In London, the United Kingdom, a large campaign to elect former Lagos State governor Ahmed Bola Tinubu as Nigeria’s president in 2023 has begun.

In a video aired by Arise TV on Monday, colleagues of APC national leader Bola Tinubu plastered large sections around a London train station with advertisements promoting Tinubu’s candidacy for Nigeria’s next presidential election.

Tinubu’s name and photo were plastered on the walls and floor of the Train Station with the campaign slogan “Yes We Can” in an effort to raise awareness for the politician, who has been recovering in London for the past few weeks from an unexplained ailment.

“He (Akeredolu) and I were in London together to see our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but it had absolutely nothing to do with 2023 presidential plans,” Fayemi claimed during the interview.
We didn’t go there for that reason.

“Asiwaju just had surgery, and it is simply normal etiquette or behavior, both in the part of the country where I grew up and in general, that when a friend or elder is facing health issues, it would be impolite on your part not to show solidarity and support.

“That is simply what brought us there; we wanted to be associated with him in his time of need, and as an elder, a mentor, and a major player in our political party, there was nothing wrong with paying him a courtesy call to see how he was doing, which we did and returned.

“Let me be crystal clear: it has nothing to do with 2023.”
