The leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola
Tinubu has said that he sacrificed his Presidential
ambition for the party’s chosen candidate, Muhammadu
Buhari.
Tinubu stated this on Friday, January 30, during the
party’s Presidential campaign rally in Lagos State.
The former Lagos State governor said that he gave up
his ambition because Buhari had more experience and
would be able to deal effectively with the country’s
problems.
“People define patriotism as putting the country first
but this is what the ‘Poverty Development Party’
refuses to understand. We chose Buhari not because
Bola Tinubu is not interested in the Presidency. I am
capable, competent, qualified, younger and richer but
there comes a time that people must make sacrifices
for their nation,” Tinubu said.
“I prayed that Nigeria would get better and we would
not need a man like him (Buhari). But today, we are in
a great crisis; we face a lot of challenges. When South
Africa was in a great dilemma and was about to
disintegrate, they called Nelson Mandela of 74 years
old. He used his wisdom to save his country. When the
United States was in economic depression, they called
73-year-old Ronald Reagan because he was frugal and
incorruptible,” he added.
“When America was faced with depression and war,
they called a retired General, Dwight Eisenhower, to
rescue the country and the country was returned on a
path of success. “When France was faced with war and
economic depression, they called a retired General,
Charles De Gaulle, to rescue the country,” Tinubu
continued.
“So what do we need now? Buhari. This is the time for
us. General Buhari, whether you are qualified or not
qualified, we are calling you to come and rescue us in
Nigeria,” he concluded.
Meanwhile the APC has denied reports that Buhari was
stoned » during the rally as alleged by former Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos governorship aspirant,
Musiliu Obanikoro .
