Buhari Is A Puppet To No One, Tinubu Slams PDP

National leader of the All Progress Congress and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has slammed People’s Democratic Party for saying a vote for Buhari is a vote for Tinubu. Claiming Tinubu will control Major General Muhammadu Buhari’s government if he is elected as President of Nigeria in 2015 general elections.

Recently the People’s Democratic Party accused former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Tinubu of using General Buhari as a puppet. In a statement released by Tinubu’s media office, he said Buhari was elected at APC national convention because of his qualities. “He is a man of principle and one who is committed to the nation. His overriding concern is the wellbeing of Nigeria.”

Tinubu further emphasised that Buhari can never be a puppet to anyone. “A man of such principle and leadership presence cannot ever be a puppet. Those who claim he is a puppet do grave insult to an outstanding patriot and millions of Nigerians who support him.”
The former governor then advised that the PDP should solve issues arising from their own party. “PDP would do better if they spent their time trying to fix their rickety ship after such dismal primaries than to cast stones at the APC’s more democratic and genuine process. They speak in this manner because they are afraid the APC will confront them with a ticket they cannot beat by fair means.

“We will do our own internal consultations and arrive at a ticket we believe is best suited to govern Nigeria. If they are so interested in who we pick they are free to quit their bankrupt party and join the party that offers the best hope for this nation and its future.
