Tinubu Allegedly Refuses to Head Buhari’s Campaign
Tinubu Says He Wants to Focus on the South West
The national leader of the All Progressive Congress disclosed that he is in full support of the APC president but he wants to concentrate on the Southwest.
Reports from Daily Independent are that Tinubu already has Lagos and Osun and was working to consolidate his stronghold in Ogun, Ondo, Ekiti and Oyo states.
Daily Independent in its report also quoted a source who said: “Tinubu has politely rejected the request to lead President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign for the 2019 elections. Rather, he has chosen to focus his attention more on the south west.
“We don’t really know the reason for this but we have feelers that he seems unsure of what the fate of APC may be in the presidential elections and as such wants to secure his base in the south west first.
“He will also be actively involved in trying to retain Lagos for APC especially given the fact that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the party’s candidate is contesting against a Jimi Agbaje, who is an experienced politician.”
