'Tinubu Holds Different View About Buhari In Private' – Junaid Mohammed


Kano State delegate to the 2014 National Conference, Dr Junaid Mohammed, said there was nothing wrong with Tinubu or anybody for that matter being ambitious.

He stated he would not quarrel with politically-ambitious people so long as the process of actualising their ambition would not lead to collateral damage that could ruin the country.

Mohammed made his view known in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday.

The medical doctor-turned politician said, “Unlike Bukola Saraki, I do not blame anybody for being ambitious as long as the process of achieving the ambition doesn’t create so must collateral damage that will be harmful to the country. I don’t have any problem with it.

Speaking about Tinubu’s statement which led to Saraki’s response, Mohammed said, “I don’t know if the information he has as regards either Buhari himself, Tambuwal or Bukola Saraki for that matter is necessarily 100 per cent reliable.

“Let me state for the records, Tinubu is my friend and I would not take issue with people I consider my friends publicly.

“Having said so, I must admit that some of his criticisms in defence of Buhari, the APC and even Adams Oshiomhole, who was until recently a persona non grata to him, is something I find rather amusing and somewhat a little surprising.

“And I don’t know whatever calculations he might have had in his defence right or wrong of Buhari contrary to what he tells people in private; no matter how he goes about his defence of Buhari and people like Oshiomhole and others, I don’t think that will pay him off eventually in his own political ambition.”
