Wikileaks: Tinubu Supported OBJ in 2003 to Prevent ‘Buhari’s Sharia’

According to a document published by WikiLeaks, an international organisation that publishes secret information, former Lagos State Governor and a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu supported former President, Olusegun Obasanjo in 2003 Presidential election to prevent the spread/entrenchment of Sharia law in Nigeria.
Although Tinubu admitted that he does not like Obasanjo because he “contributed to the end of democracy in Nigeria… and is now benefitting from history”, he however backed him against Buhari “whose ethnocentrism would jeopardize Nigeria”s national unity”.
Tinubu was also qouted to have praised the then Vice President now Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar,
“Tinubu said he has known and understood the VP even before his entry into politics. Atiku is a detribalized politician who knows where he is going and how to build bridges to get there. Tinubu expects Atiku will play a larger role in the next presidential administration, especially in economic affairs, while Obasasanjo will concentrate on external relations.
Atiku may also assume responsibility for other domestic portfolios in the next administration”.
