Mischief Makers Can’t separate Me And Tinubu, President Buhari Vows

Tinubu and BuhariPresident Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that no amount of rumour and insinuations would separate him and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The President, who in a statement today by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, dismissed rumours that he and the APC leadership are at odds with Tinubu, adding that such rumours are unfounded and mischievous.
The President said that he was highly embarrassed by such “suggestions” as he had been in regular contacts with Tinubu before, during and after the Ondo gubernatorial election.
He said that any suggestion that he and the party machinery are working to destroy Tinubu has no foundation in truth or any credibility.
Buhari said that he was impressed by Tinubu’s assurance not to work against the party in Ondo state and he honoured his words, saying that he regards Tinubu as a priceless political asset to the All Progressives Congress (APC) whose immeasurable contributions to the development and progress of the party are known to all.
He advised rumour mongers to stop spreading the seeds of discord and animosity between his and Tinubu or the party, adding that he is proud of the Jagaba 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 said 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 appealed to APC members and supporters to ignore rumours that could harm the party unity. [myad]
