Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation spokesman Femi Fani-Kayode has denied the claim by All Progressives Congress (APC) leader Bola Tinubu that the PDP and the Presidency had offered him vice president in an Interim National Government if he would part company with the presidential candidate of the APC Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr. Tinubu’s media office said Thursday that “From what can be gathered through informed sources, the PDP and Jonathan Presidency had recently tried to fracture the APC by offering Tinubu the position of vice President in an interim government if he would agree to Part Company with the popular Buhari.
“Once Tinubu rebuffed the offer to participate in the interim scheme, the presidency decided to change tactics. It would no longer try to entice Tinubu with sugar but would now move to silence and if necessary neutralise him.”
Fani-Kayode said: “We are not in the least bit interested in the formation of an interim government and we are even less interested in participating in any contraption in which Bola Tinubu would play any role.”
Fani-Kayode also reacted to reports that the PDP was trying to frame Tinubu, the murder of a prominent politician in Lagos, Funso Williams.
“It is not true that anyone is trying to frame Tinubu for murder and it is not true that anyone from our government approached him to be the Vice President of anything,” Fani-Kayode said
