Bola Tinubu will today obtain his copies of the Nomination and Expression of Interest forms to vie for the Presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress.
The forms which go for N100m will be picked by the associates of the former governor of Lagos State at the APC National Headquarters in Abuja.
Meanwhile, Tinubu is currently in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress yesterday urged Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders in their efforts to resolve Nigeria’s challenges.
Tinubu stated this at a special tawaf organized by the Lagos State House of Assembly in Mecca.
He also commended the Assembly for the successes recorded so far under the Speaker, Mudasiru Obasa, just as he appreciated members of the House, who took part in the Tawaf.
Tinubu, while reacting to the calls for prayers, thanked the lawmakers for the initiative and described it as an “important decision.”
He said: “As Muslim faithful continue their fasting and supplications to Allah in this Holy month of Ramadan, I express my gratitude to the Lagos State House of Assembly for their decision to organise a special Tawaf (circumambulation of Holy Kaabah) and prayer session for me today (Thursday) in Mecca.
“I am most honoured by this gesture purposed to be in furtherance of similar prayers seeking God’s blessings for my aspiration to lead Nigeria from 2023.
“However, while thanking Speaker Mudasiru Obasa and all members of the Lagos State House of Assembly for this important decision, I enjoin the Speaker and his colleagues to go beyond my ambition and pray for Nigeria as well.
“I urge them to intercede on behalf of the nation and beseech Almighty Allah for an end to the challenges in the country.
“I urge them to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration in their efforts to surmount these challenges.
“I also enjoin everyone organising or holding similar prayers either for themselves or for some particular causes to also remember to pray for the country in this sacred month.”
