"I Will Never Contest Against President Muhammadu Buhari" — Bola Tinubu

Two days ago, APC Chieftain, Bola Tinubu said and i quote "If there is vacancy on presidency, i will not rule out contesting for it". Today Bola Tinubu said and i quote "I will not contest against President Muhammadu Buhari". Am i right to assume that Bola Ahmed Tinubu is warming up to contest against his party leader?

According to Vanguard News, leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, yesterday, vowed never to contest the Presidency against President Muhammadu Buhari. He noted that a newspaper report to the contrary was conjured to put him at odds with the President. In a strongly worded rebuttal to the news report by the daily, Tinubu affirmed his unwavering loyalty to Buhari, saying permutations of him defecting were ignorant of his consistent political principles.

Tinubu in his reaction issued by Mr. Tunde Rahman, his Media Assistant, said: 

“The story is a manufactured tale weaved by its authors to try to create division where there is none. Those who wrote this fantasy piece seek to place Asiwaju Tinubu at odds with President Buhari. Writing such a baseless report is a very foul and wrong thing to do.

Noting that the report aimed to skew the banter the APC leader had with reporters in Akure last weekend, he said the report “opted to gain false sensation by completely mocking the tenor of the brief banter Asiwaju Tinubu had with journalists at the inauguration of Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.

“As a politician, he cannot preclude the possibility of running for office in the future because no man knows what the future will hold. To translate this general statement of political reality into a tale that he is actively preparing for a 2019 presidential run is reckless in the extreme.”

Concluding that the newspaper had joined “with those who seek to put Asiwaju Tinubu at odds with our President,” he said: 

“This scam will fail. Asiwaju supports and stands behind President Buhari. He wishes the President well and that he returns soon. ‘’Whether the President is here or away, he has the full loyalty of Asiwaju Tinubu. President Buhari can rest assured on this point: Asiwaju Tinubu will never contest against him nor will he support anyone who does.”

NB: With due respect to Bola Tinubu, i believe when a rumor starts, it a matter of time for it to be true. For the mere fact that is not a true story yet is just the denial from the party reported about.
