“You don’t bring the roof down” Tinubu Tells APC’s NWC
The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has warned against any plot to destroy the party from within and endanger the chances of President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Tinubu was speaking after the APC NWC cancelled the Lagos State Primary election after incumbent Akinwunmi Ambode.
Tinubu has now warned the NWC to not endanger the chances of the President chances next year.
He said: “You don’t bring the roof down. You don’t bring the house down. Safeguard the foundation. The exercise you have witnessed today is a prelude; it is good for the general election of the party.
“It is good for Buhari’s endorsement to continue. 1.9 million votes. You don’t see this type of crowd. If the summation today is less than that, there will be disappointment.
“Look at that in the larger picture. If this house that accommodates all of us; we are facing one way. We are supporting the president. If they are changing, I have to abide by that. I have no choice.”
