The speculations on the 2023 presidential ambition of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was laid to rest during the week after some members of the party visited him in London.
In a video that surfaced on social media on Saturday, the ex-Lagos State governor was captured seeing off some guests who came to visit him at his London home when one excited guest let out the words “Mr. President.”
In the video, Tinubu was heard, saying “thank you very much and I wish you all a safe journey.”
The guest, who was about to enter a car parked on the premises, simply replied “thank you, sir. Mr. President see you soon. Your Excellency.”

Until now, the APC national leader has maintained a sealed lip on his 2023 ambition despite moves by individuals and groups to sell his candidacy to Nigerians.
Since he relocated to London a few months ago, several politicians including President Muhammadu Buhari, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obaba, among others had visited Tinubu for various reasons ranging from personal to political reasons.
There were insinuations that the visit of these public officials and other APC stalwarts to the ex-governor may not be unconnected with the 2023 presidential race.
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said he is healthy and only undergoing physiotherapy in London, UK.
Tinubu said this as he welcomed members of the House of Representatives northern caucus on Friday.
The former governor of Lagos State, who has been in the UK for the last three months since undergoing knee surgery, however, admitted he was undergoing “gruesome” physiotherapy.
He said, “Because of God and people like you, I am well. It is just the physio (physiotherapy) that is gruesome.”
His prolonged stay abroad has drawn criticism from a section of Nigerians who believe he ought to have stayed in the country to receive treatment.
