Bola Tinubu Prepares for Presidential Run, Dumps PDP, Mega Party Alliance


APC leader, Bola Tinubu has dumped talks with PDP to form a mega party in preparation for the 2019 Presidency.

Sources close to Tinubu were quoted as saying he is putting together a team, preparatory for the race and has developed an elaborative strategic plan to make a bold bid for Aso Rock.

“Asiwaju would actually prefer that the president recovers and returns hale and hearty, but he does not seek a second term.

“But even if Buhari decides to seek a second term, Asiwaju’s mind is made up, as he will contest for the post in the APC under any circumstances.

“He is tired of being a kingmaker and has decided that he will contest under any prevailing circumstances.”

The report says he has also penciled down three names as possible running mates, a source close to the APC leader disclosed.

They are Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State due to name recognition and political considerations; Senator Abu Ibrahim who represents Buhari’s Katsina South Senatorial District, to placate the president’s people and power bloc; and possibly the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, his well-known political associate and an expert on economic reforms that could prove very useful to a Tinubu presidency.
