Tinubu Not Happy With Buhari, Oshiomhole, Drops APC Flag

Former Lagos State Governor and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, was visibly angry and threw away the APC flag.

This happened at the Ogun State presidential rally of the All Progressives Congress on yesterday.

Tinubu was seen throwing the APC flag beside him away.
He was also seen rushing to where the President was seated to discuss with him.

Tinubu was also seen leaving the stage in annoyance while the President was delivering his very short message to the people of the State.

It was learnt that the anger was caused by the embarrassment of the party by Governor Ibikunle Amosun’s loyalists.

During the rally, President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, and other APC leaders were booed and stoned.

Sources within the APC told reporters that Tinubu had earlier warned Oshiomhole and Buhari against a similar occurrence.

The sources said that unlike campaigns in other states in South West where Tinubu was involved, he was just a guest at the Ogun rally.

Some of the sources alleged that Tinubu was lobbied to attend the rally.

It will be recalled that APC in the state is divided.
While the Governor Ibikunle Amosun wants Adekunle Akinlade of the APM to succeed him, the APC is fielding Mr Dapo Abiodun.

The trouble started at the rally when the APC National Chairman mentioned the name of the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Mr Dapo Abiodun, while addressing the crowd.

Neither was Oshiomole able to perform the traditional handing over of the party flag to Abiodun nor was Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo able to give detailed speeches.
