The National Leader of the All progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, says he has no plan to contest against President Muhammadu Buhari or anybody that the APC may present in 2019.
He said,the tale that he is actively preparing for a 2019 presidential run is reckless in the extreme. “This scam will fail. Asiwaju supports and stands behind President Buhari. He wishes the President well and that he returns soon. Whether the President is here or away, he has the full loyalty of Asiwaju Tinubu. President Buhari can rest assured on this point: Asiwaju Tinubu will never contest against him nor will he support anyone who does.”
The APC chieftain said his comments during an interview with journalists at the inauguration of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Ondo State on Friday were twisted and misconstrued by those with hidden agenda.
Tinubu said he stated that he had plans of running for office one day but only on the condition that there was a vacancy in Aso Rock.
He added, “Moreover, if you really listen to my words, I did not mention any office or any time-frame. The conditions I mentioned may not become ripe for years to come and they might not pertain to the Presidency. In effect, all I said was the position that any political figure would hold.
