Tinubu to Atiku: You can meet in Dubai or jungle, APC not jittery
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu said his ruling All Progressives Congress is not jittery that presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is holding strategy meetings in Dubai ahead of the 2019 elections.
Tinubu, the national leader of APC, spoke with State House correspondents on Wednesday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said his meeting with the President was about the nation, Nigerians, peace, stability and economic progress.
He expressed the conviction that Nigerians would not want to return to the deplorable state into which the PDP plunged the country.
“We don’t fear, whether he (Atiku) is meeting in the jungle, in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi.
“People are free to meet and strategise in any way they felt, 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 strategise from anywhere, but a leopard cannot change its skin,” he added.
Tinubu also faulted the calls by some party chiefs including state governors for the removal of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
When asked if he was in support of the call for Oshiomhole’s removal, the former Lagos State Governor said, “No! We all have to respect party supremacy”.
