Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the South West, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who expressed his commitment to the re-election ambition of the APC candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari in next year’s general elections, has denied claims of working with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2019 elections.
This came after a member of the PDP Board of Trustees, Abba Gana and former FCT Minister, disclosed that Tinubu would work for Atiku because of his long-standing relationship with the former Vice President.
However debunking the claims through his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman, Bola Tinubu said he remains firmly behind that patriot, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his mission to rebuild the country from the ruins of the PDP years. The statement reads;
“His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu indicated long ago where he stood on the matter of the 2019 election.
“He has continued to say he remains firmly behind that patriot, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his mission to rebuild the country from the ruins of the PDP years.
“Only two days ago, he restated this position while speaking with correspondents at the State House in Abuja.
“He said the PDP could hold their meetings anywhere they liked and that Nigerians know who means well for them and is trustworthy.
“Where the former FCT Minister, Abba Gana got his conviction that Asiwaju Tinubu would do otherwise is left only to himself.
“Yes, His Excellency Asiwaju has had a relationship with former Vice President, His Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, just like he has had with many of other leaders in his political journey.
“But this is about Nigeria, the well-being of the country and of Nigerians. On this score, he has made his pick.”
