Tinubu: Buhari Would Have Lost In 2015 If It Hadn't Been For Me


Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a leading presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims to have spearheaded the political battle that resulted in the election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

Tinubu also stated unequivocally that he nominated Professor Yemi Osinbajo to be Buhari's running partner.

He addressed the APC delegates at the presidential lodge in Abeokuta, the state capital, ahead of the party's primaries.

Tinubu was joined by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, Umar Ganduje, the governor of Kano, and Kasim Shettima, the former governor of Borno State.

Former Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode said he made the allegations for the first time in Ogun State, the home state of APC presidential candidate Yemi Osinbajo.

He claimed that Buhari offered him a ticket as a running partner, but that other factions came up against him, fueling the flames of a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

When asked to give three candidates for running partner, the former governor said he pencilled down Yemi Kadoso, Wale Edun, and Yemi Osinbajo.

He went on to say that he eventually chose Osinbajo as his running mate.

"This is the first time you've heard from me. "This is the first time I'm saying this," Tinubu stated in Yoruba to the delegates.

"If it hadn't been for me leading the war front, Buhari would not have emerged," he claimed. He competed in the first, second, and third rounds, but lost all three times. He even stated on television that he will not run for office again.

"However, I visited him in Katsina. I assured him you'd compete and win, but you wouldn't mess about with Yoruba issues. I have not been named minister since his appearance. I was not offered a contract.

"This time, it's Yoruba's turn, and it's my stay in Yorubaland."

Governor Dapo Abiodun would not have won the 2019 election if it hadn't been for God and Tinubu.

"Could Dapo, who is seated here, have become Governor without me?" They tore up all of his posters when we were at the stadium. Even the party flag was refused to be handed over to him; I was the one who brought it. "If he wants to meet God in the right place, he must understand that he would not have become Governor without God and me."

Abiodun, who had previously stated his support for Osinbajo's candidacy, refused to endorse Tinubu in his statements.

He told Tinubu that at the convention, the state's delegates would do "the correct thing."

Tinubu, according to Abiodun, is a political warrior, a serial winner, and a strategist.
