A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, says the Presidential ambition of some top politicians in the APC is destroying the party like the coronavirus pandemic.
The former Lagos governor who is believed to be nursing presidential ambitions of his own revealed this in a statement on Sunday.
He said that it was unfortunate that these individuals had in their desperation for power orchestrated the suspension of the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole.
He said, “While coronavirus has been presently contained in Nigeria, we must be alert to another sickness that seems rampant within a certain segment of society. That sickness is old Ambition-virus 2023.
This illness afflicts many in the political class along with their allies in the media. “Those touched by this malady find that their ability to tell time and discern the difference between the present and the future has been strongly impaired.
The carriers of this sickness are confused as to the very season our nation now finds itself. “They conflate things, which no sensible person would conflate.
The primary symptom of their malady is the driving tendency to believe the events of 2023 will be decided before we even exit the year 2020.” He went on to add that President Buhari was the biggest casualty of the tussle as he was constantly being distracted by the power tussle going on in the party.
