Ex-Lagos State governor, Senator Bola Tinubu said his ambition to succeed the incumbent president, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (retired) in 2023, was seeking a job that requires brain and focus and not one that requires strength.
Tinubu spoke at the palace of Ataoja of Osogbo, Oba Jimoh Oyetunji, when he visited the monarch, as he continues to visit royal fathers in Osun state to seek their blessings for his presidential ambition.
Speaking on insinuations that he was unhealthy thus ineligible to contest for the post of president, Tinubu said the work of president he has applied for was not bricklaying, race running, or grave digging, but the one that requires the use of brain and intelligence.
Tinubu added that he aimed to serve Nigeria to the best of his ability, adding that he possessed the quality that the country was looking for to make it a very great, prosperous, united country.
He noted that even with the availability of human and material resources, Nigeria must build a character of resilience and determination, while Nigerians must see themselves as one entity.
