Jagaban dismisses false reports
National leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has stated that he visited president Muhammadu Buhari in London, dismissing a viral online report that he didn’t.
The report that went viral on Monday, claimed that the APC leader disclaimed his visit to president Buhari in company of Chief Bisi Akande. The report quoted Tinubu as saying that he was in Ibadan on the supposed day of the meeting.
In a statement signed by Rahman Tunde, media aide to the former governor, Tinubu debunks the reports. The statement read;
“The report about the so-called denial of the visit is the handiwork of mischief- makers. 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 travelled 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.”
