Busted! Why Opposition Parties Failed to Break Relationship Between Buhari and Tinubu – Presidency

By Chris Udochukwu

Abuja (Precise Post) – President Muhammadu Buhari and Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, who are reckoned as the founding fathers of the APC are both inspired by democratic norms, national interest and not at all by partisan motivations since the formation of the All Progressives Congress and in giving it leadership, the Presidency has said.

Speaking through Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, the Presidency noted that the above are the qualities that have made the duo move past cynical distractions by opposition parties and their supporters in the media.

Garba Shehu who took to his verified twitter handle @GarShehu to disclose this, said that is why opposition parties have used all their intellectuals and their supporters in the media to break this relationship and have failed.

The Presidency which informed that their relationship remains as strong as ever and only they know how they manage their enviable relationship in a series of tweets twitted thus:

“To put the records straight: In the formation of this great party and giving it leadership, President Buhari and @AsiwajuTinubu, who are reckoned as the founding fathers of the APC are both inspired by democratic norms, national interest and not at all by partisan motivations.

These are the qualities that have made them move past cynical distractions.

They are in touch with one another. Their relationship remains as strong as ever and between the two of them, only they know how they manage their enviable relationship.

Try as hard as they could, the opposition parties have used all their intellectuals and their supporters in the media to break this relationship and have failed. And they won’t.

For President Buhari who has received much of the cynical commentary, Nigerians know him as someone who will not do anything with bad intentions. Neither will he do anything out of partisan motivations or for himself.

This whole exercise, that should lead to massive reform and overhaul of the leadership of the party, as he said in that brilliant speech, was ”to save the APC from the imminent self-destruction.

We have to move ahead. We have to take everyone with us and ensure that the party is run in accordance with democratic norms and with consensus. We have to work for the benefit of the country.”

The leaders of the party, who have received two successive massive mandates to govern the country and a majority of the states should be judged by how this exercise turns out in achieving these objectives, not cursed at the mere commencement of the process.
