President Buhari Seeks Help From Tinubu

President Muhammadu Buhari may have started a move to parley with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of 2019 presidential election.


PUNCH reports that findings showed that Buhari decided to reach out to Tinubu to seek his support for the control of the APC. It was gathered that Tinubu was not happy with the appointments the President had been making since his inauguration on May 29 last year.

A prominent member of the party told Saturday PUNCH that Tinubu had been maintaining what he described as a “siddon look” attitude towards the President before now.

A Presidency source, who confirmed the recent moves by Buhari, said that reaching out to Tinubu was borne out of the alleged subtle moves by some elements in the party, including a former Kano State Governor, Dr. Rabiu Kwankwaso, to reposition themselves for the 2019 presidential race.
