Senator Ahmed Sani Yarima, former governor of Zamfara State and two-term senator has explained why President Buhari will not endorse the APC National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidential ambition.

Speaking in an interview with  Daily Trust, the former lawmaker said when asked about insinuations that President Buhari signed a pact with Tinubu, to hand over to him in 202, he said: “How do you intend to tackle this? I don’t think Nigeria belongs to any of them and I don’t think anyone in any position can determine what Nigeria should have. ”

Speaking further, he said “Politics is about election – for people to decide what they want. So it is the majority of the people that will determine who they want. If he signed an agreement with Asiwaju, that agreement cannot be implemented even in getting the ticket. It cannot guarantee Asiwaju a ticket.”

“For example, the president has announced and the party has decided that our primary is going to be direct – just like we elected Mr. President during the primaries of the last general elections. Will he direct everybody to go and vote for Asiwaju? Because, I believe it is going to be a free and fair election, agreement or no agreement is a political statement, but I don’t think that is possible because I don’t think that the Buhari that I know will sign any (such) agreement.”

“He knows that he doesn’t have the powers and the authority to hand over power to whomever he so wishes. He said it is going to be free and fair; in fact, he even said it in the open that he doesn’t have any candidate. So, these are just speculations.”
