The leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reiterated second time, to inform who cares to listen that there is no automatic ticket for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
He said this in Akure on his private visit to Chief Reuben Fasoranti on Wednesday in the Ondo State capital.
While speaking on the move by some APC governors to give automatic ticket to President Muhammad Bulgari for second term in 2019, Tinubu said â€œwe have not heard about that and the party spokesman has not said thatâ€ .
â€œNo governor can appropriate the power of endorsement to themselves.
According to himâ€Buhari is a believer in process,the Buhari I know believes in rule of law.We wanted him even before the last convention and primaries of the party and Akeredolu is here standing with me,he was not the governor then.
â€œHe was one of the leading delegates that voted properly and Buhari was a clear winner.
â€œWe follow all the constitutional provision and an individual opinion does not matter at this stage
The former governor said Buhari would want a normal process, saying â€Buhari that I know, who says he will lose at any convention?
However, he said if the National body, the National Executive Committee(NEC)party members endorsed him as our single candidate, we will not be violating the Independent National Electoral Commission((INEC) regulations.
Tinubu added that members would not also violate the APC constitution, saying â€œwhat you are hearing is just a campaign
According to him, Buhari has not excluded anybody, and affect the ambition of any individual.
