The All Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s trustworthiness is what distinguishes him as the candidate to beat in the 2019 presidential elections.
Tinubu argued that the character of the two presidential candidate front runners — President Buhari and ex-VP Atiku Abubakar — could not be more distinct.
The National leader use this adjective “Honest” to describe Buhari and also gave an instance that”Leave a Naira on the table with Buhari in the room, You will find the Naira on the table when you return “. This is use to quantify how Buhari has been honest with his followers.
“When Buhari says ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ you know where he stands. He means what he says, no more, no less.
“With Atiku, things are more nuanced. This shows he has no vision for the nation except the naked pursuit of power for the naked use of that power,” Tinubu said.
Speaking in Lagos on Tuesday via a statement by his Media Officer, Mr. Tunde Rahman, the ex-Governor also assured President Muhammadu Buhari that the party’s campaign council has accepted the assignment given to it by the President and would work for the country.
“We accept President Buhari’s Assignment,” Tinubu said in a statement by his Media Officer, Mr. Tunde Rahman, in Lagos, noting that the council would not let President Buhari down.
Tinubu, also the Co-Chair of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, said that letting Buhari down would also let down the nation.
He said he had, therefore, rallied members of the campaign council, with the Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, as Director-General for the task ahead.
He noted that the Peoples Democratic Party should not be allowed to return to power and “return to the days where they ruled the nation like overlords.
” He opined that “I think I can speak for all members of the campaign council that we accept the assignments given by the President with devotion and a firm commitment to perform to our utmost, individually and collectively, on the tasks given”.
