Tinubu’s Ordeal at APC NEC…
It wasn’t just Governor Nasir El-rufai, who allegedly “kicked” Tinubu out of APC NEC on Thursday, it was a conspiracy of the governors, spearheaded by their northern colleagues.
Sadly, one of Tinubu’s governors was allegedly fingered in the plot, a development believed could exacerbate their current feud.
What happened? Tinubu had arrived early for the meeting, with a seat assigned to him since his name was on it.
However, when NUMBER ONE came, he stood to welcome and usher him in but before he could return, the equation had changed.
The governors went to the national chair and told him to stop him from returning to the meeting else they would do it themselves and that could be bad for him.
To avoid embarrassing the national leader, the chairman prevailed on him not to return and the governors had their way.
The plot was allegedly conceived, because of the issue of direct primary, which they believed was mooted and pushed by Tinubu and which of course could end the career of some of them.
Certainly, the last is yet to be heard or seen as far as this development is concerned. However, it is important to state that El-rufai has never liked Tinubu and would do everything to decimate or neutralise him. So, if he was said to have led the revolution against him, it was understandable.
