All Progressives Congress, APC presidential aspirant, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has recalled how President Muhammadu Buhari failed in three consecutive attempts to become Nigeria President.
Tinubu who was attacking or condemning those he said he made them to become whom they are today, but now working against him, stated this on Thursday while addressing Ogun APC delegates ahead of the party’s primaries.
Tinubu also said he nominated Professor Yemi Osinbajo as Buhari’s running mate.
Tinubu who made the claim in the home state of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, one of his rivals for the APC presidential ticket, said Buhari had offered him a running mate ticket, but some blocs rose against him, fanning ember of Muslim-Muslim ticket.
He disclosed that he pencilled down Yemi Kadoso, Wale Edun and Yemi Osinbajo, but later settled for the Professor of Law.
You have not heard this from me before. This is the first place I am saying this.”
If not me that led the war front, Buhari wouldn’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 with the matters of the Yorubas. Since he has emerged I have not been appointed minister. I didn’t get contract.
This time, it’s Yoruba turn and in Yorubaland, it’s my tenure.
