|Vanguard-buhari And Tinubu Wont Contest by bashr8: 3:39am On Jun 10, 2012|
The two met in Kaduna at the residence of Buhari last Thursday. Both men also drove together to Kano to the waiting embrace of a mammoth crowd.
It was gathered, at the weekend, that discussions between both men centred on how to proceed preparatory to the 2015 general elections.
Of specific concern, Sunday Vanguard was told by a source privy to the meeting, was the issue of presenting a “united front for the presidential engagement”.
Although talks are still on, the source said that one of the first steps to be taken by each of the parties “would be the movement towards the centre”.
To this end, both men are said to be disposed to a compromise that “would see each relegating his ambition for the common good of the proposed alliance”.
If all goes well, both men, according to our source, would seek and anoint candidates for the presidential election.
In fact, the reason both leaders have decided to commence talks in earnest is “just so they would avoid the type of last minute rancour that led to the collapse of talks last year”, a source said.
It would be recalled that last-minute efforts by the ACN and CPC to forge an alliance for last year’s presidential election collapsed.
The inability of each of the party’s leaders to subsume their ambitions led to the collapse of the talks.
