Following the mixed reactions that greeted the meeting of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the former vice president Atiku Abubakar at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja on Friday, May 28, the ruling party has reacted.
Wothappen.com had earlier reported that some Twitter users insisted that the meeting of the two leaders may not be unconnected with the race to the 2023 presidential election.
Tinubu and Atiku met at Abuja Airport by chance
Reacting to the rumour, the APC, however, set the record straight on Saturday, May 29, via its official Twitter account, @APCUKingdom, that Tinubu met Atiku at the airport by chance.
It also both statesmen arrived at the airport at about the same time and exchanged courtesies before continuing on their separate journeys.
According to the party, the brief ‘meeting’ was not pre-planned, adding that Asiwaju Tinubu was not part of an entourage to welcome the former vice president back to Nigeria.
