Purported rift between president Muhammadu Buhari and the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu has been debunked.
Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu in a statement Wednesday said, the alleged feud is a device plotted by detractors.
“The President and the Asiwaju have a very strong commitment to the All Progressives Congress, APC towards bringing CHANGE and this is a commitment they have made to the Nigerian people,” he said.
He expressed displeasure that some section of the media over the news guzzled spins and feasted on innuendos from naysayers.
“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.
“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,” he said.
