2023 election.
“We need a thinker and someone who has paid his dues in the struggle for democracy, and we’re appealing to Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu to come out and participate,” Ogunlewe said.
“It is not going to be easy, it is not going to be a dash. He has to struggle, participate and convince people that he is available to serve.
“On Thursday, we will launch the Lagos faction of his campaign team, so that everybody would be aware of his intention to contest. Then we move from there to participate in the national convention, where they are going to choose the flagbearer of the party.
“He is sick but he’s getting better on a daily basis. He has more time to recuperate and come back to tell us whether he accepts to run or not, but definitely, he has not said so.
“We are just thinking he’s the appropriate person to run for the presidency of Nigeria.”
