No Rift Between Buhari And Tinubu — Presidency

The Presidency has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari and the national leader of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, are not at war.

A statement by Garba Shehu, spokesman for the President Buhari, on Saturday, 27th June 2020 said that relations between Buhari and Tinubu were cordial.

The dismissal of the APC leadership, which is known to have been supported by the party’s national leader, has raised suspicions of a broken relationship between the duo.

In the statement, Shehu accused the opposition of fuelling rumours of a split between the president and Tinubu.

The statement reads: “The motions that President Muhammadu Buhari tabled at the emergency session of the National Executive Committee of the All Progressive Congress, which were unanimously approved, are essentially aimed at withdrawing the party, which is facing an existential crisis, from the brink of collapse, complying with the Constitution and taking everyone with it.

“While this action was received with great relief by the lovers of democracy and the grassroots membership, we are concerned that political culturalism, which claims to be “wise analysis”, is selling the comment that this is a “showdown” between Buhari and Tinubu. Nothing can be further from the truth.

“To set things right: In founding this great party and assuming its leadership, President Buhari and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is considered the founding fathers of the APC, are guided by democratic norms, national interests and not at all by partisan motives. These are the qualities that have led them to leave behind cynical distractions.

“They are in contact with each other. Their relationship remains as strong as ever, and only they know how to handle their enviable relationship.

“The opposition parties have used all their intellectuals and supporters in the media to break this relationship and have failed, however hard they tried. And they won’t do it.

“For President Buhari, who has received much of the cynical commentary, Nigerians know him as someone who will not do anything with bad intentions. “He will also not do anything for partisan reasons or for himself.

“This whole exercise, which should lead to massive reform and overhaul of the party’s leadership, should serve, as he said in this brilliant speech, to ”save the APC from the threat of self-destruction. We must move forward. We must take everyone with us and ensure that the party is run in accordance with democratic norms and by consensus. We must work for the good of the country”.

“The Party leaders who have been given two successive massive mandates to govern the country and the majority of states should be judged by how well this exercise in achieving these goals is carried out, and not be cursed at the very start of the process“.
