Without Me, Buhari Would Have Lost In 2015- Tinubu (Watch)

Without Me, Buhari Would Have Lost In 2015- Tinubu.

A top presidential aspirant of the rulling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says he led the struggle that produced President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

Tinubu also said he nominated Prof Yemi Osinbajo as Buhari’s running mate.

He spoke at presidential lodge in Abeokuta, the state capital, while addressing the APC delegates ahead of the party’s primaries.

Tinubu was in company with Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, his Kano counterpart, Umar Ganduje, and former Borno State Governor, Kasim Shettima.

The former Governor of Lagos State said he made the revelations for the first time in Ogun State, home state of Osinbajo, one of his rivals for the APC presidential ticket.

He said Buhari had offered him a running mate ticket, but some blocs rose against him, fanning ember of Muslim-Muslim ticket.

Tinubu also said when he was asked to submit three names for running mate, he pencilled down Yemi Kadoso, Wale Edun and Yemi Osinbajo.

He added that he later settled for Osinbajo as running mate.

 Tinubu addressed the delegates in Yoruba.

Tinubu also said without God and him, Governor Dapo Abiodun would not have emerged in 2019 election.

In his remarks, Abiodun who had earlier declared his support for Osinbajo’s candidature, refused to endorse Tinubu.

He told Tinubu that delegates from the state would do “the right thing” at the convention.

Abiodun described Tinubu as a political warrior, serial winner and strategist.
