Ex-Governor of Lagos State and one of the foremost presidential aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bola Tinubu, has said that without his support, President Muhammadu Buhari would not have won the 2015 election.
Tinubu made this assertion while addressing delegates on Ogun State as part of his campaign tour ahead of the party’s presidential primary election.
Tinubu said, “If not me that led the war from the front, Buhari would not have emerged as the president. He contested first, second and third times, but lost. He even said on television that he won’t contest again.
“But I went to his home in Katsina, I told him you would contest and win, but you won’t joke with the matters of the Yorubas.
“Since he has emerged, I have not been appointed Minister. I didn’t get a contract.
“This time, it’s Yoruba’s turn and in Yoruba land, it’s my tenure.”
Tinubu appealed to the 60 delegates in Ogun to support him during the APC primary election.
It will be recalled that President Buhari has appealed to governors of the APC to assist him in picking his successor
