I am not sick, presidency requires brain — Tinubu


Chieftain and the national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), and one of the contenders for the 2023 presidencial race Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has dismissed propagandas on his ill-health status.

Tinubu affirmed his well-being and declared that he is fit for the job as it require brain.

He made the clarification during his visit to the palace of the Ataoja of Osogbo in Osun State, on Friday.

“I didn’t apply for a job of bricklayer. The job I’m applying for requires brain. I’m not sick. I only repaired my knee. I’m not applying for a relay race and I’m not a horse. I have the quality to serve and make Nigeria great. I want to serve my country. I have the brain”

“I came here to seek for your prayers. I am here for your support and cooperation. You have known my intention already. You have known what I am aspiring for; all I need is your prayers.

“I have been supporting the people here and there. We have moved all over the country for one candidate or the other especially in 2015 when we campaigned for President Muhammadu Buhari after his emergence, we equally supported him in 2019.

“As you all know, what the Constitution says is just two terms for a president after which another person succeeds him. That is what we are going round the country to let our people know that I am ready to succeed the incumbent President after the expiration of his second term.

“As you all know, what we are doing is to succeed him and I want to vie for President. I want to succeed Buhari and I can’t do it alone without your support. I want your continued support. With your support, it will come to pass.

“I am determined, I am prepared and I am ready for it. God that put our traditional rulers in their various thrones will not forsake us. He will put us there. I want to be President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I want your continued prayers.”
