Bola Ahmed Tinubu, an All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, says vice president Yemi Osinbajo hesitated to answer the call to be president Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate.
The two term former governor of Lagos state made this disclosure in a book written by the Chairman of Thisday Editorial Board, Olusegun Adeniyi titled ”Against the Run of Play”.
Tinubu explained that Osinbajo was hesitant and asked him (Tinubu) to go and intimate the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
”I replied by telling him that he needed to inform Pastor Adeboye himself, after all, there had been times when if we needed to see Pastor Adeboye, he was the one who facilitated it.”
”I (Tinubu) reminded him (Osinbajo) that since the final choice was not for me to make, I should not go to Pastor Adeboye until after the announcement of his name,”Tinubu disclosed.
The former governor of Lagos state explained further that when Osinbajo finally decided to meet Pastor Adeboye, Adeboye reportedly told him that ”if they offer you, take it”.
According to Thisday, the said book will be launched in Lagos tomorrow (Friday).
