It’s Tuesday and WeetalknaijaBlog travels back in time to April 1997 when the current national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu allegedly asserted that he ‘does not believe in One Nigeria’.   

The individuals who don’t have faith in an assembled Nigeria and need the West African country to isolate are principally the Pro Biafrans drove by Maazi Nnamdi Kanu. 

Tinubu, before Nigeria’s revisitation of vote based standard in 1999, started his political vocation in 1992, when he joined the Social Democratic Party (SDP) where he was an individual from the Peoples Front group drove by Shehu Musa Yar’Adua and comprised of different lawmakers, for example, Umaru Yar’Adua, Atiku Abubakar, Baba Gana Kingibe, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Abdullahi Aliyu Sumaila, Magaji Abdullahi, Dapo Sarumi and Yomi Edu. 

He was chosen for the Senate, speaking to the Lagos West voting demographic in the brief Nigerian Third Republic. 

After the consequences of the 12 June, 1993 official decisions were abrogated, Tinubu turned into an establishing individual from the favorable to popular government National Democratic Coalition, a gathering that activated help for the rebuilding of majority rules system and acknowledgment of Moshood Abiola as the victor of the June 12 political race. 

Following the capture of intensity as military head of province of General Sani Abacha, he went into oust in 1994 and got back to the nation in 1998 after the passing of the military despot, which introduced the progress to the Fourth Nigerian Republic. 

In the approach the 1999 decisions, Bola Tinubu was a protégé of Alliance for Democracy (AD) pioneers Abraham Adesanya and Ayo Adebanjo. 

He proceeded to win the AD primaries for the Lagos State governorship decisions in crushing Funsho Williams and Wahab Dosunmu, a previous Minister of Works and Housing. 

In January 1999, he represented the situation of Governor of Lagos State on the AD ticket and was chosen. 

Twice he filled in as the main resident of Lagos State and has since been a giant power in Nigeria’s political territory. 

A This Day Newspaper distribution of a past Tinubu meet with Ayo Arowolo, the current Chief of Staff (CoS) to the Chairman of Arise Group, Prince Nduka Obaigbena, has now surfaced on the web, with some online media analysts scrutinizing the nationalism of the 68-year-old.  

Then, as at the hour of distributing this report, we can’t autonomously confirm the legitimacy of the distribution.
