The presidency has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, as a goodwill visit, stressing that “we have read a lot about Tinubu’s health”.
Naija News recalls that President Buhari on Thursday visited Asiwaju Tinubu in London, United Kingdom.
Speaking during an interview with Channels Television on Friday, Buhari’s Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, said his principal did not visit the former Lagos State governor to talk about the 2023 election.
According to Adesina, it is too early for Buhari to support any aspirant.
He said: “We don’t believe what we read on social media. We have read a lot about Tinubu’s health. The president’s visit was a goodwill visit.
“The president still has two years less three months left. So, for him to start supporting somebody now will be like jumping the gun. You know President Buhari will never do that.
“Before the 2019 election, people began to campaign for him, even before INEC blew the whistle for campaign to start. He was the one who came out to say ‘no, don’t do it; don’t jump the gun’.”
