The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos state, Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the book launch of Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state said his group took advantage of the cracks in the governor’s forum. He said saw an advantage in the schism in the relationship between Amaechi and President Jonathan to woo Amaechi to his side.
He said the crisis in the governor’s forum which pitched Amaechi’s led 19 members faction against the Jonah Jang 16members faction who had the support of President Jonathan was all they needed to penetrate the PDP.
According to Tinubu ‘governor Amaechi and most of the governors thought of a different Arithmetic Algebra without derivative. Thirty six minus sixteen is equal to X and if X is greater than 16, suggest the answer and if you can’t you have failed democratic Arithmetic. Amaechi resisted it and we joined Amaechi in the resistance. Of course, how can a leader educate and be responsible for the future of our citizens if he cannot do a division of sum total of a number, 36. We are glad today that we decided and we got rid of that leadership through ‘General’ Amaechi.
Tinubu added that ‘Rotimi will go on from here to continue to serve Nigeria in key positions. He will not be alone. He will share the company of many change agents and professionals who have cast their lots with the new political order under the leadership of the president-elect Muhammadu Buhari. He also said that the APC change agenda is anchored on the three Rs- Reform, Relief and Recovery. It is the tripod upon which Nigeria must operate in order to unleash her potential.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
