Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said he did not deliberately stay away from during President Muhammadu Buhari’s projects commissioning in Lagos on Wednesday.
There were insinuations that Tinubu has shunned the event as a payback for the President’s absence at the colloquium organised last month to mark his 67th birthday.
However, speaking with Daily Independent, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Media said his principal missed the event because he is currently out of the country.
” Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not in town. He is currently out of the country. That was why he was not present at the occasion” he said.
