APC Presidency: Tinubu, Osinbajo Groups Differ Over South-West Meeting by Joylove2324(f): 4:00am On May 06, 2022
LAGOS—Two groups promoting the presidential bid of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and national leader of All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, were yesterday at each others’ throats over the proposed meeting of South West aspirants contesting on the platform of the party.

While the Director-General of Bola Ahmed Tinubu Our Choice 2023, BATOC23, Dr. Ayo Owoade, described the meeting as a necessity to keep the zone in a vantage position to pick the ticket, the Convener of Progressive Lawyers for Osinbajo, PLO, Dr. Kayode Ajulo, alleged that the meeting had been prepared to favour a particular aspirant.

The meeting, slated for Lagos today, is convened by former governors of Osun and Ogun states, Bisi Akande and Olusegun Osoba, as well as other party stakeholders.

Aspirants as the APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, and former governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, who have all declared interest to contest the presidency on the platform of the party, are expected to attend the meeting.

It’ll place region in vantage position — BATOC23 D-G

Reacting to the scheduled meeting, BATOC23’s Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Abimbola Tooki, urged the party to go for a candidate who could unite the people and develop Nigeria.

The statement read: “Fairness and justice should be the watchword of APC in the zone in picking its candidate for the presidential election, ahead of 2023.

“The conveners of the meeting should work to build a united front for the South West to take over power from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. The party must also realise that in-fighting, internal wrangling and crisis will not help it to achieve its desired result in the forthcoming presidential election.

“BATOC23 believes that the party, at this time, needs a strong personality with a lot of experience, who can bring the nation together.

“What is urgently required is for the party to present a candidate with pedigree and clout to salvage the country. The zone needs to field a candidate with the capability to ruthlessly tackle insecurity, unemployment, poverty and other worrisome conditions that plague Nigeria and Nigerians.

“We need someone that will bring succour and joy to every home and for this to happen, South West has to put its house in order to occupy this position in 2023 and if we don’t get it right internally, resolving all crises from within, it may spell doom for our zone in particular and the party in general.”

It’s a wrong motive, wrong move — PLO

But in its reaction, the PLO convener, Dr Ajulo, however, described the meeting as a wrong move.

Ajulo said: “The attention of the Progressive Lawyers for Osinbajo, PLO, has been drawn to a proposed meeting by some leaders of the APC in South West for the APC presidential aspirants of South West extraction slated to hold today, at State House, Marina, Lagos.

“We want to commend this initiative which we believe was borne out of our earlier call on the Yoruba leaders to hold a strategic conference to provide direction towards the fate of the South West in the coming presidential election.

“While it is our utmost desire that such an important meeting be conveyed to establish a consensus harmony among the aspirants of the APC in South West, we want to state clearly that it should be designed appropriately to promote fairness.

“This scheduled meeting should have been a welcome development but for the following configurations which were not rightfully designed.

“The composition of personality invited for this meeting is a testament to our position that the meeting is a sectional affair of the APC and clearly not in the interest of the southwest and Nigeria.

“The Choice of Venue: Lagos Flag House in Marina, Lagos belongs to Lagos State and associates. This venue should not play host to such a meeting if it will be adjudged to be credible and fair. The meeting, if it is for the collective good of the people, should be held at neutral locations like Ibadan, Oyo State or Akure, Ondo State.”

Faulting what it described as an unclear agenda of the meeting, Ajulo said: “We can state for a fact that the motive of this meeting is inexplicit and undefined to many of the invited aspirants as most of them were never engaged. How the meeting is conveyed like a secret proceeding shows that the conveners have no defined agenda productive enough to be for the benefit of all.

“Information at our disposal has it that a communiqué has already been prepared, and in favour of a particular aspirant. This document is currently in circulation among some of the invitees.

“The above-stated positions have lent credence to the incredibility of the proposed meeting as well as the unreliability of same as a compass for the Southwest in the 2023 presidential election.

