President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu has reacted to the alleged war between his principal and the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
According to a statement by Garba Shehu; “To put the records straight: In the formation of this great party and giving it leadership, President Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who are reckoned as the founding fathers of the APC are both inspired by democratic norms, national interest and not at all by partisan motivations. These are the qualities that have made them move past cynical distractions.”
“They are in touch with one another. Their relationship remains as strong as ever and between the two of them, only they know how they manage their enviable relationship.”
“Try as hard as they could, the opposition parties have used all their intellectuals and their supporters in the media to break this relationship and have failed. And they won’t,” the statement read in part.”
For those who don’t know, President Muhammadu Buhari has dissolved the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC.
Sources disclosed that the decision to dissolve the NWC was an attempt to cut down Adams Oshiomhole and Bola Tinubu’s influence in the party.
Sources also added that majority of the dissolved NWC are believed to be loyal to Oshiomhole and Tinubu.
