￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼... I have no business with the media
Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said that he had no business granting media interviews as part of his campaigns for the 2023 presidency.
He particular said he had no business granting interviews to broadcast journalists, especially the television.
His words, “I don’t have business with the media as regards to live television interview, I am contesting for Nigerian President, not Media President
“Asking me while I have not granted any Live television interview since my emergence as our Party flag bearer, to me is never an issue of discourse especially now that our nation is yearning for a good leader that will take over from Mr President and continue his good legacy.
“Nigeria is in need of a pragmatic leader with pragmatic knowledge and understanding of their needs and that person is me.
“Is Live Television interview a guarantee to win become the Nigerian President. Is never a guarantee and will never be..."
Tinubu owns both the Nation Newspaper and TVC Television but had been portrayed in videos and televisions as frail and weak and always sleeping at public events.
However, according to Senator Tinubu, "I am not going to Aso Villa to represent the Nigerian Broadcasting Cooperation, neither am i going there to represent the Nigerian Journalists, rather I Am going there to represent the people of Nigeria in the international community as their President.
"I am not against those going to them for interviews. They are free to go but as for me nobody will tell me what to do or what not to do. They don’t own me.
“All i know is that i am fully prepared ahead of the 2023 election. I have the Structure, the mechanism, the experience and expertise to the election.
"Those going to media are those without political structure and cannot win more than two polling units in their states, that is why they are busy running after the media to help publicize them and make them famous. That’s all.
“Insha Allah, I am the next President of Nigeria, no two ways about it. It’s already clear that Nigerians all over the country are strongly behind me right from the East, West North and South.
"I have no rival and I don’t see any rival at all in the forthcoming elections. All I see is noise makers, people without political structures and some baby politicians running up and down simply because the constitution gave them that little privilege to try their luck via contesting for an election”
