NATIONAL leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and President Goodluck Jonathan recently offered him the post of the vice president in a purportedly planned interim national Government (ING), for him to part ways with the APC.
According to a statement which emanated from Tinubu’s media office in Lagos, the presidency had also embarked on a new strategy to stop the momentum of the APC presidential candidate, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari.
In a reply, however, the Director of Media, Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, dismissed the claims as baseless and false, saying that Tinubu and his people had become prisoners of their own delusion and victims of their horrific and terrifying hallucination.
Tinubu had said it was because he rejected the ING overture that the presidency has decided to silence him.
“From what can be gathered through informed sources, the PDP and Jonathan presidency had recently tried to fracture the APC by offering Tinubu the position of vice president in an interim government if he would agree to part company with the popular Buhari.
“Once Tinubu rebuffed the offer to participate in the interim scheme, the presidency decided to change tactics. It would no longer try to entice Tinubu with sugar, but would now move to silence and, if necessary, neutralise him.”READ MORE HERE
