Why I Resigned As Tinubu’s Deputy – Bucknor-Akerele [Video]
A former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Senator Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele, has said she resigned from her appointment over irreconcilable differences with Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Naija News reports that Senator Bucknor-Akerele was Deputy to the APC Presidential candidate from May 1999 till November 2003.
Speaking in a recent interview with Alaroye magazine, the former deputy governor alleged that his former principal terrorized her while they worked together.
Bucknor-Akerele also alleged that Tinubu has different behaviours and fought her with charm, stressing that her mother told her to quit her position.
She said: “He has different behaviours. In fact (he fought me) with charms and all.
“So later, Awishe Savage called me and advised me to resign.
“My mother also called me and reminded me that I am her only child, and she is aged. She asked me to resign.”
Speaking further, Bucknor-Akeredele said she fell out with Tinubu when she went against an attempt by the APC flagbearer to take over the Alliance for Democracy (AD).
‘Snatch It And Run With It’ – Tinubu Tells Team Members How To Acquire Power At All Cost
A video showing when the APC presidential candidate was educating his team on how to acquire power at all costs has emerged online.
Naija News reports that Tinubu alongside his team members appeared at the Chatham House in London, the United Kingdom on Monday.
The former Governor of Lagos State spoke on issues concerning the 2023 election, economy, and security.
After the event, Tinubu and his team also had the opportunity to unwind from their stress at a private dinner where he educated them on political power.
According to the APC flagbearer, political power is not served in a restaurant or ala carte and a person must be determined to get it at all costs.
He noted that if taking over political power will involve fighting for it, an individual should snatch it, grab it and run with it.
