A former Chief of Army Staff, His Excellency, Ambassador Tukur Yusufu Buratai has waded into the controversy that some elements in the Presidential Villa are against the presidential ambition of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed.
Buratai made the statement on his verified Facebook page, saying that even if there are some people planning against the presidential ambition of Tinubu, they are definitely not in the Presidential Villa.
General TY Buratai who is also the Garkuwan Keffi explained further, “These are times of high political activities that give rise to tension and suspicions within and without political parties. This calls for restraint, understanding and calm in all political utterances. Party unity and trust must be the watchword.
“Those really against the emergence of the APC Presidential Candidate are not in the Villa but are forces both internal and external. It was initiated externally and being orchestrated or being clandestinely pursued in collaboration with some unsuspecting internal elements.’
“There should be total trust on the APC administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to deliver the next administration under APC government. There should be party unity to forge a common front to maintain the lead in the current campaign mobilisation of Nigerians in order to win all the elections, especially the Presidential election on 25 February 2023,” he said.
He also stated that, ‘’The APC under President Muhammadu Buhari has already worked hard for the nation and has rescued the country from being a failed state in 2015. Therefore, irrespective of fuel scarcity, currency colouring or scheming against Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC will win the 2023 elections by the Grace of God”.
