The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has denied opposing Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo’s rumored presidential ambition.
Tinubu was said to be in tandem with the alleged onslaught on the Office of the Vice President by the Presidency cabal.
Unconfirmed reports had suggested that President Muhammadu Buhari in a recent meeting with Tinubu and a prominent chieftain of the APC, Bisi Akande, expressed displeasure with some actions of the Vice President while asking his guests to talk the VP into resigning.
The APC national leader was reported to have nodded along with the President’s request, stating that nothing was wrong with Osinbajo’s resignation if found culpable.
However, in his response to the report, Tinubu through his media aide, Tunde Rahman, described it as politicized and untrue.
“There is no truth in the allegation that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is against the Vice President. There is nothing stopping the Vice President from nursing a presidential ambition. If he wants to run, let him run.
“We are all watching and waiting. It is all a bundle of lies that Asiwaju Tinubu is unhappy about that. People are just politicising the situation. Tinubu cannot muscle his own boy in any way”, Rahman said.