“We want to reiterate in clear terms that our recent call was directed at notable, respected and apolitical Yoruba leaders, who are genuinely interested in the development of the South West and Nigeria; leaders who patriotically and tenaciously hold on to the history and heritage of Yorubaland and the upliftment of the masses against inordinate personal gains.

“It is undoubted and without gainsaying that the meeting as conveyed with a prewritten communiqué without the inclusion of notable statesmen on the list of invitees is premeditated and planned to serve a purpose which will not be beneficial to the southwest and Nigeria.”

What is the sense in bringing a South West aspirants meeting to marina, anyway their plan is dead on arrival, if anyone should step down it should be Tinubu, because all odds are against him.

I keep seeing Tinubu urchins saying Tinubu their god and saviour is a master planner even when the odds are clearly against him,but they'll still find a way to give themselves false hope...
The way Tinubu will be disgraced will even shock his urchins, since the old man doesn't want to retire honourably, even his stolen funds won't be able to save him from the disgrace!

What odds are against Tinubu ? Other than Buhari and his inner cabal circle not supporting BAT, do you know the goodwill and support he enjoys from his fellow politicians across the country that Osinbajo can only dream of?

Some of you do not realise that politicians think differently to normal Nigerians. Majority know that Osinbajo did not seek to be a politician. Tinubu made him one.

When you pit both men against each other it is obvious who delegates will support without hesitation. I.e the candidate who has always 'sorted' them, has been in the trenches with them for decades, can be trusted 100%, has been a kingmaker to many, understands what being a political leader is about, etc, etc.

If you think Nigerian politicians vote their fellow politicians for the same reasons you do then goodluck to you. APC primaries will shock some of you. Suffice to say , as a powerful example, Atiku had no political position when he defeated Senate President Saraki, Tambuwal etal to get the PDP ticket last time.

Minus Buhari intervening directly, and if delegates are not bullied or arm-twisted, BAT will win.

Not at all. The SW attempt to clinch the 2023 Presidency was always predicated on a strong and united campaign by Yorubas long before any candidate declared.

They have talked about this and worked on it for years because it is a pivotal idea. The Yorubas know why they need the Presidency. To lose it to infighting and the divisive antics of non-Yorubas, no need to mention names, would be regrettable.

This meeting was convened by wise SW patriots. The sort who created the DAWN agenda for the region. You people should try and see the big picture and overarching idea sometimes to appreciate that issues are not simplistically about people you like or dislike.

Who are his fellow politicians whose massive support he has? Fashola? Aregbesola? Lai Mohammed?
Tinubu got it wrong from the beginning especially when Buhari was sick and was not projected to survive it. He started scheming his presidency desperately and this became sickening to the likes of Osinbajo, Fashola etc. who thought it would be callous to play politics with the life of a bed-ridden president. Tinubu and his cronnies eg Lawal the grass cutter fell out of favour with the Presidency after PMB's return and that was how he lost out of the entire scheme. He ended his own political ambition with greed.

Tinubu lost before the game even began, hence his desperation for south west aspirants to step down for him

Osinbajo, fayemi, amosun won't attend his useless meeting

The fools overating tinubu that he scripted all the people declaring can now see how wrong they are

yorubas have already lost by dymstifying tinubu

Tinubu aura hinges on having the glory of the south west to himself alone, since his people have cut him to size like every other candidate

His advantage is gone, he would go to convention with the same fate as everyone giving buhari more impetus to the series of impetus over him

Same buhari that explores consesus as first choice, same buhari that can get 90% of the current aspirant to go by his direction leaving the lone ranger tilumbu without option

Tinubu would have be the best candidate among them all, Osinbajo is a good man but he's weak because the north would want to use him and frightening him out of the seat with their terror act the same way they did to Ebele, unlike Tinubu he will not bow down to anybody because he's a Jagaban, so therefore if Nigeria really want to liberate from the North exploitation they should go for Tinubu, Peter Obi did nothing in his state when he was a governor, and the state are still in comatose right now.

Best of luck to Nigerians.
