National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to heed any advised from his predecessor Chief Olusegun Obasanjo not to seek a second term in office.
 Tinubu made this known on Sunday after the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling APC was inaugurated at the Eagles Square, Abuja. Obasanjo had in a viral January 13 letter advised Buhari against seeking a second term in office as a result of alleged non-performance. But Tinubu described the former president as an “election rigger” who does not deserve to be listened to. He said, “If anybody must blame you at all; it’s over-democratisation. Those who asked me not to follow and support a General should better look at their house; it has been deserted; it is a house of frustration and migration to other parties. “I remember one Uncle backdoor, who has been a General himself and who has been elected President; I call him election rigger. “ Let us compare the two of you. The man had the temerity to write a letter, not to the post office. We said, ‘no; we are not using the post office like that anymore, we are now using email. Your letter is not delivered, you are analogue’. “If he had the temerity to say Buhari must not run again, in which party? Thank God he is not a member of our party, we hold our future in our hands. What is your business, busybody? Unfortunately, he has torn the card of his previous party, his own legacy. So, he has none anymore. “Now we have a General that they asked me not to follow. They said if you call yourself a democrat, don’t follow this man. I said I am not mad enough to listen to your lies. Thank you Muhammadu Buhari for the job you are doing up till today. “You have not set half of the records of this General who is not a democrat. He does not know the meaning of democracy. You have not tried to dismantle the National Assembly and impeach or remove a governor with six out of 38 members. You have not done criminal assault on democracy and they are writing letters. “Today, through convention, we have changed the leadership of our party, but not at gunpoint as it was done to Mr. Audu Ogbeh. “Our new elected National Chairman, our new elected national executives, to my friends the governors, to my dear citizens and members of our great party, the challenge is confronting us. We thank God that we have been able to be strong enough to stop 16 years of their looting and broken promises. There is no way we face 16 years of looting, abuse of power , denial, hunger and be able to perform within three years. “Mr. President, we thank you that you have offered yourself again, run, contest, you must.”
