The Presidency yesterday in Abuja, said that no one could or should claim to have single-handedly engineered the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as President in the 2015 general elections.
According to a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the Presidency said the past should not decide the outcome of the next general election and that what mattered today is to elect a candidate that will make the country better than it has ever been.
The statement is titled, ‘Comment on the statement made by a leading APC flagbearer candidate.’
It was earlier reported that former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, had raised some dust last Thursday when he claimed that without him, Buhari would not have emerged the president in 2015.
The presidential aspirant made the claim at the Presidential Lodge in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, when he was addressing the APC delegates ahead of the party’s primary election.
The presidency added that as crucial as the 2015 victory was, it is not what should decide the next general election.
