The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has solidly expressed his commitment to the re-election ambition of President Muhammadu Buhari, in next year’s general elections.
Tinubu stated that he remains firmly behind Buhari, who is seeking a second term on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in his mission to rebuild the country from the ruins of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, years.
Tinubu through his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman, was reacting to a statement credited to the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abba Gana.
Gana had declared that Tinubu will work for the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, in the 2019 polls.
Part of the statement by Rahman read: “His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu indicated long ago, where he stood on the matter of the 2019 elections. 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.”
Recall, that in an interview with Saturday Sun, Abba Gana, who is a member of the PDP Board of Trustees and former FCT Minister, had said that Tinubu would work for Atiku, because of political exigency, and his long standing relationship with him.
He said: “You know that Atiku is very friendly with the former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. They formed the APC Government together. I am sure that Tinubu may realise that he faces less danger with the Atiku President. They have common businesses, and I am sure they would work together. Tinubu has more things in common with Atiku, than Buhari.”
