APC would not be in power without Tinubu - Buhari

30 March 2016, 07:33

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has attributed the success of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the vision of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, national leader of the party.

According to a Naij report, the statement was made during a recorded tribute presented at the 8th Bola Tinubu Colloquium, held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja on Tuesday.

During the event, Buhari revealed that Tinubu was behind the merger of Nigeria's man opposition parties in 2013, adding that without this vision the party would not have been formed and would not be as successful as it is currently.

If Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not participate, there wouldn’t have been a merger and there wouldn’t have been an APC government at the centre. That is absolutely clear.

“He should thank God that he has gone through so much and has remained relevant, that he is healthy and young.

“There are very few patriots, alive or departed, who can match the commitment, resilience and creativity that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has, over the past few decades, demonstrated in organising Nigeria’s public life for good.

“As he adds another year today, my best wishes and prayers go out to a man who deserves a lot of commendation for what he continues to stand for,” he said.
