Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor, has been appointed to reconcile aggrieved party members ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Oluremi, Wife of the National Leader of APC, who represents Lagos Central Senatorial District at the Senate, on Monday featured in ‘Your View’, a breakfast show of Television Continental, where she alleged that Tinubu was sidelined despite his efforts towards ensuring that A.P.C won the polls.She disclosed that Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, fought tirelessly to see that APC takes over the reigns in Aso Rock in the 2015 presidential election and she was forced to discourage her husband from his continued loyalty to the Presidency and the APC after it became obvious that they had used and dumped him.
“He was campaigning, I did too. We were running three campaigns in my house. And for him to be trashed like that? But I saw somebody who has love for this country. I hate to speak because when I stand in the front of God, I don’t want, because of this man, go to hell.Occasionally, I would chip in and I would say, ‘You ’re still helping out? Why are you helping out?’ He would say, ‘This country matters to me more.
Tinubu however said that despite that the Buhari- led administration was now under massive criticisms, the President remained “the candidate to beat” in the forthcoming poll.
“Change takes only one person to champion. And you need leadership. For me, Buhari is still the candidate to beat. Leadership is inspirational. Management is technical. If you have all the degrees and you’re smart and savvy, it is not about leadership. How many people are you inspiring? And Buhari, how many years has he been there? I am not campaigning for him. I am not; because I have looked at the dynamics; the poor still trust him. I will tell you: when it comes to integrity, Buhari has it. I don’t know about now.”
