Abubakar Badaru, Jigawa State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Strategy and Contact Committee, has played down report of an alleged rift between President Buhari and former Governor of Lagos state Bola Tinubu.
Speaking during an interview on Channels Television, Badaru stated that the story was pushed to heat the polity.
“I think people wanted to see that and that will not happen. I believe it is all politics. President Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu and all the leaders of the party speak with one voice.
“We have pushed that story about President Buhari and Tinubu to certainly heat the polity. But it is not true. We know that the party is one indivisible and all the stakeholders are being carried along.”
