Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State claims that if Bola Tinubu had been a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the party would have given him the presidential nomination.

During the iftar meal held by Aisha, President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, the Bauchi governor said he met with the APC chieftain.

He stated that the former governor of Lagos State was essential in President Buhari’s electoral win in 2015.

Mohammed said: “I knew it was an opportunity to meet other eminent Nigerians who are stepping out to present themselves.

“And I was lucky I met Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, we discussed, he was calling me consensus and I told him that: ‘if you were in PDP we would have just given you the ticket because we knew that without you Buhari wouldn’t have been a president’ and so in PDP we recognise contributions.

“We have some people in Nigeria that we must recognise and it was definitely a good outing for me yesterday. The First Lady is a unifier. She has shown that she is a mother of the nation and all the presidential aspirants not only in PDP, APC but all the other parties were there. It was an opportunity to show that I’m really a product of consensus or closing rank irrespective of party differences.”
