Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has reacted to speculations that President Muhammadu Buhari and former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu had a pact on the 2023 presidency.
The circulation of the claim dates back to the months before the 2015 general elections.
A source hinted that after Tinubu was dropped as All Progressives Congress (APC) vice presidential candidate to douse opposition to a Muslim-Muslim ticket, a deal on 2023 was agreed with Buhari.
Nigeria’s Southern states and the incumbent People’s Democratic Party (PDP) then accused the APC of an Islamization agenda.
Power brokers rallied, calmed Tinubu and conceded the selection of Buhari’s running mate to him.
Former Lagos Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Yemi Osinbajo was picked ahead of Ekiti Governor, Kayode Fayemi.
Before the 2019 polls, the President was said to have re-assured the Jagaban of Borgu of the ticket.
