Tinubu Will Never Abandon APC For Buhari-Rep

By Ikenga Chronicles December 23, 2016

The All Progressives Congress(APC)has again insisted its National Leader, Bola Tinubu would never dump the ruling party for any other political party ahead of 2019.

A member of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Ayo Omidiran, who stated this on Thursday, December 22, maintained that Tinubu’s strong allies like the Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, and other associates, would not leave the APC which they sacrificed so much to build for anybody.

Omidiran, who represents Ayedaade, Irewole, Isokan Federal Constituency of Osun State, said that other politicians (Buhari inclusive) could choose to leave the APC, but not Tinubu and his associates.

This came against the backdrop of the supposed rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and Tinubu in the build up to 2019.

“Tinubu, my governor, his associates and those people you mentioned will not leave the APC for anybody because it is their party.”

“There is nothing like leaving the APC for another party. Leave it for whom? Other people can say they want to leave but Tinubu will not leave his party” she said.

“In APC, have you ever heard of New APC or any such names? It is in the PDP that you can talk about factions or new PDP; we don’t have new APC” she added.

Asked whether the APC would survive as a united front till 2019 to contest the general elections, Omidiran said the party was intact.

“We remain solid; the party is strong” she insisted.

Omidiran described herself as a “loyal party member to the core” as exhibited during the acrimonious contest for the speakership of the 8th House of Representatives in June, 2015.

“But, I can tell you now that all that is in the past. The House is one and united and there was nothing really personal in the struggle back then between Mr. Speaker and I. It was just to support the party’s position” she added.
