Presidency Plotting to Scheme Tinubu Out of APC Hierarchy - Yakasai Claims

Alhaji Tanko Yakassai
Former Governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has continued to wane in influence under the All Progressives Congress administration following an alleged bad blood with President Muhammadu Buhari. A staunch critic of President Muhammadu Buhari named Alhaji Tanko Yakassai has commented on the ongoing crack in the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the subject matter following the emergence of Rotimi Akeredolu as the gubernatorial candidate of the party in Ondo State.
Mr. Yakassai, Erstwhile adviser to former President, Shehu Shagari on National Assembly matters, reiterated that there is an 'evil scheme' in the Presidency to completely phase out a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu from the hierarchy of the ruling party.
The revelation as reported by The Tribune was made in Kano yesterday, 26th of September where he urged Tinubu to stand his ground against President Muhammadu Buhari in the advent of the discovery of discrepancies in treatment.
But insisting that Tinubu’s political travails were well-thought-out and plotted in the Presidency, Yakassai recalled that Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had asserted that the APC government has been hijacked by a cabal now in control of day-to-day affairs of running the government.

“People are inclined to believe what the Senate president has said,” the second republic politician said, adding that “from all indications, every right thinking person will figure out a sinister plot to completely scheme out Tinubu from the hierarchy of APC and I want to believe this is coming from the Presidency.”

Tinubu, had while demanding the immediate resignation of the APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, stated that: “There exists a regressive element in the party that cares nothing for the progressive ideas upon which this party was founded. They joined the APC because it was the best ride available at the time. Now they want to guide the party into the ditch. They want to turn the party into a soulless entity incapable of doing good, just like they are.”
In a widely published article yesterday, former Aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode wrote that “They are a small cabal of power-brokers who constitute the leadership of the Buhari-led CPC. These people believe that they were born to rule and that they own Nigeria. They simply used Tinubu’s old ACN as a compliant and ready piggy-back to catapult their way back to power and once they achieved that they never looked back.”
