2019: Tinubu Advises Obasanjo

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has called on former President, Olusegun Obasanjo to leave President Muhammadu Buhari alone and face his poultry business.

Tinubu spoke at the Lagos APC Secretariat in Ogba on Tuesday during the party’s stakeholders’ meeting. He said APC will ensure Buhari’s re-election next year, notwithstanding Obasanjo’s opposition.

“Look at us in Lagos, we can get angry with one another, it is only God that has perfection. When you elected me as governor, I laid the foundation. If we didn’t lay the foundation for Lagos, there’s no amount of wisdom that Fashola may have that will make the state as progressive as it has been.

“If we didn’t lay the foundation, there’s no amount of wisdom that Ambode may possess that will make things as smooth as they are,so, Obasanjo that is talking, if he had laid a strong foundation in Abuja, the country would not have scattered; things would not have been going the way they are going. And you (Obasanjo) want to sit in Ota; face your chicken and egg business.

“You cannot govern from Ota; you cannot tell us who to vote for; you have used up your time. Let us tell Obasanjo so. Our Buhari is our own; we were the ones who brought him and we will secure the second term for him,” Tinubu said in Yoruba language.

He described those who defected from the APC as political prostitutes who were bound by conspiracy.Tinubu said in spite of the defections, “We (the APC) remain strong.”

“You heard we won in Bauchi; you heard we won in Kogi; you heard we won in Katsina. Did we wear a bandage around our neck to win? We went to Ekiti, what did we bring back? Governor! The broom swept them, cleanly,” Tinubu said.

“We are going to register additional members; new members. We must open our register throughout the state and hold me responsible if you don’t have your membership card at the end of the registration.

“We are going to use only the membership card of the APC for the primaries,” he said.

He charged party members to ensure they collect their PVCs before the August 17 deadline, saying they should sleep at the collection centres if they had to.

Tinubu, promised that party executives who performed well would be rewarded with the second term, as a “bonus.”

“That is how our party is,” he declared.
