He added that Tinubu is a loyal man and devoted patriot who stands committed to supporting President Buhari realize his policy objectives for the benefit of all Nigerians.
He said, “The insinuation of a cold war between them is the stuff of idle gossip by people who profit from causing controversy where there is none.
“Asiwaju Tinubu is a loyal man and devoted patriot who stands committed, in any capacity he can, to supporting President Buhari realize his policy objectives for the benefit of all Nigerians.
“It is a testament to the quality of the relationship between them that President Buhari has so kindly agreed to chair the 12th annual colloquium marking Asiwaju‘s birthday on Monday.
“We expect the colloquium to be a productive and enlightening event where important issues are discussed and serious recommendations made. This is the type of interaction that will help Nigeria achieve its better self.”
