Segun Showunmi, a former spokesman for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, has claimed that Muhammadu Buhari wouldn’t have been president without the support of Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He stated this while speaking in an interview with Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Showunmi stated that without the help of Tinubu Buhari wouldn’t have defeated former President Goodluck Jonathan and former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, in the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.
“The APC did not win the PDP in 2015 because of the party in itself; they won in 2015 and 2019 because of the support of former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu,” he said.
Speaking further, the PDP chieftain Buhari would not be the headache of the opposition party in the 2023 election.
According to him, Tinubu and Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello should be the “headache” of his party.
He said, “There are only two people in the APC that give PDP a headache. I’m worried about Governor Yahaya Bello because of some of the footprints I see him doing, he is young, and can connect to the right audience and I’m worried about Bola Ahmed Tinubu because I know the huge political infrastructure he has.”
