Former Lagos governor and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has debunked speculation that he was working against Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria’s vice president over the 2023 presidency.
Naija News understands that Tinubu made this known while reacting to the latest actions taken by President Muhammadu Buhari allegedly targeted at his deputy, Daily Post reports.
In his reaction, Tinubu’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman, denied the rift between his principal and Osinbajo.
“There is no truth in the allegation that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is against the Vice President. There is nothing stopping the Vice President from nursing a presidential ambition. If he wants to run, let him run.
“We are all watching and waiting. It is all a bundle of lies that Asiwaju Tinubu is unhappy about that. People are just politicising the situation. Tinubu cannot muscle his own boy in any way”, he said.
