Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has asked former military President Ibrahim Babangida and ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo to join the club of retirees.
Tinubu said this on Tuesday while addressing state house correspondents at the end of a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bisi Akande, former interim chairman of the APC, accompanied Tinubu to the meeting.
Tinubu in reaction to the advice by the former presidents that Buhari should not run in 2019 said: “I don’t address those shadows. We should let our former presidents join retirees’ club and take pensions but they can participate in our politics if they are interested.
“It is a free world but this freedom is not served a la carte but they should allow us to move our country forward. It is a challenge to every Nigerian.”
