No one in his or her right senses will say I didn’t visit Buhari in London – Tinubu



President Buhari seeing off his guests – Bisi Akande and Bola Tinubu – at Abuja House, London

National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has said that it is crazy for anyone to say that he did not visit President Muhammadu Buhari in London.

Tinubu, who alongside APC Board of Trustees Chairman, Bisi Akande, was pictured with Buhari in London last Thursday, was reacting to reports that he didn’t travel to London.


A statement was released to this effect by his media aide, Tunde Rahman.

“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,” the statement said.

    Lies! Lies! Lies!

    Nigerian politicians use big words they have no business using to deceive people.

    Tinubu, who employed you as THE Nigerian representative? Why did he, Mr Ex President Buhari, not come out to assauge the concerns of the Nigerians residing there? Since when did he become too big for us, Nigerians?

    We employed Buhari as president and he owes us an explanation about his hiatus. Talk about insubordination and abuse of power. President Buhari is an EMPLOYEE OF THE NIGERIAN REPUBLIC. If he is not well, he is to say so. Not an official letter to the House of Corrupts.

    If you dont think he owes us any explanation and his letter for indefinite absence is enough THEN WHY ALL THESE ATTEMPTS to convince us that all is well?

    I do not blame you all. I blame Nigerians. We vote based on sentiments rather than logic. A man who is not well to rule refuses to step down. What greed!!!! What audacity!! And yet he opens his mouth to say he is fighting corruption? How?

    Want to fight corruption? Start in the North! A man with four wives and thirty children on a civil servant salary of 100,000 naira. How wont he be corrupt?

    This country!!

    They use one side of the mouth to condemn the West but are the most obsessed with anything Western! The same man who encouraged his appointed leaders to use Nigerian health care system is no where to be found in the said Nigerian health care system but gladly using tax payers hard earned money to heal himself. The effrontery!!
