Mr Tunde Rahman , the spokesperson for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu , has alleged that some chieftains of the party supported Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party in last Saturday ’ s Edo State governorship election because of the politics of 2023 .
Rahman said this in an article titled , ‘Asiwaju Tinubu and Edo Election ,’ published on an online medium , TheCable.
Tinubu is rumoured to be eyeing the Presidency in 2023 but he has neither denied nor confirmed this .
However , many politicians within the APC who are also eyeing the Presidency are said to be doing everything possible to ensure that Tinubu ’ s ambition is truncated .
Contributing to the debate , Rahman stated , “ Indeed , it must be pointed out clearly that beneath all the shenanigans that trailed Edo poll, underneath all of that rabble – rousing, rumour- mongering , campaign of calumny , character assassination , deceit and double -dealing is the matter of 2023 .
“ Rather than first helping their party solidify its stronghold and strengthen it for future elections and re – commit themselves to the party’ s ideals and principles , the APC chieftains were tearing at the party’ s fabric, destroying its foundation and preparing it for eventual disintegration in the name of playing politics of 2023 .
