"When Tinubu emerged, he emerged in the most corrupt way. I knew how delegates were given money to go and vote, but it was not just to go and vote; the name Asiwaju was written on each ballot paper.
"They were only paid to go and drop it in the box. For that reason alone, I had no interest in that primary election. Yes, I was in the APC, but I couldn’t even liberate myself at that point in time. I waited, but I never attended any of the meetings, and I was not interested in anything."
I was rooting for Osinabjo at APC presidential primary - Najaatu
During an interview with The Punch on Sunday, January 29, she disclosed that she actually had Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in mind during the APC presidential primary.
The former chieftain of the APC said she was backing Osinbajo because he was much younger, brilliant, and educated.
"Let me tell you what really happened. In the first place, I did not support Tinubu as a presidential aspirant; my support was for Professor Yemi Osinbajo from day one.
"In fact, I had sent emissaries to Osinbajo to come out and contest, that he is relatively young, well-educated, proactive, and brilliant."
