A national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar is going nowhere come 2019.
Speaking with State House reporters after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari in the Villa on Wednesday, he said Atiku can meet anywhere to strategize, Nigerians will not vote for him.
Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos state was reacting to the meeting of Atiku in Dubai on 2019.
“We don’t fear, whether is in the jungle, or is in Dubai or is in Abu Dhabi, people are free to meet and strategize in any way they want but we are not going back to the illusion of the PDP. It is not possible, Nigerians will not do that.
“They say slow and steady wins the race; we inherited that from our forefathers and knowledgeable people. We can’t go back to the pit that we inherited for 16 years. They can strategize from anywhere but a leopard cannot change it skin,” he said.
He said he met the President to discuss “about the nation, the country, our people, peace, stability and economic progress.”
Daily Trust reports that Tinubu met with President Buhari for about 90 minutes.
