National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has said he will not quit the ruling party, contrary to reports that he is starting a new political party.
There had been reports that the former governor of Lagos State, Atiku Abubakar and factional chairman, Ahmed Makarfi were planning to form a new party.
But in a series of tweets on Monday, Tinubu said he would remain true to the progressives ideals and cannot leave the party he helped started.
“In our journey to national betterment,plans and policies will be made,then ammended. Mistakes will occur and then corrected, achievements will be had & replicated. Through it all, I, Asiwaju will remain true to the progressive ideals that fueled 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 a positive historic legacy, rather than engage in destructive pettiness.
“This government, APC, is for the betterment of the people & the national purpose is bigger and more important than any individual’s desires.
“This is a party I labored with others to build.We would not abandon it for another. Millions of Nigerians who voted are watching and praying.”
