My visit To Buhari unconnected with Obasanjo’s Letter – Tinubu


A national leader of the All Progressive Congress, (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said his visit to President Mohammadu Buhari, today, has nothing to do with the letter written by former Olusegun Obasanjo.

The former Lagos governor and Bisi Akande, a national of APC had met behind closed-doors hours after former President Obasanjo released a statement criticising the administration of President Buhari.

Some had speculated that President Buhari called the meeting with the APC chieftains to discuss about the letter written by the former President.

Tinubu in a statement by his spokesman, Tunde Rahman, said the meeting had nothing to do with the statement of former President Obasanjo.

“Today’s visit by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande to the Presidential Villa was scheduled last week”.

“President Buhari periodically schedules talks with Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande, as he does with other Nigerians and APC figures, to discuss substantive issues pertaining to the governance of the country and matters concerning the party”.

“This visit was one such meeting. As such, the meeting had nothing to do with the statement of former President Obasanjo”.

“It is totally unconnected. At the time of the meeting, Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande were even unaware that President Obasanjo had released his statement”.
