President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday evening hosted the national leader of the All Progressives Congress Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to Ramadan breakfast at the Presidential Villa, Abuja and debunked rumours of rift between them.
A pictorial report from the president’s special Assistant, Sunday Aghaeze shows the President and Tinubu on a dinning table with varieties of fruits and drinks while the president was also pictured seeing off his guest.
Report gathers the sudden appearance of Tinubu at the Presidential Villa has finally put to rest the reported ‘political misunderstandings’ between the president and the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress.
Tinubu’s absence during the last President’s visit to Lagos shortly before his 10-day private visit to London was misinterpreted in some quarters.
Similarly, President Buhari’s inability to attend 2019 Tinubu’s colloquium at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, to mark his 67th birthday, was equally misconstrued by some social commentators.
The President, who was represented at the event, by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, was on official engagements at the villa where he was inaugurating the new Micro Pension Plan about the same time the colloquium was holding at the centre.
According to reports President Buhari uses some days of the Ramadan to host political, traditional and religious leaders as well as other prominent and ordinary citizens to Ramadan breakfast at the villa.
