Adamu to Tinubu: ‘You disrespected Buhari, your explanation not enough’
ABUJA – The leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as unacceptable the outburst of national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, against President Muhammadu Buhari.
APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, disclosed this on Saturday afternoon.
Tinubu was campaigning in Abeokuta on Thursday when he said he deserves to lead the nation after helping President Buhari win the 2015 election.
Many viewed his speech as disrespectful to the President.
But in a statement on Friday, Tinubu maintained that he holds President Buhari in high regard.
He said his comments were not meant to disrespect the President and had been taken out of context.
The former Lagos State Governor said reactions suggesting he had been disrespectful were sensational and incorrect.
However, while speaking with reporters at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja on Saturday, Senator Adamu noted that the explanation later offered by Tinubu was not enough.
He also said the party has appealed the judgment in favour of statutory delegates, meaning they will not participate in the upcoming presidential primary.
The APC Chairman announced that all presidential aspirants are scheduled to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari tonight. (NewsExpress)
