Why Buhari visited Tinubu in London – Presidency
Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina why President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday visited the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu in London, United Kingdom.
Buhari’s spokesman said it was a “goodwill visit” and not related to the 2023 politics or some permutations of Tinubu succeeding Buhari in office.
Clearing the air on the reason for the visit, Adesina, stated that his principal did not visit the APC National Leader to discuss the 2023 elections.
Adesina stated this during an interview with Channels Television on Friday.
“We don’t believe what we read on social media. We have read a lot about Tinubu’s health. The president’s visit was a goodwill visit. The president still has two years less three months left. So, for him to start supporting somebody now will be like jumping the gun. You know President Buhari will never do that.
“Before the 2019 election, people began to campaign for him, even before INEC blew the whistle for campaign to start. He was the one who came out to say, ‘No, don’t do it; don’t jump the gun,” he said.
