2023: How Tinubu Came Up With ‘Infamous’ Slogan ‘Emi lo kan’

Festus Keyamo, the spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign, has explained why Bola Ahmed Tinubu declared that it is legitimately his time to lead.

During a Twitter Spaces Program run by the ABAT (Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu) media team, Keyamo discussed Tinubu’s aspirations for the presidency.

When Atiku Abubakar was “thrown out” of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he was allegedly given a soft landing by Tinubu.

He asserts that one of the factors contributing to the opposition party’s issue is Atiku’s decision to run for office while disregarding the zoning concept.

He said, “In 2007, Asiwaju decided to call on Atiku who had been thrown out of the PDP at that time because Obasanjo ordered a re-registration of all PDP members because he wanted to weed out people like Atiku.

“And so when Atiku went back to his Jada ward, even as Vice-President, they refused to give him a membership card. That was how they threw Atiku out of the PDP. What happened? Asiwaju had already oiled the political machine called the AC at that time.

“He invited Atiku and gave him the ticket on a platter of gold. Asiwaju could have gone for President but he saw the mood of the nation because Obasanjo was just finishing his Presidency. So he knew that the presidency could not remain in the South. That’s a kind of nationalist, patriotic person that Asiwaju is. He decided to give Atiku the ticket, Atiku failed in 2007.”

Speaking further, he said that in 2011, when Mallam Nuhu Ribadu was invited to run for president, Tinubu, then the leader of the Action Congress, declined to choose the presidential ticket.

According to Keyamo, Asiwaju extended his hand across the Niger through President Muhammadu Buhari in 2011, giving him a platform and backing.

He argued that Tinubu has always prioritized the country.

“He bided his time and when the North had finished its eight years, that was what brought the popular phrase of Emilokan. He is not doing it as a matter of right, but he is just saying that, ‘I have paid my due, its time for the nation to look at my way,’ he is not doing it out of arrogance,” Keyamo added.
