Tinubu Will Work For Atiku In 2019

Former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory(FCT), and member of the Board of Trustees(BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Mohammed Abba Gana has said that he is sure that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will work for the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, during the 2019 Presidential elections.

Abba Gana who cited the personal relationship between Tinubu and Atiku, said the relationship will ensure that Tinubu supports Atiku over his party’s candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari;

“You know that Atiku is very friendly with former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. They formed the APC government together. I am sure that Tinubu may realise that he faces less danger with the Atiku president. They have common businesses and I am sure they would work together. Tinubu has more things in common with Atiku than Buhari.”

However, the Media Adviser of Tinubu, Tunde Rahman has dismissed Abba Gana’s position:

“His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu indicated long ago where he stood on the matter of the 2019 election. He has continued to say he remains firmly behind that patriot, President Muhammadu Buhari, in his mission to rebuild the country from the ruins of the PDP years.

“Yes, His Excellency Asiwaju has had a relationship with former Vice President, His Excellency Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, just like he has had with many of other leaders in his political journey. But this is about Nigeria, the well-being of the country and of Nigerians. On this score, he has made his pick.”
