Tinubu revealed why he was absent during Buhari’s visit to Lagos
Tinubu revealed why he was absent during Buhari’s visit to Lagos. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday cleared the air on his absence during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Lagos State. Buhari had on Wednesday commissioned projects in Lagos. However, Tinubu was obviously absent, a development, which upturned eyebrows among Nigerians. There were suggestions that Tinubu ignored the event as a payback for the President’s absence at the colloquium organised last month to mark his 67th birthday.
But, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media on Thursday said the APC leader did not intentionally stay away from Lagos during Buhari’s visit. He told Daily Independent, “Tinubu missed the event because he is currently out of the country. “Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not in town. He is currently out of the country. That was why he was not present at the occasion, not otherwise.”
