In other news, a rather interesting drama ensued between Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Yemi Osinbajo at the APC Presidential primary in Abuja today, June 8.
Tinubu left his seat to greet President Muhammadu Buhari who had just arrived the Eagle Square to witness the vote collation of aspirants.
However, he passed Osinbajo who was seated inches away from the president and greeted him, his wife, and other party members, but completely ignored the Vice President who also stood up to greet him.
He then proceeded to return to his seat but was approached by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, who told him that he did not greet Osinbajo.
Tinubu immediately made a U-turn and greeted Osinbajo, before walking back to his seat.
Although, it’s not clear if the APC presidential candidate ignored Osinbajo on purpose.
