‘Don’t discuss that one with me’ – says Tinubu on Buhari’s reelection
Tinubu, one of the key persons behind the success of the ruling party in 2015, was said to have fallen out with the leadership of the APC after the last general election.
But Tinubu has maintained that his relationship with Buhari is cordial.
He fielded questions from reporters at the end of Monday’s meeting. However, when asked to comment on the groups endorsing Buhari for reelection, he simply said: “Don’t discuss that one with me”.
Speaking on the allegation that he had been sidelined despite the contributions he made to the victory of APC, he said: “Once you create leadership and it is functioning, you don’t have to babysit that leadership unless there is a loss of confidence and I don’t have that.
“We are the party of the people for the people and by the people and this is a democratic environment. Each of us has our roles to play and that is why we are playing it… In the journey of democracy, you are going to have twists and turns, you are going to have conflicts. Conflicts resolution mechanisms is inbuilt on how you handle your party and the governance and the party are joined by the hips.
“The APC government is on course and will remain on course. We will remain focused to those necessary things about development, welfare and progress of our people. It’s not easy to face the challenges and the well that was dug, the sinkhole that we inherited, but we are sorting that one out gradually.”To Receive Latest Music, Video & News Updates , Add Us To Your WhatsApp: 08035927807; BBM Pin: D1C43241
