Saraki will not allow Tinubu “create a wrong, false and mischievous impression about his defection”

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has reacted to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s claims that he does not “have the stomach” to contest against President Buhari hence his defection to the opposition PDP.

Saraki, on Monday, shared a Facebook post stating that he will not allow the APC leader create a wrong impression about his decision to leave the ruling party.

He went ahead to state that even Tinubu had consistently expressed worry and displeasure at President Buhari’s administration but was ready to stick it as long as it would fulfil his own presidential ambition in 2023.

Saraki wrote, “…he (Tinubu) expressed a strong opinion that he would rather ‘support a Buhari on the hospital stretcher’ to get a second term because in 2023, power will shift to the south-west”.

“It is clear that while my own decision is based on protecting the collective national interest, Tinubu will rather live with the identified inadequacies of the government for the sake of fulfilling and preserving his presidential ambition in 2023. This new position of Tinubu has only demonstrated inconsistency — particularly when one reviews his antecedents over the years”, he added.

Nigerians are reacting to Saraki’s revelation and they are disgusted by the Asiwaju’s hypocrisy
