Rumour of the defection of one of the strongest founders of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu surfaced a few minutes after the Jagaban was caught on video tossing the flag of the party to the national chairman of the party in Ogun State.
But the party’s National Leader said, contrary to the insinuations being peddled in some quarters, that he remains in the party and has no plans to leave it for any other, reported the Vanguad.
A video where Asiwaju Tinubu, at the APC Presidential Campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun State, was seen throwing the party’s flag to National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole to give to the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Prince Dapo Abiodun, was being framed by opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to mean that he was throwing away the party’s flag.
In a statement by his Special Adviser, Media, Tunde Rahman, the APC leader denied throwing away the party’s flag as being insinuated by PDP.
The statement reads: “If you want to fault Asiwaju for anything in this matter, your critique can only be limited to the accuracy of his toss. Any attempt to enlarge the episode beyond this is fiction and mischief writ large.
