Tinubu Sneers At APC Chairman, Adamu, Says ‘Some People Wanted Buhari To Anoint A Candidate Before The Primary’

The Presidential Candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Sunday took an indiect jab at the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdulahi Adamu, saying that some people wanted President Muhammadu Buhari to anoint one of the Presidential aspirants as the candidate of the party but the President declined.

Tinubu, in a statement issued Sunday by his Media Office and signed by Mr. Tunde Rahman, said the role played by the President and APC Northern Governors who insisted that all the Presidential aspirants must be allowed to go to the field proved to him that Nigeria can survive its unity and challenges.

Specifically, a day before the APC Presidential primary, the National Chairman of APC, Senator Adamu, had during the meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party announced the President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmed Lawan as the anointed candidate of the party.

But other members of the NWC and APC Northern Governors insisted that all the Presidential aspirants must be allowed to go to the field.

However, the Presidential candidate of APC who presented his Action Plan to the leaders of Afenifere, while speaking at the residence of Pa Reuben Fasoranti on Sunday in Akure, said President Buhari and APC Northern Governors proved to him that Nigeria can survive its unity and challenges.

According to Tinubu, “the North proved to me Nigeria can survive its unity. Some people want President Muhammadu Buhari to announce someone but the President said No. He insisted the process must go on democratically.

“The President said anyone that would mess up the APC process would see the other side of his eyes. He remained upright and saw the process to the end.

“Northern APC Governors resolved that the Presidency must go to the South and especially South West. Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Abdullahi Ganduje and others supported me to the end. The battle was tough and at a point I was in doubt. There were many rumours and I became confused about what to believe.
