KanyiDaily reported that President Buhari had on Wednesday visted Lagos to commission projects.
During the president’s visit, Tinubu was conspicuously absent, a development, which raised eyebrows among Nigerians.
There were insinuations that Tinubu shunned the event as a payback for the President’s absence at the colloquium organised last month to mark his 67th birthday.
But, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media on Thursday told Daily Independent that the APC leader did not deliberately stay away from Lagos during Buhari’s visit. He said:
“Tinubu missed the event because he is currently out of the country.
“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not in town. He is currently out of the country. That was why he was not present at the occasion, not otherwise.”
