President Muhammadu Buhari has denied rumour making the rounds that he is fighting former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The denial was contained in a statement the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, issued in Abuja.
Shehu in the statement explained that neither the President nor the entire APC leadership is at war with Tinubu, describing the rumours as unfounded and mischievous.
The statement reads in part, “Any suggestions that the President and the party machinery were working to destroy Tinubu had no foundation in truth or any credibility. The President was impressed by Tinubu’s assurance not to work against the party in Ondo and he honoured his words.
“President Buhari regards Tinubu as a priceless political asset to the party whose immeasurable contributions to the development and progress of the ruling party are known to all.”
