SAN FRANCISCO, December 05, (THEWILL) – One of the national leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has ruled out leaving the governing party for another, stressing that he remains committed to the “ideas that fuelled” the creation of the party despite mistakes that have been made.

This is coming amid speculations that the ace politician is in talks with other political heavyweights to float a mega party next year. He was alleged to have supported the candidate of another political party in the recently-held Ondo governorship election.

But in a message posted on his personal Twitter account, the former Lagos governor maintained that he had devoted his life to the party and that the national purpose of APC is bigger than the desire of any individual.

He wrote, “I have devoted my political life to achieving what has been achieved. My heart is too much of the people and my mind too fixed on establishing a positive historic legacy… rather than engage in destructive pettiness.

“This government, APC, is for the betterment of the people and the national purpose is bigger and more important than any individual's desires.

“This is a party I laboured with others to build. We would not abandon it for another. Millions of Nigerians who voted are watching and praying.

“In our journey to national betterment, plans and policies will be made, then amended. Mistakes will occur and then corrected…

“I, Asiwaju will remain true to the progressive ideals that fueled the creation of APC.”
