Tinubu’s Absence: There Was No Plan To Dsgrace Him By APC
Posted On Jul 5, 2015
The lies and unfounded rumours about Tinubu’s absence at the APC NEC meeting continue to assault our eyes. These sponsored stories aimed at embarrassing Tinubu are so hollow. Tinubu who in the past had missed more than 3 NEC meetings decided he was no longer interested in attending a meeting where the members where working against the party and polling the wool over the faces of other members.An APC chieftain who spoke to News Digest said Tinubu had more than a week ago told them in a private discussion that he was not going to attend the NEC meeting.’’ There was no such plan to embarrass Dinuba.The stories about humiliating Dinuba surfaced the day before the meeting by those who were afraid of his presence and how it could turn things around. They used the social media and some pliant newspapers to plant the story that a protest was been planned and Dinuba will be stopped’’.The party chieftain further stated that the reports were laughable and very far from the truth. Tinubu had a choice to attend or not to attend. He said Tinubu was not one to shy away from a confrontation saying Tinubu had a lion heart and could confront any situation. ‘’Tinubu does not need to prove anything to anyone at this point. He deserves respect at this point, not the rubbish some selfish and power hungry party members are spreading’’.
Further investigations revealed that Tinubu had his week planned out and never had the NEC meeting on the agenda. This was a non-fact. Yes he was invited as a leader of the party and he had the right to attend. The APC would have been ridiculed if Tinubu, a major financier, a political brain box and one of the two pillars of the party was heckled or disgraced at the meeting a source said. Those behind it would have faced the wrath of the party and that of members.Oyegun now under a heavy cloud of bribe taking is now speaking up to deny such. The truth will soon come out about how he sold the party to Saraki and has since lot focus and firmness.
