Atiku,Tambuwal lead Northern politicians gang up against Tinubu

Major cracks are appearing in the All Progressives Congress (APC), as there seem to be a gang up against the former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu by notable northern politicians. 
The opposition against Tinubu is spearheaded by former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, former speaker of the House of Representatives and Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal and the former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso.                                               

Atiku Abubakar is leading some former and incumbent governors in the north who include former Governor Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko of Sokoto State, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State, Tambuwal, Kwankwaso, former Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state, to wage the new battle in the party.
They were said to have agreed among themselves to cut Tinubu to size in order to secure the party for both President Buhari and other party leaders.
A source revealed to National Daily that the leaders were consulted by some northern leaders who complained that they cannot trust Tinubu.
The northern leaders also believe that President Buhari may not contest in the 2019 election as there are rumours that he has purportedly signed an agreement with the party to have just one shot at the presidency.

The feeling among the leaders is that Tinubu strategically placed vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, to take over from Buhari in 2019. Osinbajo, was the Attorney General of Lagos state under Tinubu.
Atiku, Tambuwal and Kwankwaso are all said to be eyeing the presidency in 2019, which is why they are all undermining Tinubu’s influence in the party.

Meanwhile, Tinubu has ordered Saraki and Dogara to apologise to him via newspapers in order to pacify him.
