Nigeria 2019: Why Saraki, Tambuwal left APC – Tinubu

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said on Sunday that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, left the All Progressives Congress because of the party’s refusal to grant their wishes of automatic tickets for next year’s elections.

Tinubu explained that the defectors were also disappointed because the APC refused to share “national wealth and other offices and privileges.”

Tinubu said contrary to Tambuwal’s claim, the governor’s defection to the Peoples Democratic Party had nothing to with the governance of the nation.

“Governor Tambuwal’s exit can be distilled to one cause. He covets the Presidency. However, he had not the stomach to challenge President Buhari in a primary. Tambuwal felt further insulted that he would be compelled to face a direct primary just to retain the governorship nomination,” Tinubu said in a statement titled, “They go away because we go the right way,” which he personally signed.

He said Saraki, on his own, had realised that he might not even get the ticket to return to the Senate, much less become the Senate President.
