Atiku, Tinubu meet again in Abuja
The 2019 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo; the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; the Chief of Staff to the President, Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), Abba Kyari; and other political heavyweights met in Abuja on Saturday.
Others present during the gathering included a former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Alhaji Nuhu Ribadu; Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari; a former Governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wammako; a former Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun and a former Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi
They were seen engaged in lively and cheerful discussions as they threw banters among themselves.
The gathering was at the Al-Nur Mosque in Abuja during the wedding fatiha of Ribadu’s son, Ismaila, and his now wife, Amina.
Atiku through his Media Adviser, Mr Paul Ibe, in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja said his meeting with Tinubu, Osinbajo, Kyari and other political stalwarts, many of whom are from the APC, had no political undertone.
He noted that political heavyweights across divides had also attended the wedding fatiha of his son, Mustapha, and his then bride, Afrah Mubarak El-Nafaty, at the Sultan Bello Mosque, Kaduna on December 14, 2019.
Ibe said, “When people are invited to a wedding fatiah, nobody should make undue interpretation beyond that, otherwise every other meeting at every other wedding or social event will be interpreted one way or the other.
“How can there be a political undertone? Has wedding become a place for political meeting? The same way people across political divides attended the wedding fatiah of Atiku’s son two weeks ago in Kaduna is the same way he attended Ribadu’s son’s wedding fatiah.”
This is the second time Atiku and Tinubu have met in public in Abuja after the Supreme Court’s judgment on October 30, 2019 upholding Buhari’s election.
