Buhari Vs Tinubu: This Singular Decision Buhari Just Took May Break Their Friendship

With the recent power tussle and impending collapse of the All Progressives Congress, it appears everything is happening so fast that Nigerians are even finding it difficult to keep up with the developments.

The ruling from all indications is heading for a crisis tipping point which should it get to that point, the party might as well kiss its retention of power in 2023 good bye even from now.

One of such development is that which happened earlier this Wednesday afternoon.

Apparently wanting to stick to what the law says as he has always been known to do, President threw his weight behind the Victor Giadom-led faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The President approved the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting which was summoned by the Court recognizing Giadom as the National Chairman and also says he will be in attendance at the meeting.

The President made this known through a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Garba Shehu

Part of the statement read read, “The President has received very convincing advice on the position of the law as far as the situation in the party is concerned and has determined that the law is on the side of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman.

” Because he will always act in accordance with the law, the President will be attending the virtual meeting Giadom called for tomorrow afternoon. ”

This is most definitely  big blow to the Ajimobi led National Working Committee. Recall that Ajimobi had been promptly announced by the party leadership loyal to Tinubu as the acting National Chairman immediately the Appeal Court upheld Oshiomole’s suspension as the National Chairman.

Buhari’s decision to throw his weight behind Giadom most definitely will not be a pleasant one for Tinubu and from all indications, this may just be the end of the beginning because upon these two men literally lies the weight of the party and once both men are in disagreement, then its almost obvious what to expect.

Fingers crossed. We wait to see how this crisis in the ruling party will play out.

We eagerly and prayerfully await the death of APC which has destroyed Nigeria .Once this happens , curses will rest upon those , who directly or indirectly , helped that terrorist organisation into office . A special curse and damnation will be reserved for Tinubu ,who knew the Fulani will destroy Nigeria as contained in his confidential letter to the Americans in 2003 and yet ,went ahead to go into alliance with them and which has resulted in the mass killings all over Nigeria ; this because they agreed to help him to the office of president .

How can Ajimobi be the chairman, when he is in isolation center. Tinubu should thank Buhari for allowing him to be working around the street freely, otherwise by now he should have been in Jail for corruption related offences.
