National Leader, All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,
says the party is not about himself, General Buhari or any leader of

needs,” Tinubu said.
Tinubu condemned the posture of the government to the continued strike

out of tune with the general feelings of Nigerians. Nigeria cannot
continue to afford to lose her best brains to the diaspora,” he
