Aisha Buhari on Wednesday revealed that APC Chieftain, Bola Tinubu sacrificed his presidential aspirations so that her husband, Muhammadu Buhari, could run for president.

She made the revelation during the 14th edition of the Lagos Central senatorial district town-hall meeting tagged, Treading the path to prosperity, Vanguard reports.

“My husband, General Muhammadu Buhari has been contesting presidential elections for over a decade now, but this particular election is unique because our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu jettisoned his personal interest for the sake of Nigeria,” she said.
Tinubu was also present during the meeting, as the event was also served as a an occasion to launch of a book penned by him, entitled Stewardship Report: A collection of Town Hall Speeches (2011-2014).
Speaking on the forthcoming elections, he said:

“In my life, I have never seen an incumbent President that is afraid of elections and PVCs before. Upon all the money the donor agencies contributed to the development of this new technology called PVC that will eliminate rigging, this government is running away from the elections.

This is a month of clean hands, and you must go to your constituencies, wash your hands as if you are fighting Ebola virus, everybody should wash their hands because of the fingerprints. You must carry methylated spirits to clean your hands before voting. The PDP is afraid, and it is because they don’t have people.”

    Realistically, Ashiwaju and GEJ are the same. It is the matter of picking your poison. Buhari is a better choice out of the three. Good job in informing voters about handwashing prior to voting. Lets hope ppl will get to excercise their right, because GEJ et al are desperate to have a kangroo interim govt. Lets wait and see.

    #laughing in Isoko……sacrificed ko, scurrified ni…first of all, who will vote for Tinubu? And if you say he sacrificed for your husband, at what cost? Did he “sacrifice” for free? What has he been promised if Buhari should win the election. Please, stop painting brother Tinubu like a saint who cares for Nigeria abeg. Tinubu only cares about his pockets.

      @Beeeeee Omoni, whorvu aro, I also laugh in Isoko! E be like say Tinubu don begin give this woman sontin sniff. What beats me is how a supposedly “upright’ Buhari can run in d same circle with the likes of Tinubu. Buhari is desperate and wants to be a civilian President by fire by force. Unfortunately, this is one lifelong dream that ain’t gonna happen. The man is too old and clueless. Yes, clueless. Being a military hd. of state and a civilian President of a country like Nigeria are poles apart. Should Buhari win, the Yar Adua saga will be rehashed. While he sleeps on duty due to fatigue the likes of Tinubu, Saraki, Amaechi and Fashola – yes Fashola will violate this nation dead die. Is Jonathan the messiah? Maybe not but, l’ll rather vote Jonathan than this Ali baba and the plenty thieves. Buhari cannot claim not to know where the funding of his campaign comes from. Birds of the same propinquity…….

    “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu jettisoned his personal interest for the sake of Nigeria”…

    What a load of… but sure, ma’am, whatever you say. Let’s just continue to feast on the BS being served in this particular political menu. And pretend through gritted teeth that Tinubu has the sanctity of spirit to sacrifice any of his personal interests whatsoever (speak less of doing so for the sake of 160million+ Nigerians).

    Let’s nod our heads thoughtfully whilst the smell from this pile continues hitting our noses very fragrantly…

      Hahahahahaa Mz SA, you tried so hard to be your usual diplomatic, objective self here, but you failed. I do not blame you! It’s so difficult to be all that, when the stench of that statement stinks to the highest heavens.
      As my fellow Nigerians would say, “yeye dey smell!”

    HOW DARE YOU COMPARE GEJ WITH THAT CRIMINAL, ITS AN INSULT. GEJ MAY BE SLOW OR CLUELESS AS SOME THINK, BUT HIS VISION FOR A ONE NIGERIA HAS MAKE A CASE FOR HIS FLAWS. COMPARING HIM TO RELIGIOUS BIGOTS AND CON MEN IS UNACCEPTABLE.

      GEJ The tribal bigot or the unrepentant militant or the desperate ritualistic politician or……..I can describe your GEJ many times and believe it or not Tinubu is still better than him…….You can defame his personalities as you like but he is still better than your clueless/corrupt GEJ………..

