‘We Must Make Sacrifices’, Tinubu Narrates How He Sacrificed His Senatorial Ambition For Fashola To Become Governor
“I had obtained and filled the INEC form to go to the Senate, then I realised that I have a Governorship candidate, Mr Babatunde Fashola and Obasanjo was the President, determined to win Lagos State.
“I told myself, ‘if I go ahead I will strive to win my seat while leaving Fashola to his fate’. Then one morning I called Ganiyu and told him to follow me to Abuja, we landed and off we went to INEC office, withdrew my form and handed him another form.
“Ganiyu was shocked. He asked me for what sir, I said fill the form, he did and that was how I was able to concentrate in the Governorship election, Fashola won and Gani also won his seat. We must make sacrifices.” -Bola Tinubu
