Tinubu can only leave APC when this happens – APC

A leader of the All Progressives Congress, Mohammed Lawal, has said Bola Tinubu cannot quit the ruling party.

Malam Lawal was part of the campaign directors that brought President Buhari to power in 2015.

Lawal, who is a board member in NNPC, said Tinubu had benefitted hugely from the Buhari government.

According to Lawal, “Tinubu is not complaining and he has benefitted from this government.

“People are complaining on behalf of Tinubu in order to drive a wedge between him and the President.

“Tinubu has said he has no plan to form any mega party.

“Even the Chairman of the PDP’s Board of Trustees has said he hasn’t spoken to Tinubu in over three years.

“For God’s sake, people should leave the man alone.

“Tinubu is going nowhere.

“He and Buhari are like Siamese twins and no one can separate them politically.

“Tinubu will only leave the APC if the President leaves the APC.”

Lawal also said President Buhari was doing everything possible to take the country out of recession.

He urged the Emir of Kano and former Central Bank Governor, Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II, not to meddle in politics.

“The emir has free access to the President and his economic team.

“He is no longer the CBN governor but now holds a respected traditional position.

“He should not soil his turban. Such outbursts should not emanate from an emir.”

Lawal also hailed the performance of the acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr Ibrahim Magu.

He urged the Senate to quickly confirm Magu’s appointment and stop playing politics.

“So, refusing to confirm him is childish. The man is incorruptible. I doubt if the Senate can find anyone better.

“Magu is fighting thieves and looters, so if you have nothing to hide, why should you frustrate his confirmation?”
