Atiku alleges that Tinubu switched his support for him to Yaradua after he refused flying a Muslim-Muslim ticket by allowing him become his running mate in 2007
Yar’Adua won the election, but died in office three years later in May 2010. The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party said;
“He insisted on running with me and I didn’t believe it was right to have a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
“That was the point of my fundamental departure with him.”
Atiku further disclosed in the interview that while Tinubu also asked Muhammadu Buhari to fly a Muslim-Muslim ticket in 2015, the President switched for a Muslim-Christian ticket after he (Atiku) spoke against it alongside others.
