Breaking: There is no dispute between President Buhari, Tinubu – Presidency

The Presidency has come out to strongly deny allegations of the existence of a rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, saying that the perceived rift is the handiwork of cynics.

According to a press release on Wednesday from the State House, The Presidency made it clear that there is no rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and his strong ally, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“The President and the Asiwaju have a very strong commitment to the All Progressives Congress, APC towards bringing CHANGE and this is a commitment they have made to the Nigerian people.

“Recent reports of a rift between the two leaders of our party are false; the handiwork of some media mischief makers,” it stated.

The release further states that a section of the media is unduly fanning the embers of non-existent discord between the President Buhari and Tinubu: “It is quite unfortunate that certain sections of the media feed on birthing controversies, providing a nexus for naysayers who work behind the scenes planting such stories which are absolutely false.

“This administration is aware of pessimists and cynics who willfully spread misinformation to create doubts in the minds of the people about the relationship between its leaders and whether the party will remain intact or not.

The Presidency maintains that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is focused to deliver on its promise to the Nigerian people saying, “there is no doubt that the President and the party are focused on development, peace and security, restructuring of the economy and war against corruption in the country and will not be diverted to anything else. This desperate attempt to fool the people will not succeed.

As far as the Presidency is concerned, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu remains a strong pillar of the APC. “To President Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu remains one of the most respected political leaders in the country who has stuck to his principles in the face of all adversities.

“He was instrumental to the formation, growth and development of the APC into a formidable political party and the political alliance is waxing even stronger.

“If the Asiwaju is not a frequent face in the Aso Rock Villa, it is on account of the fact that he is not a cabinet member of this government. The fact that he is not every day around the Villa does not make him less of a friend to the President and this administration,” the release stated.
