The All Progressive Congress(APC) Presidential Candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Wednesday evening took his political plight to Yoruba traditional rulers, appealing to them to discourage President Muhammad Buhari from possible scuttle of forthcoming general elections.
Penpushing reports that Tinubu made the passionate appeal when he met Ogun State traditional rulers at June 12 Cultural Centre,  Kuto, Abeokuta,asking them to raise a common protest to Buhari to prevent the forthcoming elections from being scuttled through socio-economic malfeasance.
“The current scarcity of fuel and paucity of money in circulation, in a consumer economy, are ominous of destabilisation of the forthcoming elections”, Tinubu lamented.
Penpushing further reports that the leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC), addressing a close-door meeting of traditional rulers, chiefs and religious leaders  said since he obtained God’s and people’s consent for his desires through the now popular “emi lokan” slogan, he has found it necessary to return to Abeokuta to seek the intervention of traditional rulers and religious leaders, to protect the sanctity of the elections processes.
The Presidential Candidate of All Progressives Congress(APC) was accompanied by his runningmate, Senator Ibrahim Shetima, Prince Dapo Abiodun  Governor of Ogun State who also is seeking second term and other party loyalists including former Governors of Ogun State  Akinrogun Olusegun Osoba and Otunba Gbenga Daniel , former Chairman of the Party, Adam Oshiomole, former Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt Hon Dimeji Bankole, Ogun and Lagos States Deputy Governors, Noimot Salako-Oyedele and Prince Kadiri Obafemi Hamzat respectively, among others
