Nobody can claim credit for Buhari’s victory – Presidency

Garba Shehu

The Presidency yesterday in Abuja, said that no one could or should claim to have single-handedly engineered the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as president in the 2015 general elections.

According to a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the Presidency said the past should not decide the outcome of the next general election.

It was reported that former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, had raised some dust last Thursday when he claimed that without him, President Buhari would not have emerged the president in 2015.

The presidential aspirant made the claim at the Presidential Lodge in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, when he was addressing the APC delegates ahead of the party’s primary election. In its reaction, the Presidency said, it is perhaps not surprising that on the eve of the All Progressives Congress flagbearer primary, there are those running as candidates who wish to associate themselves with the President’s rise to elected office seven years ago.
