Buhari and Tinubu

Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), has disclosed the reason why he was happy when former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged as the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer.

President Buhari discussed this during a special prayer session at the Ansar-Ud-Deen Central Mosque, Wuse 2, Abuja, organised as part of events marking the 60th birthday of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

The President, represented by Chief of Staff, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, on the occassion, noted, in his remarks, that Buhari stood for a free and fair process, which, was the reason why he was happy when Tinubu emerged as the presidential candidate of the ruling APC in such a process.

Prof. Gambari also said the President wanted to assure Nigerians that he did not have any intention to subvert the constitution to extend his tenure in office.

On his part, Tinubu praised the speaker for using his position to enhance good governance and prayed for him that God will bless him with good health to work for the development of Nigeria. He added:

“It is a complex country that you have to navigate through. May Allah, in His infinite mercy, give us the stability, the peace to govern; the love that we share for one another, the patriotism that will make us proud of our country.”

In his remarks, Gbajabiamila expressed gratitude to the President for his kind words and for delegating his Chief of Staff to attend the prayer session.He said:

“Let me, first of all, start by appreciating the President through the CoS.

Let me also appreciate my benefactor. Many believe that wherever you find yourself, all power belongs to Allah. But Allah doesn’t come down to give you power, He guides and directs you. In doing so, He directed me to Asiwaju, He did it to me, and not just me, He did it to others too. May the Almighty Allah continue to give you (Tinubu) that very uncommon capacity.”
