Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, reiterated yesterday that he would not join issues with National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Saraki said while there’s been no meeting between the duo, he recognises Tinubu as one of the leaders, who contributed to the party’s victory in the general polls, adding that his efforts are now geared to ensuring APC’s success.
“I saw the statement said to be issued by Senator Tinubu over a story published by The Sun newspapers. I have decided not to join issues with Asiwaju Tinubu. However, I know that most Nigerians are aware that there has been no meeting or communication between me and Tinubu since I was elected Senate president. Therefore, I do not see any basis for a newspaper to report that we are both plotting to oppose the President, Muhammadu Buhari.
“I recognise Tinubu as one of the leaders of the APC who contributed so much to the victory of the party in the last election. Some other people also contributed and I believe the collective efforts made it possible for the first time in the history of our party for an opposition party to win the general elections,
“Let me state clearly that I remain a committed member of the APC and will do all in my power to ensure the party fulfil its promises to bring positive changes into the country.”
On Sunday, Tinubu debunked insinuations that he was plotting with Saraki against Buhari.
