Atiku: How I Saved Tinubu’s Political Career by ijustdey: 4:51pm On Jun 09
Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has said without his support to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his political career could have ended as the governor of Lagos State.

He said this while reacting to the widely held position that the President Tinubu came to his rescue following his spat with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, leading to his contesting the Presidential Election on the platform of Action Congress (AC) in 2007.

In a statement through his Media Adviser, Mr Paul Ibe, said, “Vice President Kashim Shettima goofed when he claimed that former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar benefited from President Bola Tinubu’s goodwill when he was being “persecuted” in the PDP.

Truth be told, it was Tinubu that actually benefited immensely from Atiku’s goodwill. But for Atiku’s support, hinged on his pro-democracy instincts and rule of law, Tinubu’s tenure as governor of Lagos would have been rough with a wide possibility of termination of his political career.”

Explaining the true situation of things, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate in the last election said, “For some time, and especially leading up to the 2023 election, there has been a deliberate attempt to distort the history of the politics of the early 4th Republic by ascribing the AC, the political platform that Atiku ran in 2007 as Tinubu’s party.

“Nothing can be further from the truth. Vice President Shettima, obviously carried away with the euphoria of the unveiling of his official residence as Vice President, repeated the same lie.

“Shettima needs to be reminded that Atiku did not run under the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), but Action Congress (AC). AC came out of a coalition of ACD (Advance Congress of Democrats), formed by mainly PDM members and other associates and Tinubu’s faction of AD.”

According to him President Tinubu was not in a position to lend the platform to Atiku “as erroneously being suggested, as he (Atiku) was nominated by all the delegates from all the states.”

He then went further to name the delegates to the primaries of the election that threw up the former Vice President as the party’s presidential candidate to include Atiku Abubakar himself, Lawal Keita, Amb. Yahaya Kwande, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo, Alexis Anielo, Titi Ajanaku, former Governor Rasheed Ladoja, Chief Tom Ikimi, and Chief Dapo Sarumi.

Others he said were Chief Sergeant Awuse, Alh. Lawan, Dr. Chris Ngige, Prof Ango Abdulahi, Dr Farouk Abdul Azeez, Chief Audu Ogbeh, Chief Ejiofor Onyia, and Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, among others.

He added that from Tinubu’s Alliance for Democracy were Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief Segun Osoba, Chief Adebayo Adefarati, and Chief Bisi Akande, among others.

Tinubu, together with his co-travelers, thrives on lies, falsehood, and propaganda.

That was how they told and sold the lie that Tinubu built Lagos from scratch.

Who is Atiku when it comes to Lagos Politics

Obasanjo did all he could to grab Lagos from Asiwaju, but damn it that guy never lost any political war, Atiku wasn't even in Obasanjo's good book as of that time. So he had little or no influence in that scenario abeg.

Let's hear word. Na here we dey!

Dedeity:
Tinubu the calamity
You can say that again. My love for Nigeria is indescribable but I'm sad with what I'm seeing today. The majority of those tribalists here on NL have not done half of what I had done for my people in donations through my partners in Lagos alone. I don't have to mention one. Unfortunately, this generation of youths are so glued to sentiments which always inform their weird decisions 99% of the time, which would later haunt them in life. Presently I'm in America for another batch of donations to the less privileged in the society, especially in Lagos where I belong. There's one of our partners who is into sports, grooming young Nigerians across tribal lines on how they'd find their place at the global stage , through scholarships and all.

But I chose not to support this man called Tinubu for a lot of reasons. Those living here, who used to be his supporters are so disappointed right now but I told them last year during my visit that it's not enough to rely on propaganda. They need to come and see things themselves at home. Had either fashola, ambode or even osinbajo contested, I'd have supported him with my might and main. The moment I realised this man wanted to get there both by hook and crook, I decided to back off and then I suddenly became an omo ale to the tribal bigots who share in his fake ideology...Tinubu knows the number of his children, wondering how I can be an omo ale by not supporting him. Democracy is a choice but not in Nigeria.

Yoruba would say, ęję ka tibi ishana kiye soogun(which literally means, we should observe the efficacy of a charm by just imagining how the matches ignite, when you strike it) . You said you're Mr magic who built Lagos yet you lost in same Lagos. The 2023 election ought to have been a means of reciprocating your kind gesture in Lagos if you truly deserved our votes. Instead, you started intimidating people with your thugs cos they didnt vote you. Some myopic minds said he lost in lagos cos of the Muslim Muslim ticket however, in alimosho, the largest local government in Nigeria by population and where yorubas constitute over 95% of the population whom are both Muslims and Christian massively voted a non-lagosian was a proof he's not what he's claiming to be..

When they realised that the muslim-muslim ticket they claimed didn't hold water, they now said its ibo votes that made him lose lagos. It's ibo votes but yorubas won the LP seats in Lagos where ibos live...imagine how myopic they are in thinking. 2023 is just a tip of the iceberg. I pray we all witness 2027 in peace. I reserve my comment on Northern votes for the apc.

Lol 😀. Atiku couldn't save the political careers of Dariye, Alams, Ibori, etc who stood by him against OBJ during the 2003 PDP primaries but the only person whose career he could save is AD Governor Tinubu. Ridiculous!
