TROUBLE IN APC!!! Why I ‘Shunned’ Buhari’s Lagos Visit – Tinubu Explodes, Releases Statement

The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, on Friday, has cleared the air on his absence during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Lagos State.

Post-Nigeria could recall, that Buhari had on Wednesday, commissioned projects in Lagos. However, Tinubu was conspicuously absent, a development, which raised eyebrows among Nigerians.

There were insinuations that Tinubu shunned the event, as a payback for the President’s absence at the Colloquium, organised last month, to mark his 67th birthday.

In a swift response however, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media, disclosed that the APC Leader did not deliberately stay away from Lagos, during Buhari’s visit.

He said: “Tinubu missed the event, because he is currently out of the country.

“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not in town. He is currently out of the country. That was why he was not present at the occasion, not otherwise.”
