Former Ogun State governor and Senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has declared to run for the presidential position on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Amosun declared his intention on Thursday during an event held at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja.
He said, “Today, I am formally announcing my candidacy for the Presidential ticket of our great party, the All Progressives Congress and the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“I do so conscious of the immensity of the tasks that lie ahead in our country and the magnitude of the sacrifices that anybody who wishes to lead our country into the next phase must make.
“This is to honour a historic call and duty to lead the next phase of our collective journey to national glory. It is a duty to reenergise our faith in the future of this country even in the face of the threats to our national sovereignty by insurgents and terrorists; a duty to renew hope in our collective destiny even in the light of some doubts expressed and mobilised in some quarters about our shared fate.
“I’m therefore confident in the future of this country and the great possibilities that lie ahead for us as a free people.”
