Tunde Rahman, the spokesman for All Progressives Congress Chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has described yesterday’s meeting between his principal and the former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as a chance meeting
He said there is nothing wrong with the meeting of his principal and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar at the Abuja airport on Friday.
Recall that a viral video had shown Tinubu exchanging pleasantries with Atiku, a Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 elections. Atiku returned to the country after months of his stay abroad.
Many social media users were surprised at the
meeting of the two chieftains who belonged to different political parties in the country.
Commenting on the meeting via his Twitter handle on Saturday, Rahman wrote, “On the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu – Alhaji Atiku Abubakar video at Abuja Airport. It was a chance meeting at the airport in Abuja. Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar had arrived first and was in his car about to leave when Asiwaju arrived.
According to him, “As he was informed about him, Asiwaju walked up to Atiku vehicle to exchange pleasantries with him.
“Those making an issue out of this noble gesture should have a rethink. For the life of me, are they saying if two persons know each other and are friends, they must not greet each other as mature persons again because they find themselves in opposing political parties? If that’s their thinking, this is a warped idea!”
