Tinubu Lamentations

Read Time:1 Minute, 27 Second

“I made Buhari President after he lost three times and cried on TV” Tinubu says

The Nigerian ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader and presidential aspirant Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu lamented his betrayal by people he brought to power, Thursday in Ogun state while meeting APC delegates.

Detailing his grievances with President Muhammadu Buhari. “After losing three times and crying on national television, I went to Buhari and promised that I’d make him president.” Tinubu lamented complaining about the lack of support from Buhari. The lamentations comes after Buhari told APC governors that he should be allowed to pick his successor.

Speaking in Yoruba, he told the delegates when issues arose about a Muslim-Muslim ticket he had to step down for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who is a Christian. “Buhari asked me to be his running mate, but Saraki campaigned against a Muslim-Muslim ticket. He felt it would affect his ambition to be senate president. The senate president could not be a Muslim as well. They rose against it. I said ‘I have someone that’s a Christian and I will nominate him. This party must not scatter’. And I nominated him (Osinbajo). That’s the truth,” Tinubu said.

Tinubu is very bitter that his erstwhile protege Yemi Osinbajo is also aspiring to be president when it should be his turn.

“But I went to his home in Katsina. I told him ‘you would contest and win, but you won’t joke with the matter of the Yoruba’. Since he has been elected, I have not been appointed minister. I didn’t get a contract. He continued.

“This time, it’s Yoruba turn and in Yorubaland, it’s my turn.” Tinubu stated.
