An associate of the former Lagos State governor has revealed that Tinubu, former Lagos State governor and presidential aspirant has concluded plans to dump the ruling party, if the primaries which is coming up soon is schemed against him.
The associate who prefers to remain anonymous also stated that the new development was the reason why former secretary to the government of the federation, Babachir Lawal said that Tinubu had plan B if APC primaries are manipulated against him. However, he also noted that APC remains the primary platform Tinubu intends to actuslize his dream, although other options including SDP would be explored if the primaries are not quite credible and transparent.
“It is too early to ask if Asiwaju would leave the APC for another party. He is a big factor in APC, a party he helped formed, financed and nurtured into what it is today. We are not unaware of recent developments and attempts to insult a man who has paid his dues in the political evolution of this country. But that is not important for now. What I can tell you is that our leader, like other contestants, is looking forward to a credible process that would lead to the emergence of our flag bearer. But if that process is compromised, I can tell you for free that we will encourage him to explore other options.
Yes, a lot has been said about SDP and Asiwaju. When we get to that bridge, we will cross it. SDP offered him a platform to become a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria years ago but for now, he is in APC and will remain there until circumstance dictates otherwise,” he said.
