BEVERLY HILLS, March 25, (THEWILL) – The Presidency says there is no rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu.

A statement on Wednesday by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said that the two leaders had a strong commitment to the All Progressives Congress (APC) towards bringing Change, adding that this was a commitment they had made to the Nigerian people.

It clarified that recent reports of a rift between the two leaders of the party were false, the handiwork of some media mischief-makers.


The President’s spokesman noted: “It is quite unfortunate that certain sections of the media feed on birthing controversies, providing a nexus for naysayers who work behind the scenes planting such stories which are absolutely false.

“This administration is aware of pessimists and cynics who wilfully spread misinformation to create doubts in the minds of the people about the relationship between its leaders and whether the party will remain intact or not.

“There is no doubt that the President and the party are focused on development, peace and security, restructuring of the economy, and war against corruption in the country and will not be diverted to anything else. This desperate attempt to fool the people will not succeed.”

The statement further said that Tinubu remained one of the most respected political leaders in the country and he had stuck to his principles in the face of all adversities, adding that, the political stalwart was instrumental to the formation, growth, and development of the APC into a formidable political party and the political alliance was waxing even stronger.

According to the President’s aide, “If the Asiwaju is not a frequent face in the Aso Rock Villa, it is on account of the fact that he is not a cabinet member of the present government.”

He stressed that the fact that Tinubu is not everyday around the Villa does not make him less of a friend to the President and this administration.
