President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday denied reports that he and the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu were not in good terms.
According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President said he was in contact with Tinubu during and after the Ondo governorship election.
He described the reports as mischievous, while stating that Tinubu was a priceless political asset to the party whose contributions are known to all.
The statement read, “President Buhari commended Tinubu’s spirit of comradeship in promptly congratulating Rotimi Akeredolu who was elected Governor.
“The President also noted that at a time his administration is preoccupied with governance issues, rumours of divisions and alleged scheming within the party are counterproductive to internal unity and cohesion in APC.
