Obasanjo Lessened Tinubu’s Ambition of Becoming The Vice President in 2015 – Says Mr. Oyinlola

A past administrative head of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has revealed how past President Olusegun Obasanjo and Senator Danjuma Goje abbreviated the goal of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to transform into the running mate to Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), who was the APC official rival in 2015.

Oyinlola explained that regardless of the way that Obasanjo was the last individual to throw his weight behind Buhari’s candidature, having confined the re-arrangement of the then President, Goodluck Jonathan, he was in the end convinced to help the past military ruler.

Meanwhile, talking further, Oyinlola explained that despite Obasanjo’s intercession, the APC would very likely have continued with the Muslim-Muslim ticket and the social affair may have felt that it was difficult to remove the public expert in power, especially when all reservations that surfaced over the proposed Muslim-Muslim ticket had been pardoned.

He added the agreement was covered by a respectable number of the get-together bosses until it surfaced after Buhari had got the ticket. By then, the tattle came out and a few of us felt hazard was drawing closer with the chance of a Muslim-Muslim ticket. To extra add to our sensations of fear, General Buhari on one occasion said there was nothing mistakenly in the Muslim-Muslim authority strategy, saying after all he addressed with Tunde Idiagbon.

That attestation made us know it (the Muslim-Muslim idea) was a reality. On two occasions, Bola (Tinubu) referred to it in my substance that they agreed. If you audit one moving video back, by then, where it was said that Buhari had disposed of what they agreed on, that is the room he was resting in when Buhari was looking for the post.


We by then told Baba (Obasanjo). We uncovered to him that taking power from a tenant government was a serious task and we ought not to give space for reason and miss the goal. We revealed to him they (Buhari and Tinubu) were pondering a Muslim-Muslim ticket. That was when Baba (Obasanjo) said people should not think little of the sensibilities of Nigerians.

He said after Obasanjo’s intervention winning with respect to changing the decision, a couple of individuals started spreading the news that Obasanjo bewildered the course of action to make Tinubu the negative behavior pattern official contender. He added, after that (Obasanjo’s intercession), they started saying it in my quality that Obasanjo disillusioned the plan to get Tinubu on the ticket for 2015 yet I by and large went about like I didn’t hear them. We by then had an accessories meeting where the issue of the running mate was talked about once more.

Despite Obasanjo’s information, Oyinlola said a past authoritative head of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje, also exhorted against the Muslim-Muslim ticket, especially considering the way that the social event required all the votes it could get from different bits of the country.

He added, At the social event, ex-lead agent Goje, rose and said in the northern part, there is an irrelevant number of Christians. He said the APC would require each vote to upstage the officeholder, so nobody should play with the chance of a Muslim-Muslim ticket and everybody concurred. I think it was even Bola (Tinubu) that prescribed that the issue should be taken before specific pioneers decide. Regardless, we didn’t see anything like that again.
