The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has denied growing reports that he is planning to leave the party.
I Laboured With Others To Build APC - Tinubu Quells Quit Rumours
The former Lagos state governor made the denial on Monday, December 5, via his Twitter handle.
“In our Journey to national betterment, plans and policies will be made, then amended. Mistakes will occur and then corrected... Achievements will be had & replicated. Through it all, I, Asiwaju will remain true to the progressive ideals that fueled the creation of APC,” he wrote.
“I have devoted my political life to achieve what has been achieved. My heart is too much of the people and my mind too fixed on establishing a positive historic legacy... rather than engage in destructive pettiness.
“This government, APC, is for the betterment of the people & the national purpose is bigger and more important than any individual's desires.
“This is a party I labored with others to build. We would not abandon it for another. Millions of Nigerians who voted are watching and praying,” he added.
Rumour has it that Tinubu is planning to leave the APC to start another party because he is supposedly being ill-treated in the APC.
The supposed ill-treatment has caused Governor Ayo Fayose and Femi Fani-Kayode, who are members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to speak up and criticize Tinubu’s protégés for betraying him.
