Abe insisted that Tinubu’s remarks in Ogun State, about his contributions to Buhari’s emergence as President and to success of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was a statement of fact,, which no one could deny.
Abe, in a statement by his spokesperson, Parry Saroh Benson, said there was nothing new or different about the statement, which had been publicly admitted by the President himself.
He further said that all other aspirants in the presidential race had often talked of their own contributions to the success of Buhari.
According to him, the Vice-President talks of his contributions and loyalty to the President; Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation, talks of his being the President’s two-time Director-General and his abandonment of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to ensure Buhari’s success among others.
Abe said: “It is no longer news to all genuine lovers of the APC, that the past seven years have witnessed all sorts of evil plots by desperate politicians to destroy the fabric of unity between President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“I appeal to all members of our great party, the APC, to disregard the innuendos aimed at painting Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in bad light as, in the minds of the plotters, there is nothing he will do that will not attract condemnation.
“Delegates should focus on their future, the future of the country and our Party, and ignore these chameleons and wolves in sheep clothing; Asiwaju we know and Asiwaju we shall follow.
“Therefore, I urge all party faithful to be firm, especially delegates and be committed to the success of our party”
Abe insisted that Tinubu remained the only one with the killer punch to deliver victory to APC in the country”.
