Meanwhile, former Aviation Minister in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode on Saturday said he was the first to speak out against a Muslim-Muslim ticket between President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in 2015.
He said the Muslim-Muslim ticket would have been a deep insult to Nigerians and that was why he spoke out against it.
Fani-Kayode spoke out in reaction to the submission by a former military administrator of Lagos State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, who said former President Olusegun Obasanjo stopped the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, from becoming the running mate to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.
Fani-Kayode however in reaction to the news, said he blew the whistle before Obasanjo or any other person spoke against the move.
He insisted that he is proud of what he did and wouldn’t want history to be distorted.