      Oga classic, sorry o, GEJ is a lot of things but i dont get “tribal bigot” from him. I am curious to know how you came to this conclusion.

      March 19, 2015 at 7:10 pm

      You and Ada Nnewi are equally stupid. Saying Tinubu is a better option than GEJ, Just very very stupid and uninformed, its a shame. This is the kind of backwardness that has trapped Nigerians

      The same GEJ that has created so many obstacles to disrupt the elections for his favour.. The same GEJ that his spokesmen have no sense of decorum, the same GEJ that his actions and inactions are able to make Nigeria history? @stargazer, are you talking about another GEJ or the same incompetent one from Otuoke that is married to mama peace? (Her name is even a joke)… Phew!!!

    “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu jettisoned his personal interest for the sake of Nigeria”. This is the most hilarious line i’ve heard all day. Chaii! What wont election cause?

    like seriously “PDP don’t have people and carry methylated spirit before voting is this another health tactics/health safety measures or what? one million and one times I prefer PDP to APC and I also prefer Mama. peace to Mrs buhari. mama peace is fighting a good cause even if she is not “so educated”. put your self in her shoes to be sincere what would you do? because the tortoise is slow that does not mean that it’s not wise. A wise man does not take decision hastly. we all know boko haram is an apc propaganda to de stabilise Nigeria.

      The advice to “wash your hand” and “use methylated spirit” is to prevent the problem of dirt or oil/grime preventing the card reader from authenticating a voters fingerprint. It is what INEC is trying to pass on to citizens to ensure they have a better chance of being authenticated.

    For all the people making light of Tinubu’s “sacrifice”. I’ll ask how many times did Awolowo “sacrifice” for Nigeria???
    Tinubu may not have the mass appeal of Buhari but neither did Awolowo, difference being Awolow was never able to put aside his ego.

    I bet, No matter how bad it is, the lowest rank of Tinubu can never be compared to that Clueless GEJ. Haba, as if comparing Death n Sleep.

    Tinunbu is far better than the 2nd most corrupt president in the history of nigeria.tribalist mulitamt loving president.hes totally out of depth and clueless
    What happened to the missing 20 billion dollars or the missing 10 billion naira from his dieziani. Hes just afraid if going to jail cuz of thr masdive abachalike looting he has done. He and his cohorts are going to jail

    therea no escsping.he has bled nigeria dry. Buhari has a good record. Tinubu turned lagos state into a mega state.that people from other territoroes are moving en masse from their villages to lagos for the greener pasture. If lagos has been like other underdeveloped state. No one will bother.rhe change has come
    the dawn of a new era.nigeria is going to flourish and grow again
    The stench and decay from jonathan govt is going to be over.Arise o lord and deliver nigeria from jonathan his thiefs.his pastors witches amd the likes oF him
    Nigeria will rise again
    We will be desirable again. But first kick the decay called jonathan
    it took him 3 weeks to start performing as a president and commander in chief. what happened since. He was busy looting and cavortin with diezaini n his likea.it is well.buhari the lord has elevated yOu.

      I AM JUST WONDERING IF JONATHAN IS A TRIBALIST, HOW WILL YOU DESCRIBE THE MAN WHO ORDERED THE KILLINGS OF NYSC MEMBERS WHICH WE ALL KNOW THAT MOST OF THE ONES SERVING IN THE NORTH ARE NOT NORTHENERS BY MAKING THE MOST EGOSTIC, AGGRESSIVE AND TRIBALIST COMMENT EVER THEREBY CAUSING THEIR DEATH AND HELPING TO SET UP THE SECT ‘ BOKO HARAM INDIRECTLY OR DIRECTLY SEF WHICH HAS BEEN SEEN TO BE MORE OF A RELIGION AND TRIBALIST WAR TO DESTABILISE THE COUNTRY?
      BTW, I AM NOT A FAN OF BOTH APC OR PDP, I JUST WISH THERE IS A STRONG PARTY WITH A GOOD NEUTRAL CANDIDATE.

    Madam,
    It is bad enough that your husband has to team up with Tinubu for the opposition to be strong enough to take on PDP. Do not damage your hubby’s brand or what is left of it by associating with Tinubu.
