The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of inviting him to serve as Vice President in a proposed Interim National Government.

Tinubu stated that his refusal of Jonathan’s offer was the reason for the recent attacks on his person.

The APC leader stated this via a statement released by his media office on Thursday, March 12.

The statement reads:

“From what can be gathered through informed sources, the PDP and Jonathan Presidency had recently tried to fracture the APC by offering Tinubu the position of vice President in an interim government if he would agree to part company with the popular Buhari.”

“Once Tinubu rebuffed the offer to participate in the interim scheme, the presidency decided to change tactics. It would no longer try to entice Tinubu with sugar but would now move to silence and if necessary neutralize him.”

“The APC National leader has caused President Jonathan’s team countless headaches this campaign season, his declining the interim government offer is just the latest.”

Jonathan has been accused of plotting an Interim National Government in a bid to hold on to power.
