National leader and presidential aspirant of  All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday, narrated how he has been supporting different politicians to achieve their political ambitions with an appeal to Ogun Delegates to pay him back with their votes at APC national delegates convention in Abuja.

Tinubu admonished party delegates  against turning the forthcoming national convention of the party to a "family affairs" while voting to pick the flag bearer of the party for the year 2023 presidential election saying,no other person deserved to be voted for than himself.

While addressing party delegates at the Presidential  Lodge Ibara, Abeokuta in the state capital,  Tinubu declared that the delegates should not sacrifice sound judgment at the alter of family affairs when voting at thee party's convention, stressing that it is time for him to reap the benefits of his own labour and sacrifices at building a formidable political party.

The APC national leader recalled that he had supported several Nigerian politicians to actualize their political ambition, citing President Muhammadu Buhari as one of such he has supported.

Noting that the likes of  Nuhu Ribadu and Atiku Abubakar when they were being hounded by their former political parties, he provided political platform for many to run for the office of the president.

Yes,President Buhari had once asked me to be his Vice president.He said that, after using two Ibo men who were Christians as Vice presidents and Pastor Tunde  Bakare a Yoruba man but failed ,if he brought Pope from Rome he will also fail hence,he wanted me,(Tinubu) to be his Vice but I said no to him, inorder to stabilize the Party.

Explaining further, Tinubu said that he did not regrettee  sacrificing the opportunity offered him to become a vice to President Buhari during the build up to the year 2015 presidential election, but declined the offer to enable him stabilize APC, particularly towards ensuring that the newcomers from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) were fully accommodated within the APC.

"It is now over 25 years that I have been worshipping these political sons and daughters. If Governor Dapo Abiodun seated here will be faithful to his God, I want to emphatically state that he couldn't have become the governor without me. Even President Buhari wouldn't have won that presidential election in 2015 after three unsuccessful attempts without my support".

He declared that,it would  not be out of place for him to expect that he should reap the benefits of supporting others in the past.

"Since President Buhari assumed office, I have not accepted any ministerial or Ambassadorial position. But now, it is my turn. My protection for these political sons and daughters is enough. I don't want to be part of a sad political history in Nigeria. I am here to solicit for your votes. May God not turn you from being delegates to delicates. Don't make it a family affairs o" Tinubu concluded..

Responding,the State Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun said delegates from the state would do the right to produce the presidential candidate of the party.

Stressing further, Abiodun noted that Ogun is capable of identifying quality leaders, assured that, Ogun APC delegates would do the right thing during the primary election.

While lauding the APC National Leader for his passion for the growth of the southwest and the nation in general, Abiodun said “this time is an interesting period in the history of the nation which calls for all hands to be on deck”.

He described Tinubu as a master strategist, political warrior, mentor of men, builder of bridges and a serial winner.
