Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed his displeasure with one of the party’s presidential candidates, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, after his outburst in Abeokuta.
Tinubu, he claimed, may be sanctioned by the party.
All presidential hopefuls will meet with President Muhammadu Buhari tonight, according to the APC Chairman, during a press briefing on Saturday, June 4.
Adamu further stated that the party has appealed the statutory delegates’ victory, implying that they will not participate in the upcoming presidential primary.
On Saturday, he made the remarks while speaking to reporters at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.
Tinubu said he deserves to lead the country after helping President Buhari win the 2015 election while campaigning in Abeokuta on Thursday.
He made this disclosure while addressing party delegates at the Presidential Lodge in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
If not for me that stood behind Buhari, he wouldn’t have become the President. He tried the first time, he failed. The second time, he failed. The third, he failed.
He even wept on national television and vowed never to contest again but I went to meet him in Kaduna and told him he will run again, I will stand by you and you will win, but you must not joke with Yorubas and he agreed.
Buhari has not benefited him in any way since he became President, according to the former governor of Lagos State.
Many viewed his speech as disrespectful to the President.
Tinubu, on the other hand, said in a statement on Friday that he held President Buhari in high regard.
He said that his remarks were taken out of context and were not meant to be disrespectful to the President.
Reactions implying he was rude, according to the former Lagos State Governor, were sensational and wrong.
