By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to the Presidency, the purported misunderstanding between President Muhammadu Buhari and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is the handiwork of mischief-makers.
This was contained in a statement on Wednesday by Mr. Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President, which stated both leaders were united in their resolute commitment to the APC’s drive towards redeeming its promises to Nigerians.
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.
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, the president’s spokesman noted.
The rumour mill has been agog with stories of a rift between Buhari and Tinubu, consequent to the latter’s infrequent visits to Aso Rock Villa, which is said to be an indication of his adversarial dispositions to the President and his administration.
