Former National Security Adviser (NSA) to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) has revealed how he knelt down before ex-governors of Osun and Lagos State, Bisi Akande and Bola Tinubu, to accept President Muhammadu Buhari as the joint Presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in 2011.

In a new book written by a Public Relations professional, Yushau Shuaib titled “An Encounter with the Spymaster” Dasuki campaign for Buhari in 2011 was revealed.

In the book, Shuaib said:  “The major shocker for me in his (Dasuki) narratives was his campaign for Buhari to emerge the joint candidate for the ACN and CPC in 2011.

Dasuki stated that he knelt down begging Baba Bisi Akande who was the then chairman of the ACN that, Buhari is a man to be trusted.

In their belief that Yorubas and South Westerners are never religious fanatics especially regarding politics, Dasuki and his group suggested that Tinubu should be a running mate to Buhari.

When other elements opposed that proposition, Tinubu’s team, therefore recommended a Buhari-Osinbajo ticket.”

Shuaib further said the Buhari-Osinbajo ticket then failed to stick as Tunde Bakare was eventually brought forward.
