A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ahmed Tinubu, has met with some governors of the ruling party at the Kebbi State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja on Monday.
The meeting was held hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo officially declared his intention to vie for the presidential seat in the 2023 elections.

The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Gboyega Akosile, shared photos of the governors and the APC chieftain’s meeting on his official Twitter handle.
“Breaking: frontline presidential aspirant of @OfficialAPCNg, @officialABAT
this morning held a crucial meeting with APC Governors in Abuja,” he wrote alongside the photos. “17 APC Governors attended the meeting called this morning. ”
‘NO SON GROWN ENOUGH’
Monday’s meeting followed a similar one Osinbajo held with the governors at his Aguda House residence on Sunday evening.
The former Lagos Governor, who also reacted to Osinbajo’s declaration, said he met the governors to collaborate on his 2023 ambition.
“I don’t have any son grown enough to make such declaration,” Tinubu replied when asked about Osinbajo’s move.
“My mission here is to seek collaboration, support, and encouragement of my party, the APC, for my ambition to become the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a replacement for President Muhammadu Buhari after his tenure,” he added.
The Kebbi State Governor and the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), Atiku Bagudu, also refuted claims that Osinbajo’s declaration pits him with his political godson.
According to him, the development shows the quality of persons in the ruling APC.
“The fact that we have people in our party that express desire to lead the party into the highest office in electoral contest shows how much this our party has resonated with Nigerians and our party members,” the governor said.
