Why I visited Buhari -Tinubu


All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart Asiwaju Bola Tinubu yesterday explained that his mission to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for visiting him in London.

He told reporters that any discussion with the President was not a matter for the public.

Buhari, who was billed to leave Abuja for the United Kingdom (UK) last night to participate in the ongoing United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), returned to Abuja on Friday after a five-day working visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Responding to questions after the meeting, Tinubu said he was at the State House to thank the President for visiting him in London after his surgery, noting that it was a mark of exceptional leadership.

 “It’s only to thank the President, first of all, for his visit to my residence in London after the surgery and wishing me well, lifting my spirit and indeed, what an exceptional leader will do to collaborate. So, that’s what I came for and to welcome him back from the trip from Saudi.

“No politics, just courtesy call to thank him in a big way. That’s all.”

Asked what the President’s response was, Tinubu said the President was happy he was around, adding that he was not obliged to speak on other things they discussed.
