No Rift Between Me and Tinubu - Buhari

                        •Tinubu & Buhari

From Jane Okafor, Abuja

The President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday made it clear that there is no rift between him President Muhammadu Buhari and his strong ally, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Buhari said it there was any rift, it could be the one that existed in the imagination of cynics.

The President explained that he and Asiwaju have a very strong commitment to the All Progressives Congress, APC towards bringing the promised CHANGE, stressing that it remained a commitment  both have made to the Nigerian people.

"Recent reports of a rift between the two leaders of our party are false; the handiwork of some media mischief makers.

"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 willfully 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," Buhari stated in a release by Garba Shehu, his 
Senior Special Assistant(Media & Publicity)

The release further quoted President Buhari as saying "Asiwaju Bola Tinubu remains one of the most respected political leaders in the country who has stuck to his principles in the face of all adversities."

Continuing, he added : "He was instrumental to the formation, growth and development of the APC into a formidable political party and the political alliance is waxing even stronger.

"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 this government. The fact that he is not every day around the Villa does not make him less of a friend to the President and this administration."
