Why Bisi Akande and I visited Buhari — Tinubu

All Progressives Congress National Leader,  Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday said that his visit to President Muhammadu  Buhari was not connected with the critical statement issued by former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Buhari’s presidency.

Tinubu, former Governor Bisi Akande and President Buhari had met behind closed-doors hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo released a statement critical of Buhari.

There were speculations that Buhari urgently called the meeting to discuss the political implication of Obasanjo’s letter.

But Tinubu said through his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman, that the meeting was long scheduled, and had nothing to do with the controversial statement by the former President.

The full statement by Tinubu reads,

Tinubu’s, Akande’s Visit Unconnected with Obasanjo’s Statement

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.
