Bola Tinubu: GEJ offered me interim govt’s VP to dump APC

The National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and President Goodluck Jonathan reportedly offered him the post of the vice president in a purportedly planned interim national Government (ING), for him to part ways with the APC.

According to the statement, “From what can be gathered through informed sources, the PDP and Jonathan presidency had recently tried to fracture the APC by offering Tinubu the position of vice president in an interim government if he would agree to part company with the popular Buhari. Once Tinubu rebuffed the offer to participate in the interim scheme, the presidency decided to change tactics. It would no longer try to entice Tinubu with sugar, but would now move to silence and, if necessary, neutralise him.”
The statement further read that “The person they blame the most is Tinubu, the major actor who is seen as the strategic mind of the new party and one person who must be stopped at all cost.The agenda to tackle Tinubu and weaken his political influence nationwide and to undermine his leadership in South Western politics can be said to have gone into overdrive.
“The first part of the strategy is to dredge previously discredited claims of illicit wealth in hopes of silencing Tinubu or lessening his public image.However, they fear this public relations attack may be too soft, as Tinubu has been taken before the ICPC and the case against him dismissed. If this attack does not deter his party activities, the presidency and PDP are prepared to take more drastic action if they believe it necessary to win the election by throwing the APC into disarray.
“This part of the plot has two options, the first of which is to employ trained snipers to attack Tinubu or assassinate him outrightly. This plan is consistent with the warning made by former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo in his now famous 2014 letter to President Jonathan. Those within the PDP favouring this approach argue that when Chief Bola Ige, a powerful politician, was murdered, heavens did not fall, though the then president was a Yoruba man.
“The second option more crafty. The PDP will seek to resuscitate the case of the murder of Funso Williams, a former Lagos gubernatorial candidate, by blaming Tinubu for the killing. They are already coaching inmates and others. They are offering them the promise of early release and money if they will make statements implicating Tinubu in the Williams murder. The presidency intends to rush through this process with the hope of putting Tinubu out of circulation by trapping him in a contrived criminal process until the elections are over.
“Tinubu is not taking these revelations lightly, knowing well the capacity of this government for devilish acts. For the party that boasts it will rule Nigeria for 60 years, it has become an unexpected season of political desperation. The PDP is worried that on March 28, they will discover that they have fallen 44 years short of their dynastic goal. By all accounts, this has caused them to consider very drastic plots and schemes. Nigerians are confronted with a ruling party willing to descend to the lowest in order to win elections. Perceived political enemies are being hunted. Trumped-up allegations are being manufactured daily from the government factory of lies to taint the leading figures in the APC”.
But in a swift reaction, Fani-Kayode said “These allegations are baseless and false. These people have become prisoners of their own delusion and they have become victims of their horrific and terrifying hallucination. We are not in the least bit interested in the formation of an interim government and we are even less interested in participating in any contraption in which Bola Tinubu would play any role.”
