National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has revealed his tools for influencing elections in Nigeria.
Tinubu, a political veteran and two-term former Lagos State Governor is regarded as one of Nigeria’s most astute politician.
The former Senator in his reaction to an allegation by the Sokoto State PDP coalition of supporters revealed the things he does to make elections favourable for his party.
The group said Tinubu, alongside National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole and Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari met with INEC Chairman, Yakubu Mahmood to swing the election in the APC’s favour.
In a statement released by Tinubu’s Spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, he said;
“These allegations by a contrived PDP organ are desperate untruths without a basis in fact. But they are entirely in line with the delusional reactions of PDP to their loss in the presidential elections,” Tinubu said.
“A prominent member of that panel, Prof Attahiru Jega later became the INEC Chairman and was able to implement the far-reaching reforms that have enabled us to have the free and fair elections that we witnessed in 2015 and now in 2019.
“If I were such a prominent supporter of electoral reforms, why wilI I now be among those trying to subvert democracy?
“My only tools for influencing elections are my moral authority, my skills as a veteran politician, and dedication to campaigning and mobilising my own party members.”
