Politics: Dasuki reveals how he knelt before Tinubu, Akande

Trending report as the erstwhile National Security Adviser, NSA, to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) has disclosed how he knelt before ex-governors of Osun and Lagos State, Bisi Akande and Bola Tinubu, to accept President Muhammadu Buhari as the joint Presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, in 2011.

Dasuki’s campaign for Buhari in 2011 was contained in the new book, ‘An Encounter with the Spymaster’, written by a Public Relations professional, Yushau Shuaib.
In the book, Shuaib said: “The major shocker for me in his (Dasuki) narratives was his campaign for Buhari to emerge the joint candidate for the ACN and CPC in 2011.”
 “Dasuki stated that he knelt down begging ‘Baba Bisi Akande’ who was the then chairman of the ACN that, ‘Buhari is a man to be trusted’.
“In their believe that Yorubas and South Westerners are never religious fanatics especially regarding politics, Dasuki and his group suggested that Tinubu should be a running mate to Buhari.
“When other elements opposed that preposition, Tinubu’s team, therefore recommended a Buhari-Osinbajo ticket.”

Shuaib said the Buhari-Osinbajo ticket then failed to stick as Tunde Bakare was eventually brought forward.
