Associates and loyal politicians to the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu are set to revive the Alliance for Democracy (AD) and quit the APC em mass ahead of the 2019 election.

According to a report by Daily Sun, Mr Tinubu’s men will use the Ondo gubernatorial election as to test waters as Tinubu’s camp have opened discussions with stakeholders of AD.

Recall that Tinubu was elected governor of Lagos state in 1999 under the party but left to form AC, then ACN which later merge with ANPP, CPC and a fraction of APGA in 2014.

A party source quoted in the report said the rejection of the recommendations of the three-member Election Appeal Committee chaired by Mrs Helen Bendega, which called for cancellation of the poll that produced Chief Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), and the submission of his name to INEC by the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun was the cause of the cold war between Tinubu and Oyegun.

Tinubu would later demand for the resignation of Odigie-Oyegun who he accused of treating with disdain the joint petition written by Chiefs Oke, Olusegun Abraham and Senator Ajayi Borrofice rejecting the outcome of the primary that produced Akeredolu.

While Tinubu’s associates might be working to revive AD, Mr Tinubu’s media aide, Tunde Rahman refused to confirm or deny the move.

 On his part, a member of the Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, also could not denied nor confirmed the reconciliation moves but said there was need for the Yoruba to speak with one voice. “I am not yet in the picture; what we know is that we are for peace and unity in Yorubalnd.

The details of such talks, I can’t tell you, but Afenifere’s desire is for strong realignment in Yorubaland”.

“Who are those making the insinuations? Let them justify what they are saying. I don’t want to react to that,” he told Daily Sun.
