Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that the speculations that he is not in good terms with President Buhari was nothing but fake news.

Tinubu disclosed this while speaking to State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with the President as he said the allegation that he had been sidelined by an existing cabal in Buhari’s government was a mere myth.

The APC leader said he, alongside others worked hard to bring about President Buhari’s government and that he still believed in the personality of the President.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed doors with a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that before his meeting with Mr. Tinubu, Mr. Buhari had earlier met with the Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Dogara Yakubu.

The two separate meetings between the president and his visitors took place at the new Banquet hall.
President Buhari, had on October 26, met with the leaders of the National Assembly after the cancellation of the planned dinner for lawmakers in the Presidential Villa.

The president was to host the lawmakers to dinner at the new Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja, by 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.

He, however, met behind closed doors at his official residence with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, with the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo and some presidential aides in attendance.

President Buhari had earlier met with President Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire, who was on official visit to Nigeria.

Mr. Ouattara had since returned to Abidjan, the Ivorian capital.
