EKO HOT BLOG reports that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has claimed that he worked hard to secure the ticket.
He claims that there was a ‘gang up’ conspired against him prior to the party’s presidential primary.
Tinubu said this after returning to Lagos State for the first time after defeating ex-Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, and others to become the ruling party’s nominee for next year’s election.
At the palace of Oba of Lagos, Alayeluwa Rilwan Akiolu, Tinubu said: “No Lagos indigene has had the opportunity to become President of Nigeria despite the contribution of the State to the national stability and progress.
The highest position attained by any Lagosian in national leadership is the position of Chief Judge of the Federation.
“I took up the fight to break this jinx. The battle to secure the APC ticket was hard. When I was almost fed up, I resorted to prayers. I also poured out my mind when I felt there was a gang up against my person. Thank God that I have brought home the presidential ticket.”
