The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has said that he had a hand in President Goodluck Jonathan’s election into office in 2011.

Tinubu stated this on Saturday, March 14, during an Ndigbo APC governorship rally at the Onikan Stadium in Lagos.

“In 2011, I helped Jonathan become President because he made us believe he was a breath of fresh air,” Tinubu reportedly said.

“I didn't say because he was from Bayelsa that I would not help him. We voted for him because he promised to make our lives better. But now, he has failed us,” he added.

Tinubu was the leader of the now defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in 2011 and his statement appears to confirm suspicions that he supported Jonathan against his party’s candidate, Nuhu Ribadu.
