Unity Forum Advises Tinubu Against Allowing Ajimobi To Tarnish His Image
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu
All Progressives Congress (APC)
Open Letter to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu
Our attention has been drawn to the report in many online media about the purported intervention of your good self, the National Leader of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the crisis trailing the ward congress of the APC in Oyo State to the effect that you threatened to leave the party if our victory at the congress is sustained by the national secretariat of the party.
We are constrained to respond to such purported intervention, allegedly being sponsored by top officials of Oyo State government in the media, because of the threat it poses to our party.
You will recall that it was due to your intervention in 2015 when the elders of the party declined to support the second term ambition of the governor that we agreed to support the governor for a second term.
This was after assurances and personal guarantees by your good self and Chief Bisi Akande that the Governor would turn a new leaf in the second term.
Unfortunately, the situation has gotten from bad to worse such that if we go into a general election conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) today, the party will meet its Waterloo.
As our leader, you will also recall that you are the one that championed the need for party congress and convention to elect
