Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will not abandon the ruling party, which he laboured to build.
Tinubu said irrespective of mistakes that have been made, he remains committed to the “ideas that fuelled” the creation of the party.
He said he had devoted his life to the party, pointing out that the national purpose of APC is bigger than the desire of any individual.
Tinubu said this on his personal Twitter account.
“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,” he wrote.
“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…
“Achievements will be had and replicated. Through it all, I, Asiwaju will remain true to the progressive ideals that fueled the creation of APC.”
The statement is coming after reports that the strategic politician has been involved in talks to float a mega party.
