The governor of Bauchi, Bala Mohammed, claims that if Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential hopeful, was a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would be given the presidential ticket in 2023.
Mohammed stated this on Sunday during an appearance on Arise TV’s ThisDay Live.
According to the governor, he attended the iftar to prove that he is a product of consensus.
“And I was lucky I met Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, we discussed, he was calling me consensus and I told him that: ‘if you were in PDP we would have just given you the ticket because we knew that without you Buhari wouldn’t have been a president’ and so in PDP we recognise contributions.
“We have some people in Nigeria that we must recognise and it was definitely a good outing for me yesterday. The First Lady is a unifier. She has shown that she is a mother of the nation and all the presidential aspirants not only in PDP, APC but all the other parties were there. It was an opportunity to show that I’m really a product of consensus or closing rank irrespective of party differences.”
