APC National leader, Bola Tinubu, says the closed door meeting he had with President Buhari on Tuesday, had nothing to do with the explosive open letter ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo released earlier the same day. In a statement released by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, the former Lagos state governor said the meeting was one of Buhari’s usual meetings with the party leaders.
Today’s visit by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande to the Presidential Villa was scheduled last week. 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 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, Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande were even unaware that President Obasanjo had released his statement.” the statement read
