Politician Bisis Akande Reveals How EX VP Atiku Lost The Presidential Election After Rejecting Tinubu As Running Mate

Bisi Akande, a founding member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has disclosed how Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President, rejected Bola Tinubu, APC National Leader as his presidential running mate in 2007.

Akande, who was a former National Chairman of Action Congress, AC, said despite the nomination of Tinubu, Atiku opted for Ben Obi as his running mate under the party.

The Osun State-born politician who released his autobiography “My Participations”, opened up on some of the untold incidents that happened before the 2007 elections.

He disclosed that Atiku informed the party of his choice of running mate through a Kano-based politician, Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim.

According to Akande: “In 2007, we formed a party, the AC, with Abubakar Atiku. We agreed that Atiku should be our presidential candidate and we had the understanding that he would run with Bola Tinubu.

“I was the chairman of the AC. One day, after we had nominated Atiku as our presidential candidate, one young man came and gave me a form from INEC. I told him I could not sign a blank form and that I, as the Chairman, must know the name that would be filled in it.

“The young man, Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, must have been the organizing right-hand man of Atiku. The following morning, he came again with Lawan Kaita. Kaita begged me and said it was Ben Obi whom Atiku had chosen as his running mate behind our backs.

“So, I signed the form because I believed in the candidate. If I refused to sign, that would create a crisis.”

Atiku eventually lost the election to the Peoples Democratic Party’s Musa Yar’Adua.

  1. What will all this (shalayeing) do for us?

  2. Will this make Pa Buhari resign?


    1. Resign for where!
      Resignation no dey for Nigeria politicians dictionary

  3. Yorubas lost a lot with the death of Yinka Odumakin. Those who have delayed writing their versions of history are now releasing all sorts knowing there'll be no factual rejoinder.

    Baba Bisi, you are well aware of Tinubu's certificate issues which caused papa Abraham Adesanya to weep. You know Gani had a sure case against him and Osinbajo who represented him. Why didn't you document stuff like that in your book? You should have just released campaign flyers instead.

    You said Omisore is this and that. Noted and agreed. However, why did you forget to mention that he was made to step down for you by Bola Ige who wanted a stooge in you as governor of Osun state? Did you forget so soon the owner of the watch you wore on inauguration day?

    Yinka, sun un re. I'm sure even those in Bourdillon are learning how to type about how they were born in the 80s since they know you are no longer here to point out the nakedness of the emperor. I pity those who grew up in homes where history is not passed on as unbiasedly, copiously and truthfully as possible. They will take several turns around the desert and never reach the promised land.
