Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for president, claims he is a marketable individual and won’t permit anybody to utilize him to gain money.

On Monday, December 5, 2022, Tinubu gave a speech at Chatham House in the United Kingdom on the subject of “Nigeria’s 2023 elections: Security & economic development and its foreign policy imperatives.”

When asked why he hasn’t been engaging in one-on-one chats with Nigerians like his rivals Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Tinubu said that the organizers of the events wanted to utilize him as a means of generating income.

He said, “I see myself as a marketable individual, they want to use me to make money and I am saying no.”

This is said to be a response to Tinubu’s refusal to attend Arise TV’s repeated requests for him to do so in order to inform Nigerians of his vision for the nation in advance of the 2023 presidential election.

Recall that Arise TV and the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council recently engaged in conflict over the TV station’s invitation to Tinubu to attend a town hall meeting (APC-PCC).

In a statement, the council expressed astonishment that Tinubu was not consulted before the TV channel named him as a participant.

The council also rebuked Arise Television for utilizing Tinubu’s name without his permission in advertising for the town hall meeting.
