Former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has claimed that he rejected an alleged offer of President Goodluck Jonathan to serve as his Vice President in an Interim National Government.
Tinubu made this known in a statement by his media office on yesterday, 12th March claiming that his refusal of the offer has made President Jonathan search for alternative ways to take him out either by killing him or getting him arrested, based on trumped up charges.
The former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu added that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had never been this unsettled in its 16 years in power. 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 APC National Leader has caused President Jonathan’s team countless headaches this campaign season. His declining the interim government offer is just the latest.” he added.
