A National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has revealed that Yemi Osinbajo was a bit hesitant when he was chosen to be President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate for the 2015 Presidential election.
The former Governor of Lagos State, who made the revelation in the ‘Against the Run of Play’ authored by Chairman of the ThisDay Editorial Board, Olusegun Adeniyi, said Osinbajo had told him to first inform the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the decision.
According to Tinubu, “He was a bit hesitant as he asked me to go and tell Pastor Adeboye. I replied by telling him that he needed to inform Pastor Adeboye himself, after all, there had been times when if we needed to see Pastor Adeboye, he was the one who facilitated it.
“I reminded him that since the final choice was not for me to make, I should not go to Pastor Adeboye until after the announcement of his name.”
