The All Progressives Congress national leader, Bola Tinubu is willing to serve Nigeria without earning salaries if elected president in 2023.
This was made known by the Tinubu Support Group, a group working towards the actualization of Tinubu’s presidential dream.
In a telephone chat with The PUNCH on Monday, February 7, 2022, the Head of Media and Publicity of the group, Tosin Adeyanju, claimed that the interest of Tinubu to become president is not motivated by the desire to make money.

Adeyanju stated that “This man (Tinubu) has lived for others. God has blessed him. Earning salaries is not important to him but making lives better for people. His priority is service to the Nigerian people and the country.”
He also said that the two-term former governor of Lagos State has both the physical and mental capacities to occupy the office of the president in 2023, adding that Tinubu “works like a machine”.
“Asiwaju has the capacity to work 24 hours a day, he works like a machine. The man has energy,”
On the issue of age, Adeyanju argued that age should not be a factor when it comes to electing a president noting that other countries have elected leaders who’re over 60 years.

“I don’t think leadership has anything to do with age. Most of the leaders across the world like the United States are above 60 and they are doing well. We can see what (79-year-old US President Joe) Biden is doing, creating jobs for the American people. So, for anybody to use age as a yardstick for leadership, I don’t think it is right.”
However, he noted that the main focus of the group now is to make sure Tinubu emerge victorious at the APC primary.
“Our focus now is the primary but I can tell he is not interested in making money but service to the people and to give dividends of democracy to everyone in the country,” he concluded.
