National leader of APC, Bola Tinubu

The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday revealed why he did not attend yesterday’s national caucus meeting of the APC presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja. 

He said that some young Nigerians, ahead of his birthday, organized an event in Lagos on Monday, hence the need for him to honour them with his presence.

Speaking through his spokeman, Tunde Rahman while speaking on RayPower FM Radio programme said, “Yesterday, a group of younger ones put together a programme for him where they were talking about their impression of him as a leader, as a motivator.

“You needed to be there; it was so inspiring. You know these younger ones were talking about what they feel Asiwaju stands for. What they think about Asiwaju. I think that was what kept him away from Abuja. He couldn’t be in Lagos at that event and be in Abuja at the same time.”

When asked why his principal would sacrifice APC caucus meeting for an event put together in celebration of his birthday, Mr Rahman said, “I did not tell you these young ones came to visit him.

“They organized a programme in celebration of his birthday. I think it was only fit and proper that he honoured them (with his presence) the way they honoured him too. You needed to be there. He was the celebrant and everything was around him too.

“So, I do not know why you would think that is not equally important as well. Don’t also forget that the caucus meeting he did not attend is an advisory body. The caucus is an advisory body. So that he did not attend the caucus meeting should not be a thing that we will make a lot of noise about.”
