Tinubu’s stand is in Buhari’s interest – Olaosebikan

By Lekan Bilesanmi

The exit of   former Vice President  Atiku Abubakar from the All Progressives Congress (APC) will have no  significant  effect  on the APC in  the 2019 general elections as no serving governor,  presiding officer of the National Assembly or key national executive officer of the party is in sync with his departure.

A chieftain of the APC, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan, said this in Abuja  yesterday.

When asked of the declaration of Asiwaju  Ahmed Bola Tinubu that the party would not give automatic ticket to President Muhammadu Buhari for second term, Olaosebikan told journalists that the position of Tinubu was in the best interest of the President, APC and the country as a whole.

His words: “Asiwaju,   with the declaration of no automatic ticket, was merely portraying   the President as a genuine democrat who believes in due process. What Asiwaju Tinubu said was in support of strengthening our democracy and our political institution which we need to do with all seriousness.

You would recall too, that he stated that all the organs of the party would support him through the processes. In a nutshell, he is in full support of his second term and you know with him, all the APC governors and the presiding officers in the National Assembly, the ticket is already in the pocket of the President.”
