However, after the trio closed door meeting, Tinubu through his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman, explained that the meeting was long scheduled, and had nothing to do with the controversial statement by the former President.
‘Tinubu’s, Akande’s visit unconnected with Obasanjo’s statement. Today’s visit by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande to the Presidential Villa was scheduled last week .This visit was one such meeting. As such, the meeting had nothing to do with the statement of former President Obasanjo’, the statement emphasised.
‘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.
