Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said it is too early to discuss zoning of the 2023 presidency.
Tinubu, speaking after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, said well wishers of Nigeria would rather get behind the country and work for it to attain greater heights.
“We cannot use 365 days in a year and 360 to work on politics, it’s not possible. Anybody talking about zoning now is just completely restless and not focused on the agenda of nation building and development of our country,” he said.
“That time is not now. We have just finished one election and Mr President is busy sorting out the Budget, working for the people of this country. Of course, restlessness of politics is going to be there, but any lover of this country will not talk about the succession plan yet. That’s the truth. Concentrate on working for the country, help the President to help the country. There’s nothing more than that.”

Rumours have suggested Tinubu has himself expressed interest in contesting for the presidency in 2023. His posters surfaced in Abuja some months ago with a campaign office allegedly opened for him in Osogbo.
