Tinubu made his debut in politics as an activist in the pro-democracy agitations of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) in the early 1990s.
The 70-year-old was instrumental to the formation of the APC in 2013, and the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as president in 2015.
His main challengers in the 2023 polls have been identified as Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
