Dr Iyorchia Ayu, a Former Senate President has said that the National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) cannot contest for the 2023 presidency.

Ayu said that his thirst for power from the President will distort the gains he had made so far politically. Advising that Tinubu should align with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in order to be President Buhari’s successor speaking with Nigerian Tribune.

Iyorchia Ayu speaking said that, “Bola Tinubu is my brother, an excellent man, politically clever and hardworking. He has been very successful in his private life.

“But I think as I said in one of my earlier interviews, he has aligned himself with the most backward forces in Nigeria’s political history.

“Rather than liberal and the progressive wing of the north, this right-wing group he is working with will soon turn against him and destroy him

“His (Tinubu’s) ambition which is becoming blind will contribute to that self-destruction. He will lose most of what he has gained as a political leader.

“If he has my opinion, I will advise him to continue to play the role of a political leader, but not aspiring to be a government leader.

“He should promote and support the candidature of Yemi Osinbajo, who is obviously an intelligent and competent person.”
