President Buhari Welcomes Tinubu

National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu has reacted to the media report that he “bombed” President Muhammadu Buhari. 

This came after Tinubu released a statement demanding the resignation of national chairman of the APC Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

APC chairman was cited to have made some remarks about the Nigerian leader, comprising that the latter begged him to emerge president in 2015.

According to a statement issued by the Tinubu media office, Jagaban as fondly called distanced self from the story.

 The statement reads: “In the past 48 hours, we have noticed the churning out of fallacious and outright malicious stories in the social media concerning Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. 

 “We want to state that the stories are patently false and we urge unsuspecting Nigerians to ignore the lies being spread and the wicked stories about what Tinubu purportedly said or did. 

The stories being churned out are being done by some fifth columnists who seek to drive a wedge between these leaders.

 One of such stories is the one entitled ‘Tinubu Bombs Buhari,’ which is fit only for the trash can and a figment of the writer’s imagination. 

“Asiwaju Tinubu remains a staunch APC stalwart and supporter of the APC government under the leadership of President Buhari. 

Tinubu is preoccupied with assisting to find solutions to the present challenges now confronting us as a nation and nothing will distract him from doing this.”\

APC chairman allegedly spoke when he received a segment of APC chieftains from the South West who paid him a solidarity visit late on September 26.

 Tinubu was quoted to have said: “I regret building APC and giving Buhari a platform to become president.”
