Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC National leader has hinted at the possibility of President Buhari spending a single tenure in office. He discussed this while expressing concerns over the wave of defections by members of the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Tinubu who spoke to newsmen betrayed his political body language and showed concerns about the defections from the opposition party to the ruling party.
Tinubu also mentioned that the influx of the PDP members “will crumble the APC, especially, if the President (Buhari) decides to do just a term”.
The President Buhari I know, has very good intentions for Nigeria, and he would want to handover to someone he deems not to be corrupt. It is even possible that the President already has a successor in mind. And the danger is this; at the fullness of time, these PDP defectors, will form an unholy alliance with some politicians in APC and across the board, to thwart the President’s succession plan. And that will be the end of the APC, and a new rising for the PDP.
I’m not elated about the news of former senators and even serving ones, defecting to the APC. Even if a governor from the opposition defects today, I will not celebrate it. I think the President should be leery and extremely cautious of these PDP defectors, and should not give them any serious responsibilities. Because at the appropriate time, they will manifest great evil and disaster against the President and the APC.
However, he also congratulated Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state, on his reelection for another four years and commended Chief Timipre Sylva of the APC for putting up a gallant fight.
