Following build up to 2019 elections and restoring peace and tranquility to the ruling APC, President Buhari had earlier appointed former lagos state governor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to Reconcile aggrieved members of the APC.
in line with his appointment as the head of APC Presidential Reconciliation committee, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande were slated to have a meeting with President Buhari at the presidential villa.
Pictures from their meeting surfaced online with all three of them laughing out loud in what seemed to be a favourable outcome from the meeting.
After the meeting, Tinubu granted pressmen at the villa a brief interview and was asked his opinion on Obasanjo and IBB's letter to president Buhari..
Tinubu said : " I don’t address those shadows. We should let our former presidents join retirees’ club and take pensions. But they can participate in our politics if they are interested.
“It is a free world. But this freedom is not served a la carte but they should allow us to move our country forward. It is a challenge to every Nigerian.”
Speaking on the chances of APC in 2019, he added: “You are asking me an obvious question. I belong to this party. My commitment is to this party. We have a better chance and we are strongly determined to prosecute election in a most transparent and democratic manner and we will win.”
