2023 Presidency: Why I believe I’ll win – Tinubu

I have the confidence that I will overcome any form of challenge. I am sure I would face challenges and I have the confidence that I will overcome them.”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has voiced confidence in his party’s ability to win the presidency in 2023.
Tinubu stated he could win with the masses when he visited Senator Rashidi Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo, at his Ibadan residence over the weekend.
He went on to say that he was aware of the hurdles ahead, but that he was confident that he would triumph.

“Life is a challenge and you must be ready to confront challenges and overcome.

I have the confidence that I will overcome any form of challenge. I am sure I would face challenges and I have the confidence that I will overcome them.”

“The reactions of critical stakeholders to my presidential ambition have been very positive, encouraging and overwhelming and these have spurred me on with the strong conviction that we would succeed and emerge victorious after the election.

“Life itself is a challenge and I have the confidence and capacity to wade through challenges and overcome.

We are forging ahead and with the strong support of the masses of Nigeria, we are going to achieve resounding victory.”

Away from that, The government of Ebonyi state has called on residents in the state to disregard the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Recall that the proscribed separatist group had stated there will be a sit-at-home protest in the south-east on Tuesday.

Annoucing the order on Saturday, the IPOB’s spokesperson, Emma Powerful had disclosed that the sit-at-home order is in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the group, who is scheduled to appear in court on January 18, 19 and 20 for the continuation of his trial.

“Following our leader’s upcoming court proceedings on the 18th, 19th and 20th of January 2022 next week, we wish to remind Biafrans that there will be only sit-at-home on 18th of January, and not 19th and 20th of January.

In keeping with our avowed solidarity with our Leader, the entire Biafra land will be on lockdown only on January 18 for obvious reasons,” the statement reads.

But reacting to the order on Sunday, the Ebonyi government asked all markets and parks in the state to open for business, adding that failure to do so will attract “severe punishment”.

“All markets and parks leaderships in Ebonyi are by this announcement directed to ensure that markets are open for businesses on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,” Nwachukwu Eze, commissioner for markets and parks, said in a statement.
