Tinubu Set To Join SDP If He Fail To Clinch APC Presidential Ticket – Associate Reveals

An acquaintance of All Progressives Congress national leader Bola Tinubu stated on Tuesday that the presidential hopeful has finalised arrangements to leave the ruling party if he does not get the party’s presidential ticket on May 30.

Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir Lawal recently revealed that Tinubu had a plan B if the APC primaries were rigged against him, according to an acquaintance of the former governor of Lagos State who talked to Newsmen on the condition of anonymity.

He stated that while the APC remains the presidential candidate’s platform, he will consider other possibilities like as the SDP if the ruling party’s primaries are not transparent and credible.

Tinubu Reveals Who To Handover To After Eight Years As President

The associate said, “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 form, 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.”

An ACP chieftain, Moses Ayom recently called on Babachir Lawal to withdraw his claim that Tinubu would dump the ruling party, he said, “right now, the NWC is the leadership of the APC and it should be given all kinds of support to succeed. The idea of indirectly threatening the NWC that Tinubu has another option if he is not given a ticket should not arise at all. As a committed APC leader from the Middle-Belt, I call on Babachir to withdraw the comments and apologize to the party immediately.”
