Buhari wouldn’t have become president without me – Tinubu


Chief Bola Tinubu, an All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, claims that President Muhammadu Buhari would not have won the 2015 election without his backing.

Speaking in Ogun State, Tinubu said, “If not me that led the war from the front, Buhari would not have emerged as the president. 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 a contract.

“This time, it’s Yoruba’s turn and in Yoruba land, it’s my tenure.”

Tinubu urged the 60 Ogun delegates to vote for him in the APC primary election.

Remember that President Buhari has asked APC governors to help him choose his successor.
