National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu has said that he may take a shot at the highest office in the land if there is vacancy at Aso Rock.
Speaking in a video obtained by Sahara Reporters TV during Friday's inauguration of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu as governor of Ondo State, Tinubu said there is no way he will reject an opportunity to serve the country.
Responding to a question on whether he has an ambition, he said: "You see, there is nothing wrong with such ambition.
It depends on the timing and the environment and what political leadership dictates. I will not brush aside such an aspiration.
"Resilience, determination, and clarity of purpose. Maybe as a senator, maybe as a president, you cannot rule it out.
How can I rule such a thing out, the opportunity to service my country? But you only do that when there is a vacancy."
Drawing a corollary from President Muhammadu Buhari's several attempts at the presidency before winning the 2015 elections, he said: "It has been historical even that Buhari tried first, second, third, and fourth before he got it."
On the health condition of the president, the former governor of Lagos State said Buhari has been very honest in disclosing that he needs medical attention.
"An honest man dis- closed to you that he is going on leave, he is going to have a medical check-up, he has disclosed that he needed more time. "He has told you, he has told us honestly that he needed medical attention.
What his doctors will discuss after that is subject to experts who should not be discussed until he is ready to disclose it.
He told us that he cannot return now, what else do you want him to do? "Only God gives life, and only God can take it. The man that I have seen is well, alive. We should promote welfare, praying for the wellbeing of our leaders," he said.
