Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former Lagos State governor, APC National leader and presidential aspirant in the 2023 presidential election is 70 years today.
Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu (born 29 March 1952) is a Nigerian accountant and politician who has been national leader of the All Progressives Congress since the party’s formation in 2013.
He previously served as the Governor of Lagos State from 1999 to 2007 and Senator for Lagos West during the brief Third Republic. In January 2022, he announced his intention to run for the APC nomination for President of Nigeria in the 2023 presidential election.
Tinubu won by a wide margin as a member of the Alliance for Democracy over the Peoples Democratic Party’s Dapo Sarumi and the All People’s Party’s Nosirudeen Kekere-Ekun.
Four years later, he won re-election to a second term over the PDP’s Funsho Williams by a reduced margin.
Tinubu’s two terms were marked by attempts at modernizing the city of Lagos and his feuds with the PDP-controlled federal government. After leaving office in 2007, Tinubu retained his status as one of Nigeria’s most influential politicians as his allies often filled high offices throughout the southwest and he played a key role in the formation of the All Progressives Congress in 2013.
Long controversial, Tinubu’s career has been plagued by accusations of corruption and questions about the veracity of his personal history.
He has declared to run for the office of president of Nigeria in 2023.
