Those who will not support Tinubu’s presidential ambitions
- President Buhari
Here is what Lamido said:
< p class= "align-left">“Well, now if the southern governors were going to say they’re all going to APC, let them say so. And then let’s have someone like Amaechi as president. Do you think Wike will agree?Right now, Tinubu is going through the Hell from who?His confreres!Afenifere doesn’t like Tinubu and they were so open about it. APC governors don’t like Tinubu either. They say he’s too dominant and a dictator. I mean, he’s their own son, why can’t they make him?
“So let’s have some level of honesty and sincerity in what we do. When southern Nigeria gets together and says, ‘We presidents out want to produce in the South,” then they should collapse their own political boundary into a political party and then say, for example, Amaechi is coming forward as a candidate, I don’t think Wike will agree.
“Mark my point, Buhari will never support Tinubu because I know the mentality and psychology of the man. He will never support Tinubu. People didn’t believe me and I say wait and see. At the moment, the governors of APC are against Tinubu. So this question, having our own, like the demand of the Southern APC governors are the first to unite against Tinubu.”
