The Special Adviser in Media and Publicity to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Mr. Tunde Rahman, has described a report on social media denying that the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Tinubu, and former Interim Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, denied visiting President Muhammad Buhari last Thursday in London as the handiwork of mischief-makers.
He said in an emailed response that it was unthinkable that anyone would deny a visit whose photographs were splashed all over the papers and in the international media.
Rahman said: “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”.
