The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has no moral justification to ask President Muhammadu Buhari not to re-contest the presidency in 2019.

Tinubu spoke Sunday night at the National Convention of the party in Abuja.

He described Obasanjo as” a busy body,” saying that he was not a member of the APC nor any other political party having torn his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) membership card publicly.

Obasanjo had in January, asked President Buhari not to seek re-election in the forthcoming 2019 presidential election.

“This man has the temerity of writing a letter.

“What is your business, busy body? Unfortunately, he has torn the card of his party, so he does not have one anymore,”Tinubu noted.

He added that he was happy to be in the APC and not listening to those who advised him against associating with President Buhari.

He thanked Buhari for his tenacity and commitment to fight corruption in the country and for working hard to develop the country.

According to him, the President Buhari-led APC has adhered more to the tenets of internal democracy more than any government in the past.

This, he said, was shown at the party’s just-concluded National Convention.

“We thank you that you have offered yourself to re-contest the presidency in 2019, you must run, and you will win,” he said.

“We have changed leaders of our party: not at gun point, ask Audu Ogbeh. Thank God we have been able to stop looting and abuse of power,” Tinubu said.

The former Lagos State Governor thanked Gov. Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, who is also the Chairman APC National Convention Planning Committee for the success recorded.

“Badaru, you have delivered, in spite of negative prediction that we will never see this day and that our party will fall apart,” he said.

Tinubu thanked the committee members for the show of dedication and commitment and for ensuring a successful national convention.

He also thanked Adams Oshiomhole, the new national chairman of the APC, saying that:” you are a true reflection of the saying that no matter how short a man is, he will see the sky.”

He, however, asked members of the new National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC not to abuse the trust reposed in them.

He assured that he would join other party leaders to support the NWC to enable it succeed on its mandate to move the party forward. (NAN)
