The National leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) has admitted to using his moral authority, skills as a veteran politician, and dedication to campaigning to influence the general elections.
He made this known through his spokesman, Tunde Rahman, after he was accused by a Political group of planning to influence the governorship rerun election in Sokoto state.
In his own word:
“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 will 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.”
