REVEALED!!! Fresh Shocking Facts Emerge Over Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar’s Secret Power Deals, Ahead Of 2019 Presidency

Amid subtle moves by power brokers ahead of the 2019 general elections, facts have emerged that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has failed to strike a deal with his age-long political Ally and National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, ahead of the 2019 Presidential election.

Recall, that during the 2007 general elections, when Atiku was denied the Presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, it was Tinubu who provided the former Vice President the platform of the Action Congress, AC, to run for the Presidency.

It was learnt that the duo (Atiku and Tinibu), had remained together until 2014, when the Waziri Adamawa contested for the Presidential ticket of the APC, which he lost to the incumbent President, Muhammadu Buhari.

A very close Associate of Tinubu who spoke on a condition of anonymity, stated that Tinubu had secretly refused to strike a 2019 deal with Atiku, because he believes strongly that the former Vice President would not honour a single term agreement, if allowed to take a shot at the Presidency.

Tinubu had insisted that Buhari should be allowed to finish his second term in 2023, thus putting the South-West and possibly Tinubu in a good stead to vie for the Presidency then.

The source added that Tinubu believes that if he is not going to contest in 2023, rallying the South-West to support Buhari now would put the zone in a vantage position, to get the support of the North at the expiration of the Buhari’s Presidency.

He observed that beyond politics, there had been a cold relationship in recent times between Tinubu and Atiku, because their stakes in the oil giant, Oando, have really been battered by the dwindling economic fortunes of the company.

Beside Tinubu, it was gathered that most PDP Governors are not particularly comfortable with Atiku, because they believe that he belongs to Buhari’s age bracket, which they intend to make a campaign issue in 2019.

As a result, the various caucuses, especially the most dominant one controlled by the South-South Governors, led by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, have been shopping for a younger candidate.

Besides all these, Atiku is also having issues with his close friends in the APC, who are angry that he never consulted well before leaving for the PDP.

A close friend to Atiku said the some aggrieved APC members were angry that Atiku would be left stranded in the PDP, because the opposition party’s Governors may have made up their minds to give their Presidential ticket to a younger candidate.
