‘Buhari, Tinubu, Akande Meeting Not Linked To Obasanjo’s Statement’

The visit by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande to the Presidential Villa was scheduled last week.

According to Tinubu’s media office, ‘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.’
