Tinubu Never Made me President – Buhari Blasts Tinubu

It’s maybe unsurprising that on the eve of the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer primary, there are individuals vying for office who want to be associated with the President ‘s election seven years ago.

Many people played major and minor roles in his historic election in 2015, when he became the first opposition candidate to unseat an incumbent president in a peaceful transfer of power at the ballot box.

There are those who recommended President Obama to run again; those who decided to create a political party – the APC – that may finally be the political vehicle capable of delivering success where all other opposition parties and alliances had failed.

Those decisions may have been agreed upon by a few. But they were delivered by thousands and voted for by tens of millions. No one can or should claim to have made the possible.

Yet as important as that moment was, it is not what should decide the next general election.

What matters is the future: the policy platforms, the ideas, the drive, and the determination to take over the President’s stewardship of our country and build upon his legacy to make our country better than it has ever been.

The person most demonstrable in those qualities is the one to lead our party and our country forward.
