Tinubu visits Amaechi, Bello, Akpabio

All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu continued his repair work within the party on Friday with visits to some former presidential hopefuls in the just-concluded primary elections. Mr. Tinubu visited the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, and the former Governors of Rivers and Akwa-Ibom States, Rotimi Amaechi, and Godswill Akpabio. All were presidential hopefuls of the party. During Tuesday’s primary elections, Akpabio resigned from the former Lagos state governor, who ultimately won the election with 1,271 votes. Amaechi got 316 votes and the Kogi state governor got 47 votes. Mr. Tinubu was accompanied by the Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Governor Umar Gantuve of Kano, Bello Matawella of Zamfara, and Adams Oshiomhole, former Governor of Edo State. While welcoming the team, Bello said he would donate his campaign office to Tinubu. “Today, I have collapsed my Presidential Campaign Organization. I am donating my campaign organizing secretariat to them,” he said. In his reaction, Tinubu described Bello as his son. He also praised President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the necessary level playing field. “The man of the convention, the man of democracy for that day is Muhammadu Buhari. He said, ‘if you want to run, run; you want to crawl, crawl; you want to dance, dance,” he said.

There will always be anger and disagreement. A loss of unity is a loss of hope. We have had a fruitful discussion. We have decided to work together,” said Tinubu. The same trip was also made to Mr. Akpabio’s house. Akpabio was the first to withdraw from the race and backed the eventual winner.
