All Progressives Congress National Leader, Sen. Bola Tinubu’s visit to the presidential villa with Chief Bisi Akande on Tuesday is unconnected with Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, according to the former Lagos governor’s media aide.
Mr Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s media aide, said in a statement in Lagos that his principal and Chief Akande were even unaware of former president Obasanjo’s letter at the time of their meeting with President Buhari.
Former President Obasanjo had on Tuesday released a statement on issues affecting the nation and urged President Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019.
Rahman said the visit by Tinubu and Chief Akande to the Presidential Villa was scheduled last week.
He said: ”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 of 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, Tinubu and Baba Akande were even unaware that President Obasanjo had released his statement.”
