Buhari deceived the North using the toga of Islam ,formation of another mega party, indication of the insincerity of the political class – Junaid Mohammed


Second Republic member of the House of Representatives, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, yesterday, slammed the moves towards the formation of another mega party as another indication of the insincerity of the political class.
He said President Muhammadu Buhari deceived the North using the toga of Islam, even as he dismissed the PDP as a party in death throes.
This is coming after speculations about Tinubu’s exit from the APC heightened following penultimate Saturday’s governorship election in Ondo State which was won by Chief Rotimi Akeredolu, the candidate backed by the mainstream of the party, led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu had called for the cancellation of the primaries that produced Akeredolu as the candidate of the party on the claim that his emergence was fraught with irregularities.
His call was, however, cavalierly snubbed by the national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, leading to a blistering attack by Tinubu on Odigie-Oyegun.
However,responding through a series of tweets yesterday, Tinubu said he would not “engage in destructive pettiness.” “In our journey to national betterment, plans and policies will be made, then amended. Mistakes will occur and then corrected,” the former Lagos State governor said.
“ Through it all, I, Asiwaju, will remain true to the progressive ideals that fuelled the creation of APC. “I have devoted my political life to achieve what has been achieved. My heart is too much of the people, and my mind too fixed on establishing positive historic legacy… rather than engage in destructive pettiness. “This government, APC, is for the betterment of the people and the national purpose is bigger and more important than any individual’s desires.”
