Tinubu debunks alleged strained relationship with Buhari after Villa closed door meeting

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that Nigeria will emerge stronger from the current challenges that she is going through as other great nations went through similar challenges.

He said this after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in a press briefing with State House correspondents. Tinubu was accompanied by former Osun State Governor, Chief Bisi Akande.

Tinubu said: “The best way forward is what we are doing; coming together to reduce banditry, to move for unity and be able to bring a better Nigeria to the people. The welfare of our people is extremely important.

“Yes, every nation will go through these curves and difficult times. How we communicate it to the people; what are the areas to help make things easier for people? Those are the ideas we have to exchange with the leadership of the country.”

He also debunked some insinuations making the rounds that he had a strained relationship with Buhari since he wasn’t a frequent visitor to the Villa. He cleared the air by saying: “There is nothing like unhealthy relationship between us. Who is our doctor? Is it social media that is measuring the relationship?

“I don’t have to disturb him openly on camera; is it? No, we have so many ways to look at issues. We have nothing like that.”

When asked to describe his relationship with the President, he said it is “very close and cordial, frank and honest”.
