Tinubu Warns: Leave APC If You Can’t Support Lawan, Gbaja as Senate President & Speaker
Newly elected APC lawmakers must tow the party line or be whipped out of the party, Bola Tinubu has said. The All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader said that party discipline would be upheld in addressing the leadership tussle of the 9th National Assembly.
Tinubu said this while speaking with journalists in Lagos on Friday after a prayer programme organised by Islamic and Christian clerics to mark his 67th birthday.
“Party discipline is key, we must be discipline in the party. We were a little careless in 2015. We created the opportunity for serpent to get into our party and that did not allow Nigeria to make the desired progress.
“You have seen the result of it and we are not going to allow that to happen again. We are going to respect our party and we are going to apply the whip.
“It is either you stay with us or you follow us or you leave. You have the freedom to choose but the freedom does not give you as a minority to go and collaborate and protrude our mandate given to you to another party who was our opposition and who is still our opposition. We would not take that this time, no matter who you think you are.
The APC leadership recently declared support for Yobe senator, Ahmed Lawan to become the next Senate President. Lagos lawmaker and Mr Tinubu’s protege, Femi Gbajabiamila, was also endorsed to become the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
