One of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Presidential Candidates, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a former Lagos State Governor and also a national leader of the Party has said that, without him, the President, Muhammadu Buhari, would not have become the president in 2015. He spoke at the Presidential Lodge in Abeokuta, the state capital, while addressing the APC delegates ahead of the party’s primary, stressing that he feels disturb of how the party is going about the Presidential Primary coming up June 6-7. “You have not heard this from me before. This is the first place I am saying this,” Tinubu, who spoke in Yoruba dialect to the delegates said that without him, Buhari’s emergence would have been impossible.
“ If not for me that led the war front, Buhari won’t have emerged. He contested first, second and third times, but lost. He even said on television that he won’t contest again. But I went to his home in Katsina. I told him you would contest and win, but you won’t joke about the matters of the Yorubas.“Since he has emerged, I have not been appointed minister. I didn’t get nor request a contract. This time, it’s Yoruba turn and in Yorubaland, it’s my tenure.”
