Former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential aspirant has said it is his turn to be president of Nigeria.
Tinubu who spoke to APC delegates in Abeokuta, Ogun State yesterday, made it clear that without his support, President Muhammadu Buhari would not have become president of Nigeria in 2015.
He noted that Buhari had contested several times and lost until he supported him.
“If not for me that led the war front, Buhari won’t have emerged. He contested first, second and third times, but lost. He even said on television that he won’t contest again,” Tinubu said.
“But I went to his home in Kaduna, I told him you would run. This is not a matter of tears. I will stand with you and you will win but you won’t joke with the matters of the Yorubas.
“Since he has emerged I have not been appointed Minister. I didn’t get nor request a contract. This time, it’s Yoruba’s turn and in Yorubaland, it’s my turn.”
