The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has sparked reactions online over his recent comment in London, the United Kingdom.
We earlier reported that the former Governor of Lagos State was seen in a viral video educating his campaign team on how to acquire power at all costs.
The APC flagbearer, who had appeared at the Chatham House in London, on Monday, spoke on issues concerning the 2023 election, economy, security, and foreign policy.
After the event, Tinubu and his team also had the opportunity to unwind from their stress at a private dinner where he educated them on political power.
According to the APC flagbearer, political power is not served in a restaurant or ala carte and a person must be determined to get it at all costs.
He noted that if taking over political power will involve fighting for it, an individual should snatch it, grab it and run with it.
However, some Nigerians have taken to social media to express their opinions on the statement made by Tinubu ahead of the 2023 elections.
