Some Nigerians took to their Twitter handles on Tuesday to react to the rumored 2023 presidential ambition of national leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Concise News had earlier reported that President Alpha Conde of Guinea was in Nigeria to lobby for his friend, Tinubu, to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
To some, Tinubu was the architect of building a modern Lagos, a template which successive governors relied on for successful tenures in office.
But others feel he is one of the problems of Nigeria, for making them vote for Buhari in 2015.
Read comments below:
@naiightt: Honestly, Tinubu will be the best president to take us out of this darkness. He’s done wonders with Lagos. Besides, If Tinubu wants to be president lol he doesn’t need anyone to vote for him .. if you know you know.
@thebardogbamola: Emeka Ayaoku visits Obasanjo in his farm after his return from gulag which Abacha sentenced him to in 1998. My Igbo brothers, Yorubas are not your enemies and not all Yorubas are Tinubu or Buhari lovers.
This is my personal choice, if Bola Ahmed Tinubu run for 2023 presidency, believe me, I'd legit vote for him no matter who run against him.
Tinubu may not turn Nigeria to Eldorado if he's president, but he'll sure be better than all Nigeria Presidents since 1999.

Only idiots will trend this useless hashtag #IwantOneNigeria
Where were y’all when Tinubu and MC Oluomo did all their best including intimidation to prevent Igbos from voting in Lagos. Fcuking hypocrites.

A Tinubu Presidency will only allow his cronies to steal Nigeria dry! We may not have any paper evidence but that's what he's doing to Lagos right now
A Tinubu Presidency will be the height of impunity
No, we don't want him
Tell him he's made enough money for himself https://t.co/EOJF8KuA1X

Yesterday I reread Orwell's Animal Farm from cover to cover and once again marveled at the stark, continuous reality just beneath the satire.
Here's my extrapolation;

Some people never enter Lagos before…yet they put mouth in Tinubu and Lagos politics like sey na "we" gada own Lagos.
You don't see a true and true Lagosian bashing Tinubu. Though we may have differences, Tinubu is still a force that must be respected in Lagos.

Even if tinubu want to run for the post of the president in next general election. He worth it, he has made sacrifice for the democracy. For buhari and the whole Nigeria

If Buhari can be President, and even win a second term. I will commit myself fully to see to the actualisation of a Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as President.
PMB had short comings and we were asked to waive it, we will waive BATs owns for the greater good
The economy will be better.

Suddenly Tinubu has started wearing red cap. Soon Isi agu will follow. Then you will hear how his 3rd wife is Igbo. pic.twitter.com/qttkMRQm3z
