Presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is set to make an appearance on the BBC World Service, likely to continue engagements on his ambition to lead Nigeria and his governance agenda as documented in a manifesto titled ‘Renewed Hope’.
Peter Okwoche of the BBC confirmed the interview on Monday in a tweet where he dispelled the notion of the candidate’s rumoured reluctance to engage the press.
“They say Tinubu doesn’t talk to pres, well guess what? Everyone speaks to me! Interview coming up on @BBCWorld #FocusOnAfrica,” he tweeted.
The interview comes on the back of the candidate’s impressive display at Chatham House, the London think tank, where he offered insights into his plans to manage the country’s economy, tackle insecurity, and facilitate the rise of Nigeria’s bulging youth population through skills acquisition and lasting empowerment.
Tinubu received a strong rating for his performance at the event, with several positive reviews posted by foreign and local agencies. According to some, he demonstrated a “satisfactory grasp of all the issues the country must address to realise its potential, including contemporary issues which reveals his studious nature and strong preparation.”
