The National leader for APC ‘Bola Ahmed Tinubu’ on the occasion of the book launch ‘Against the Run of Play’, a book by Olusegun Adeniyi.
According to him, he is writing a book which will be published soon where he will reveal how he removed the incumbent president Jonathan and put in Buhari.
The former Lagos State Governor was represented by his media aide, Tunde Rahman at the event.
“Some have said that they will tell their story, Asiwaju is also working on his own book to tell his account of what transpired.
“To tell how he was able to mold the APC to the extent that it was able to unseat an incumbent president for the first time in the history of our contemporary politics,” he said.
Tinubu also clarified his statements in Adeniyi’s book on how he lost the vice presidency.
“The account of what transpired as told by Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the book and as presented in some newspapers is not about him losing the vice-presidency and the eventual vice-president emerging, as the reviewer has put it,” he said.
“Asiwaju spoke in greater context in that book, and when people are making comments, they should speak with the context in which he spoke. If they are saying that Asiwaju lost the vice-presidency and that a vice-president emerged, where did he emerge from? Who nominated the vice-president?
“I’d like to say that even the vice-president has said on some occasions that a certain political leader from the southwest nominated him for the job and we all know who that is.
“That nomination has been a very good choice from all the wonderful things the vice-president has been doing.”
