Buhari And Tinubu Are Like Siamese Twins–APC Chieftain

By Ikenga Chronicles December 14, 2016

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)might be disappointed on Tuesday evening over the report that emanated from the alleged secret meeting between the All Progressives Congress(APC) National leader, Bola Tinubu and President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of 2019.

This came on the heels of the purported mega party being touted by the Markafi faction of the PDP in alleged conjunction with Tinubu.

Mohammed Lawal, who was the Deputy Director, Coordination and Implementation of the APC Presidential Campaign Office in 2015 said that the final outcome of the meeting was that ”Tinubu  will only leave the APC  if Buhari quits the ruling party.’’

Lawal, therefore, dismissed reports that there was friction between Tinubu and the President.

The APC chieftain, who is also a member of the board of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, said Tinubu had benefited hugely from the Buhari government, adding that there was no cause for disagreement between the ex-Lagos State governor and the President.

He said, “Tinubu is not complaining and he has benefited nothing from this government. People are complaining on behalf of Tinubu in order to drive a wedge between him and the President.”

“Tinubu has said he has no plan to form any mega party and even the Chairman of the PDP’s Board of Trustees has said he hasn’t spoken to Tinubu in over three years but people just don’t want to accept the truth. For God’s sake, people should leave the man alone.”

“Tinubu is going nowhere. He and Buhari are like siamese twins and no one can separate them politically. Tinubu will only leave the APC if the President leaves the APC.”

Lawal said the Buhari administration was doing everything possible to take the country out of recession.

He, therefore, urged the Emir of Kano and former Central Bank Governor, Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, not to meddle in politics.

The APC chief added, “The emir has free access to the President and his economic team. He is no longer the CBN governor but now holds a respected traditional position. He should not soil his turban. Such outbursts should not emanate from an emir.”

Lawal hailed the performance of the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, who will be screened by the Senate this week.

He urged the Senate to quickly confirm Magu’s appointment and stop playing politics.
