National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, on Friday replied a leader of the party and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over an allegation that he was undermining his efforts to reconcile members of the platform.
Tinubu had written to Oyegun, accusing him of undermining the assignment given to him by President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, Oyegun met with Buhari for 20 minutes at the State House, Abuja on Friday and thereafter issued a statement wishing Tinubu success in his assignments.
It reads: “I thank you for your letter dated February 21, 2018, for your prayers and good wishes for my health. I wish you the same and pray that our good God keeps you strong and grants you His peace. Let me once again formally congratulate you on the peace-making assignment Mr. President has entrusted you with.
“It is most challenging but I believe you will ultimately justify the confidence reposed in you by Mr. President. In this, you have my full support. Be assured, dear Asiwaju, of my highest regards now and always.”
Interestingly, Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, told journalists in Abuja that governors elected on the platform were solidly behind Oyegun.
