President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday had a close-door meeting with a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Tinubu had on Friday met with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Abuja.
Fielding questions after the meeting, Tinubu said he was in the State House to thank the President for visiting him in London after his surgery.
He said the President’s visit to him was a mark of exceptional leadership.
“Only to thank the President, first of all, for his visit to my residence in London after the surgery and wishing me well, lifting my spirit and indeed what an exceptional leader will do to collaborate.
“So, that’s what I came for and to welcome him back from the trip from Saudi. No politics, just courtesy call to thank him in a big way, that’s all,” said.
Asked what the President’s response was, he said the President was happy he was around, adding that he was not obliged to speak on other things they discussed.
