Lagos APC Primary: Tinubu Warns As Sanwo-Olu Is Declared Winner
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has warned against any plot to destroy the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Tinubu was speaking on Tuesday, as his endorsed candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu was declared the winner of the Lagos governorship primaries, apparently against the wishes of the National Working Committee (NWC).
However, Tinubu has spoken against jeopardising President Muhammadu Buhari’s chances of winning the next year presidential election.
He said: “You don’t bring the roof down. You don’t bring the house down. Safeguard the foundation. The exercise you have witnessed today is a prelude; it is good for the general election of the party.
“It is good for Buhari’s endorsement to continue. 1.9 million votes. You don’t see this type of crowd. If the summation today is less than that, there will be a disappointment.
“Look at that in the larger picture. If this house that accommodates all of us; we are facing one way. We are supporting the president. If they are changing, I have to abide by that. I have no choice.”
