I made a big sacrifice to ensure APC’s victory in 2015 election – Tinubu

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has revealed that he made a big sacrifice in ensuring that the party did well in the last general elections.
Tinubu made this disclosure in Lagos on Monday at the 70th birthday anniversary of National Democratic Coalition, NDC chieftain, Prof. Segun Gbadegesin.

The former Lagos State governor observed that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ruled the country for 16 years because opposition parties failed to unite.

He recalled that in 2011, his then party, the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN; Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, and the All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, presented separate presidential candidates and the PDP leveraged on the small size of the parties to win.

He stated that leaders of the legacy parties (ACN, CPC and ANPP) that formed the APC, including himself, ahead of the 2015 election, had to put aside their personal ambitions so as to “chase away the PDP government led by former President Goodluck Jonathan, because in the past those who float political parties end up as its chairman and presidential candidate.”

Tinubu further assured that the confidence Nigerians reposed on the APC before the elections would not be dashed.
