MEET WHEREVER, WE NIGERIANS ARE WISER. Tinubu TELLS Atiku
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu said his ruling party All Progressives Congress(APC) is not skittish that the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is holding strategy meetings in Dubai ahead of the 2019 elections.
Tinubu, the national leader of APC, spoke with State House correspondents Yesterday 31 October 2018 after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said his meeting with the President was about the nation, Nigerians, peace, stability and economic progress.
He expressed the conviction that Nigerians would not want to return to the deplorable state into which the PDP plunged the country.
“We don’t fear, whether Atiku is meeting in the jungle, in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi. People are free to meet and strategize in any way they felt, but we are not going back to the illusion of the PDP. It is not possible; Nigerians will not do that.
“They say slow and steady wins the race. We inherited that from our forefathers and knowledgeable people. “We can’t go back to the pit that we inherited for 16 years. They can strategize from anywhere, but a leopard cannot change its skin,”.
When asked if he was in support of the call for Oshiomhole’s removal, the former Lagos State Governor said, “No! We all have to respect party supremacy”.
