The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation on Friday alleged that former Governor of Lagos State and national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, forced the party’s vice presidential candidate, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to swear to an oath to resign after six months in office, in the event the party wins the presidential election.
The PDPPCO stated that the move was part of the sinister plot by Tinubu to become the nation’s president through the back door.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the PDPPCO, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, while addressing a press conference in Abuja on Friday, said investigations have shown that Tinubu has sinister motives for the emergence of Osinbajo as the running mate of the party’s presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari.
Fani-Kayode noted that, “The wicked plot, as laid out by them, is to force Prof. Osinbajo to resign for Senator Tinubu to be nominated by General Buhari as his replacement.
“The ultimate objective of this plot is to ensure that Tinubu becomes President.
“The script is simple: given the questionable health of General Buhari, Senator Tinubu who is desperate to be president for his own selfish reasons will simply bid his time in the evil expectation that General Buhari will not be able to go the whole hog.”
He stated that the reason the alliance between the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria and the Congress for Progressive Change could not work was the refusal of Pastor Tunde Bakare to resign as vice president for Tinubu to takeover from him.
