The impudent behaviour of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who threw tantrums at President Muhammadu Buhari may be punished by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the National Chairman has said.


Sen. Abduallahi Adamu said in Abuja on Saturday that the scathing remarks by Tinubu outburst was unbecoming of a leader of his stature.

He said the party found Tinubu’s latest attack on the president insulting.

“We are saddened by what we saw in the video and pray we don’t see such again. I, as Chairman of this party, have a duty to stand by Mr President.

“Tinubu went as far as saying how Gen. Muhammadu Buhari went to him, citing instances of even prostrating in tears begging him to endorse him and to support him for the presidency. He claimed Buhari went to him.

“His utterances are very very insulting. It’s very very unbecoming for a person of that standing to do what he did to the sitting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the President produced by the votes of the APC.

“Though the President says he belongs to everybody. It is amazing how a fellow APC person would make that kind of comment in that kind of circumstances about the President.

“We take exception to this. It has shown that he does not show any appreciable level of respect for the office of Mr President.

“Therefore we want to make it public that we are saddened by what we saw in the video, in that reportàge and we condemn it in the strongest of terms.

“We do hope that he would never say that kind of again, particularly of the APC extraction to make such kinds of comments,” Adamu said.

Persecondnews had reported that Tinubu while addressing party delegates in Abeokuta, Ogun capital on Thursday claimed that without him, Buhari would not have become President in 2015.

He also narrated the circumstances that led to the emergence of Prof.Yemi Osinbajo as the vice-president, saying Buhari had offered him the running mate ticket, but some party chieftains opposed it.

On the punitive measures likely to be taken against Tinubu, Adamu said a decision on him has not been taken by the party.

“If there is a need to punish any member of a party, not just Tinubu, we will bring it to the party’s book. But we are watching.”
