2023: There’s No Agreement To Make Tinubu President After Buhari -Yerima


A former governor of Zamfara State, Ahmed Yerima, has revealed that there is no agreement between the All Progressives Congress APC and Tinubu to make him president of the country after the tenure of current President, Muhammadu Buhari.

Yerima who is also a presidential aspirant in the APC disclosed this to news correspondents on Friday.

Recall that in a recent viral clip, Tinubu had commented that he had helped some political leaders reach the position they’re in and now is his time to take over the position of Presidency.

However, Yerima said there was no record that such an agreement was entered into with the party.

He said, “ There is no ‘gentleman agreement’. At that time, who was the chairman of the party? Initially, we had Chief Bisi Akande and later, we had John Oyegun and today we have Senator Abdullahi Adamu, we had [Mai Mala] Buni along the process and so on.

“So, was it Chief Bisi Akande that sat down with some people? Any decision taken outside of the structure of the party is not recognised. The party has a National Working Committee, the party also has what we call NEC and there is the overall decision-making body which is the Convention.

The party APC has fixed its national convention for 6th June in Abuja where it will elect its presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.
