APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has quelled speculations of a rift between him and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo after paying him a surprise visit at the State House in Abuja on Thursday, June 9.
This comes after the duo contested for the presidential ticket of the All Progressive Ticket which Tinubu won with a landslide victory and amassed more votes than that of all the other candidates combined.
There were speculations that the primaries will create a rift between both politicians because some believed Osibanjo betrayed Tinubu by contesting against him despite being his “political benefaciary.”
However, the APC chieftain has laid those speculations to rest after he paid a visit to President Buhari and used the opportunity to see Osibanjo.
According to a source who spoke with Premium Times, Tinubu said he and Osinbajo are like blood brothers as they have come a long way together.
“We were just sitting around when the vice president was informed that Asiwaju has arrived.
Asiwaju said he is surprised that people assume the presidential contest will create a wedge between him and the vice president. He told us that they have come a long way and they are like blood brothers now.
He said what happened was just democracy in action and there was nothing wrong with it,” the source said.
