Presidential aspirant, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said President Muhammadu Buhari won’t have gotten to his current position if not for him.
This is as he revealed how he prevailed on Buhari to contest again after the General had lost on three occasions.
Tinubu made this known while addressing delegates and members of the All Progressives Congress at the presidential lodge in Abeokuta on Thursday.
“You have not heard this from me before. This is the first place I am saying this,” Tinubu who addressed the delegates in Yoruba said.
Speaking on Buhari’s emergence, he said “If not me that led the war front, Buhari wouldn’t have emerged. 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 contract.
“This time, it’s Yoruba turn and in Yorubaland, it’s my tenure.”
