‘President Buhari, Bola Tinubu Are My Fathers,’ Says Ali Ndume
Immediate past Senate Leader, Senator Ali Ndume, has said that while his support for President Muhammadu Buhari is 100 per cent, he has political mentor in the person of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Ndume said this in an exclusive interview with The Punch.
According to him, President Buhari is what the country needs, and as long as Buhari is strong and healthy, then Nigerian needs no other person apart from him in 2019.
“For us in the North-East and in Borno State in particular, we are morally bound to support Buhari because without him, the insurgents would have wiped us off,” Ndume said.
Ndume added that he has no political godfathers but ,”I have political mentors in the persons of Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.”
Speaking on alleged sideline of Tinubu by the Buhari-led administration, Ndume said: “Asiwaju (Tinubu), the Jagaban, cannot be ignored by anybody in this government because he played a major role in the emergence of President Buhari and he remained a formidable leader of the APC.”
