Tuesday’s visit to the Presidential Villa by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande, both chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), was scheduled last week and unconnected with Tuesday’s hot open letter to President Buhari by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

The clarification was made last night by the Tinubu Media Office in a statement signed by Tunde Rahman.

“President Buhari,” the statement said, “periodically schedules talks with Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande, as he does with other Nigerians and APC figures, to discuss substantive issues pertaining to the governance of the country and matters concerning the party.

“This visit was one such meeting. As such, the meeting had nothing to do with the statement of former President Obasanjo.

“It is totally unconnected. At the time of the meeting, Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande were even unaware that President Obasanjo had released his statement.”
