Ahmed Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has reacted to a Sun Newspaper article which claimed that he was colluding with the Senate President to scuttle President Buhari’s administration.
In a press statement, Bola Tinubu refuted the claims and berated The Sun Newspaper for trying to tarnish his image.
“The SUN Newspaper has taken a sad excursion from journalism into the realm of gothic tales and political slander. That sheet has turned itself into a harbor of perjury and malice in telling tales by moonlight. In venturing to publish the recent story that Asiwaju Tinubu has conspired with Senator Saraki to thwart the Buhari administration, the SUN Newspaper has descended to the lowest and darkest rungs of journalism ethics. The stench of the piece and motives behind it are too noxious to ignore.”
Tinubu also denied claims that he was unhappy with the ministerial list.
“The idea of an alleged conspiracy between Tinubu and Saraki against the President is an execrable lie. Without any proof except the veil of innuendo and some hatemongers masquerading as presidency sources, the story proclaims that the government is surveilling Asiwaju Tinubu because of his purported unhappiness about the ministerial list.” the statement said.
