Exposed! The Aso Rock Insiders Opposed To Tinubu
Nigerian journalist, Jaafar Jaafar, Editor-in-Chief of Daily Nigerian, has identified the powerful Aso Rock insiders said to be against the emergence of All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as president.
In an interview with Sunday Punch, Jaafar named official and non-official associates of President Buhari as among the principal Aso Rock antagonists of Tinubu.
The journalist who is now based in the United Kingdom following controversies that flowed from his circulation of a video of a governor receiving dollars in bribe spoke following the interview by Governor Nasir El-Rufai of powerful Aso Rock chiefs wanting the APC to fail in the coming elections.
Asked to name those Aso Rock insiders he claimed were against Tinubu, he said:
“You see, I only talked about the key prominent voices and the power Sabiu Tunde wields, we can say that he is the major element against Tinubu’s presidency. He is on the President’s side and has so much power in the Presidency such that he can influence so many things much more than anyone else.
“I believe (Governor Nasir) El-Rufai does not want to give so much importance to a ‘small boy’. That’s why he didn’t actually mention the name. Sani Zangon Daura, he’s very close to the President also as I have said in that tweet; he influences a lot of things also, but suddenly he was seen going about campaigning for Atiku Abubakar; I think he was even in Jigawa State a couple of weeks ago to campaign for Atiku. It was so open that he is not hiding his choice.”
On why these Aso Rock insiders are opposed to Tinubu, he said:
“It is very baffling. At the initial stage, Tinubu was not their preferred candidate; they planned to impose Senator Ahmed Lawan and that plan failed. So, after the plan failed, they became aggrieved even after Tinubu emerged victorious; he didn’t get much support from them. Ahmed Lawan was their preferred candidate.”
