Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State says if the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) he would have been given the party’s presidential ticket.
Mohammed, who is also a PDP presidential aspirant, claimed that despite being interested, he had tremendous admiration for Tinubu.
Speaking as a guest on AriseTV, Mohammed lauded and commended Tinubu for the formation of the APC and stated that if not for his meticulous efforts, Buhari would not have become President.
He said, “I was lucky I met Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, (vice president) Osinbajo; we discussed, he (Tinubu) called me consensus.
“I told him (Tinubu), if you were in PDP, we would have given you the (presidential) ticket because we know that without you, (Muhammadu) Buhari wouldn’t have been the president.
“In PDP, we recognise contribution. We have people in Nigeria that we must recognise and it was definitely a good outing for me.”
