It was reported that former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, made an unpleasant statement last Thursday when he claimed that without him, Buhari would not have emerged the president in 2015.
However, The Presidency stated that no one has the right to claim to have single-handedly engineered the emergence of Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) as President in the 2015 general elections.
According to a statement titled, ‘Comment on the statement made by a leading APC flagbearer candidate,’ signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the Presidency said the past should not decide the outcome of the next general election and that what mattered today is to elect a candidate that will “make our country better than it has ever been.”
The presidential aspirant made the claim at the Presidential Lodge in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, when he was addressing the APC delegates ahead of the party’s primary election.
In its reaction, the Presidency said, “It is perhaps not surprising that on the eve of the All Progressives Congress flagbearer primary, there are those running as candidates who wish to associate themselves with the President’s rise to elected office seven years ago.
“There are many people who played parts, large and small, in his historic election in 2015, making history as the first opposition candidate to defeat a sitting President with power changing hands peacefully at the ballot box.
