Tinubu speaks on alleged plan to dump Buhari in APC

Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said he is not planning to leave the party as he also reacted to the violence happened on at Ogun APC rally.

In a statement by Tunde Rahman, Special Adviser, Media to Tinubu, said the attack at Ogun APC rally was disrespectful and could have potentially harmed the person of the President.

He said: ”An incident did actually occur at the Ogun State APC rally, but it is not the one PDP has concocted.

”The true incident that should be reported and condemned is that people who oppose the party and the president tried to infiltrate and disrupt the rally.

”The attack by these operatives is disrespectful of the office of the president and could have potentially harmed the person of the president.

“Such antics have no place in our political discourse. The author of these misdeeds should desist before real harm is done.”

However, reacting to alleged plan to leave APC after a video of him surfaced throwing the party’s flag at the rally in Ogun, Tinubu said:

”If the issue of the flag has become the hotspot of the PDP campaign, then they are in serious trouble.

“During that portion of the Ogun rally, the National Chairman and others were looking for a party flag.

”I spotted one within my reach. I picked it up and attempted to toss it to the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole so that the Chairman can present it to the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Prince Dapo Abiodun.

“If you want to fault me for anything in this matter, your critique can only be limited to the accuracy of my toss.

“Any attempt to enlarge the episode beyond this is fiction and mischief writ large, ” he said.
