Tinubu: “APC will win again in 2019”

All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu  has declared emphatically, that his party will win the 2019 Presidential elections.

Speaking to journalists shortly after another meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in the company of Chief Bisi Akande, the former Lagos Governor stated:

“My commitment is to this party. We have a better chance and we are strongly determined to prosecute election in a most transparent and democratic manner and we will win.”

He also enjoined former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former military president Gen. Ibrahim Babangida to retire and “allow us to move our country forward”.

Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande, the former interim chairman of the APC, met with President Buhari at the Aso Villa one and a half hours after the President’s meeting with another former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar.

Responding to a question on the statements made by Obasanjo and Babangida, Tinubu said: ”I don’t address those shadows. We should let our former presidents join retirees’ club and take pensions but they can participate in our politics if they are interested.

“It is a free world but this freedom is not served a la carte. They should allow us to move our country forward. It is a challenge to every Nigerian.”

Tinubu, who is the head of a presidential panel to reconcile APC leaders and unit the party,  told reporters that he felt “greatly honoured” being offered the job.

.He said: “I feel greatly honoured with the mutual confidence that the President has reposed in me, which is a very strong political challenge. We have started in earnest.

“He has given me a free hand to put cohesion, confidence and trust in the party. Democracy is about conflict resolution process. You can’t do it without resolving conflicts”
