2023: Buhari agreed to support Tinubu as his successor, president's ex-ally speaks
Meanwhile, one of Buhari's former allies, Alhaji Buba Galadima, had said that the Nigerian leader and Tinubu had an agreement before the 2015 general elections.
According to Galadima, during a closed-door meeting specifically in 2013, there was a deal that if Tinubu secures the presidency for Buhari through his massive support, the same would be done for him when the president's tenure expires.
The former associate of the president claimed this resolution was reached when the option of Tinubu being a vice president in 2015 failed on the consideration that a Muslim-Muslim ticket would have been rejected.

However, Galadima said that just like he warned at the time, things are not going according to the plan which was why Tinubu was bitter.
"They said that whatever he does, he should deploy and make sure that Buhari becomes President and that when he (Buhari) is going, he would also do whatever he would in his powers to assist Tinubu to become President.
"It looks like they are now going back on that understanding. And a promise is a promise whether written or unwritten because if you can subvert it, God knows your heart. And God never accepts betrayal. When you are committed, whether it is sour or bitter, or tasty, you have to swallow it..."
