How Vice-President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo made me not to support Tinubu, others – President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday said he didn’t support any presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) because he didn’t want to hurt his lieutenant, Vice-President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

Zolexreporters reports that according to Buhari, in one of the crucial meetings in the build-up to the APC Special Convention in June, a governor of the ruling party wanted him to disclose his preferred aspirant, but he did not, because Osinbajo, also a presidential hopeful, was present.

Buhari revisited the APC presidential primary election exercise when he paid a Sallah visit to the Emir of Katsina, Abdulmumin Usman Kabir, at his palace.

“I was given a list of thirty (30) aspirants to pick from. Most of them were my ministers and governors. So, who will I choose or support?” Buhari said in Hausa.

“One of the governors even came to see me and asked who are we to choose.

“If I do that, it would affect my Vice President because he was listening to our conversation. I then told them to choose who they want.

“So, they elected Bola Tinubu as APC presidential candidate.”
