Tinubu: It’s crazy to say I didn’t visit Buhari in London


Former governor of Lagos State and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said it is crazy to insinuate that he didn’t visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London as being speculated in some publications on social media.

The former Lagos Governor who visited Buhari with the pioneer chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande last Thursday as reflected in widely circulated photographs reacted to the speculations in a statement by Tunde Rahman, his media aide on Monday evening.

Tinubu media aide said, “I felt we should not dignify that with a response. That report beggars’ belief. Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande were in London. The reason they traveled to the United Kingdom was to see President Buhari.

“And they visited him last Thursday and held discussions with him at the Abuja House in London. After the visit, the President, as a mark of respect, saw off his guests to the door. Pictures were taken during and after the visit and released to the media by The Presidency.

“These pictures were international headlines. “How can anybody in his or her right senses be saying there was no such visit? It’s simply crazy! I can’t just get it.”
