Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), came into the limelight 30 years ago. Tinubu was elected Senator on the platform of Abiola’s Social Democratic Party (SDP), to represent Lagos-West in Abuja. Tinubu is facing the same dilemma that Abiola faced whether to pick a Muslim or a Christian candidate. Three men had contested for the SDP presidential ticket: Abiola, Atiku and Babagana Kingibe, a smooth-talking former diplomat, who was the founding chairman of the SDP. Now Tinubu is facing the same temptation 30 years after Abiola fell into it.
