Senator Abdulaziz Nyako has revealed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmad Tinubu, and former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, assisted his father, former Governor Muritala Nyako, to escape arrest soon after his removal as governor.
Answering questions from a panel of journalists at a town hall meeting in Yola, Adamawa State, at the weekend, the APC senatorial candidate for Adamawa Central said he owed the duo respect for standing with his father when Northern governors, including members of his G5 group that fought former President Goodluck Jonathan, refused to give him temporary shelter in their states.
The senior Nyako was removed as governor by the House of Assembly in 2014 amid a rift with Jonathan over the latter’s handling of the Boko Haram insurgency.
The senatorial candidate said he had tremendous respect for Tinubu and Saraki for their support to his father at the most critical time when the state security apparatus was deployed to hunt him down after his orchestrated removal from office.
He restated his support for Tinubu’s presidential ambition, saying the Muslim-Muslim ticket did not in any way represent a scheme to exclude the Christian population.
He also described the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) naira redesigning policy as a wrong move that had truncated the economy of the country.
