The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has spoken on the role he played in the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 election.
The Presidential hopeful, while addressing the Ogun State APC delegates at the Presidential Lodge, Abeokuta, said Buhari, after losing 2003, 2007 and 2011 presidential elections, vowed not to contest again.
The former Lagos State Governor, however, said he went to Katsina to persuade Buhari to contest and subsequently supported him to win in 2015.
Tinubu also took a swipe at one of his fellow presidential aspirants in the APC, the Vice-President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, saying he nominated him as Buhari’s running mate.
He said without him, Dapo Abiodun would not have been elected governor of Ogun State in 2019.
The national leader was accompanied by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo – Olu; his Kano counterpart, Umar Ganduje and former Borno State Governor, Kasim Shettima.
