There Is No Rift Between Me And Tinubu–Buhari

By Ikenga Chronicles November 29, 2016

Barely 48-hours after the Ondo Governorship Election that saw the emergence of Rotimi Akeredolu as winner,and the alleged humiliation of  the All Progressives Congress(APC) National Leader, Bola Tinubu, President Muhammadu Buhari has issued a statement.

The Statement was as a result of the media report making the rounds that Bola Tinubu had worked against the interest of the APC and rooted for the victory of Olusola Oke at the just concluded Ondo State Gubernatorial Election, even as Tinubu while congratulating the Ondo State Governor-Elect had applauded Buhari for being behind the victory of APC at the last Saturday’s poll.

A statement by Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu on Monday evening said the President was highly embarrassed by such narratives while describing it as ‘’mischievous.’’

Buhari, he said, was in regular contact with Tinubu before, during and after the Ondo governorship election.

Garba explained that he was impressed by Tinubu’s assurance not to work against the party in Ondo which he honoured.

He advised rumourmongers to stop sowing seeds of discord and animosity between the President and Tinubu or the party, adding that the President is proud of the Jagaban and his pivotal role in the party and the movement.

“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.”

He urged APC members and supporters to ignore rumours that could harm the party’s unity.
