Col Sambo Dauki (rtd), former National Security Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has revealed that he pleaded with Bola Tinubu and Bisi Akande to accept President Muhammadu Buhari as the joint Presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in 2011.

This revelation is contained in a book titled “An Encounter with the Spymaster” written by a public relations professional, Yushau Shuaib.

In the book, Shuaib said: ”The major shocker for me in his (Dasuki) narratives was his campaign for Buhari to emerge the joint candidate for the ACN and CPC in 2011.”

”Dasuki stated that he knelt down begging ‘Baba Bisi Akande’ who was the then chairman of the ACN that, ‘Buhari is a man to be trusted’.

”In their belief that Yorubas and South Westerners are never religious fanatics especially regarding politics, Dasuki and his group suggested that Tinubu should be a running mate to Buhari.

”When other elements opposed that preposition, Tinubu’s team, therefore recommended a Buhari-Osinbajo ticket.”

He said the Buhari-Osinbajo ticket failed to stick as Tunde Bakare was eventually brought forward.
