Patriotic Northern Coalition for Justice, Peace and Equity has called on the leadership of the All Progressive Congress, APC, to watch out for some politicians and elements within the party plotting to undermine the party’s chieftain and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The National Coordinator of the coalition, Alhaji Babangida Sule Jnr told newsmen in Kaduna yesterday that Tinubu is the bedrock of APC and still commands great respect in his region and in the party, adding that any plot against his interest will be counter-productive.
He said the North is still grateful to Tinubu for his contributions towards Buhari’s victory and that the coalition will do all it can to stop anyone or group planning against him in the APC.
“Politicians are already strategizing for 2019 and they will stop at nothing to achieve their aim. Some of them are in APC and we have uncovered that part of their aim is to undermine the party’s chieftain, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, because they see him as a stumbling block. But we the patriotic Northern coalition won’t allow them because we are still grateful to Tinubu for what he has done for the North in the 2015 general elections, particularly his efforts in the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari. We know that many people played crucial roles in the emergence of Buhari, but Tinubu tops them all. Personally, I know of the many times he came to Kaduna to meet with Buhari and assure him that he will do all he can to support him and ensure his victory.
Alhaji Sule also decried the moves by some people to form a caucus in APC just like what happened in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, then where some people formed the New PDP. He said such calculation was totally wrong and will not augur well for the party.
He called on the APC and its leadership not to underrate the PDP too soon, saying that they are still a strong political force which can cause them upset if they are not very careful.
He urged everyone irrespective of party affiliation, tribe, religion and class to join hands with President Buhari so that he can transform the nation and deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
