Bamgbose blasts Tinubu, says N50m donation to Buhari’s State won’t buy you APC ticket
National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance, Olusegun Bamgbose said the 50 million naira National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu donated to victims of inferno at the Katsina Central Market will not get him the APC ticket.
Bamgbose stated this during a chat with DAILY POST, adding that the donation from Tinubu is politically childish, hypocritical and disappointing.
He questioned the rational behind the action of the former Lagos State governor flying to Katsina State to pay the victims a sympathy visit but never had time to visit Oyo State or even the Ijesha market in Lagos State.
Bamgbose added that “pleasing the North is not the secret of becoming the President of Nigeria, it is rather pleasing of the masses.”
“He had time to fly to Katsina State to pay the victims a sympathy visit but never had time to visit Oyo State or even the Ijesha market in Lagos State.
“He possibly must have donated the N50m and personally visited Katsina State to impress or appease Buhari who is from Katsina State, this is politically childish and inappropriate.
“This act of charity won’t do much in view of the fact that people already know his reasons for such Greek gift. Let him however be informed that his donations won’t make him a favorite when it comes to APC primaries come 2023.
“APC will still deny him ticket. MKO Abiola did more than him yet National Party of Nigeria, NPN never had a plan to give him ticket. Pleasing the North is not the secret of becoming the President of Nigeria, it is rather pleasing of the masses.
“His donations can’t change the mindset of the party. Let him forget about his Presidential ambition, it’s a mere dream that may not come to pass. Nigeria is looking forward to a leader that is forthright, firm and frank come 2023,” he said.
