Tinubu says it was Saraki and El-Rufai who did not allow him become VP to Buhari

It seems Segun Adeniyi's book 'Against the Run of Play' is the latest and juiciest revelational track in town going by all the interesting excerpts that have found their way to the media pending the book's launch tomorrow (28/04/2017).

“But they (Saraki and El-Rufai) went behind to instigate Buhari and some other people in the party against me on the pretext of religion. That was not right. They were canvassing arguments that the Christians in the North would not vote for a Muslim-Muslim ticket."

“Nasir el-Rufai was also selling the same argument within the CPC (the defunct Congress for Progressive Change) because at that point, he still wanted to have Pastor Bakare brought in as Buhari’s running mate.”

“I backed down because I did not want to be depicted as causing a problem. I backed away from the position in order to offer Buhari a name I once raised with him in 2011: that of Professor Yemi Osibanjo,” - Bola Tinubu

  • Tinubu made this allegation in the book.
Our take on the matter
  • Ethnicity and Religion are Nigeria's original sin.
  • Dear Jagaban, there is always another time, another day so don't worry, be happy!
