Ambassador Abayomi Nurain Mumuni, the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) gubernatorial candidate in Lagos State in 2011, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to do for him what Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu did for him in 2015.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, is the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate in the February 25 election.
Mumuni, a member of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council’s Security and Intelligence Committee, stated that Tinubu requires greater help from Buhari than he is currently receiving.
The APC chieftain made these revelations in a statement distributed to journalists over the weekend by his media aide, Rasheed Abubakar.
Remember that Buhari ran unsuccessfully for president on the platform of the All Nigeria People’s Party in 2003 and 2007. (ANPP).
He ran unsuccessfully for the same position in 2011 on the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) platform.
Buhari won the 2015 presidential election after some political heavyweights, including Tinubu, combined with other political parties to establish the APC in 2014.
Mumuni, on the other hand, has urged Buhari to repay what he claims Tinubu done for him (Buhari) before he won the election.
The APC chieftain stated that Tinubu, his supporters, and the APC in general require greater assistance from Buhari than they are now receiving.
During his speech, Mumuni stated that Tinubu held Buhari and supported him like a baby learning to crawl in the 2015 and 2019 elections.
He noted that Tinubu has yet to receive such backing from President Buhari, particularly with the poll less than a month away.
He then asked Buhari to repay the kindness shown to him during that tough time.
“Buhari should return what Tinubu did for him in 2015,” Mumuni said in a statement made available to Newsmen on Saturday. We anticipate more from Buhari than we are now receiving.
“Asiwaju carried Buhari, backing him like a baby learning how to crawl in 2015 and 2019, to win both elections. Basically, we are expecting President Buhari to reciprocate the gesture that was extended to him during that trying period.
“Myself and Buhari have gone into polls during the days of ANPP and CPC, and we both lost the elections woefully. There was no election held in the days of ANPP, CPC that I was not at the polls, so what are we talking about? Buhari should do better than what we are getting in APC of today.
“However, Asiwaju will surely win the election, that’s to cut the long stories short, because Bola Tinubu has what is required to deliver good governance than those clowns masquerading around the country soliciting for support or vote”.
