APC Chieftain Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu and President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House - October 30th, 2017.

A national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Monday declined comments on the current clamour for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.

When asked an interview with State House correspondents, shortly after meeting behind closed doors with the President at the Presidential Villa, whether he agree with different groups and individuals calling on Buhari to seek re-election in 2019, Tinubu simply responded, “Don’t discuss that one with me.”

He said his discussion with Buhari which was about the country and leadership was fruitful and productive.

Tinubu described the claims that he is not happy with the President because he has been sidelined by a cabal as a fake news.

He said he had confidence in Buhari, hence, he did not have to be babysitting him.

The party chief, however, admitted that in democracy, there could be twists and turns as well as conflicts.

He said, “I have confidence in this President , there is no doubt about that.

“We worked hard to bring about the government. There are certain things that are unpredictable and those are things that can lean itself to gossips, insinuations and all of that.

“But once you create leadership and it is functioning, you don’t have to babysit that leadership unless there is a loss of confidence and I don’t have that.

“ You know me. I ’ve not known to shy away from talking my mind and rebelling if it is necessary and taking charge of things that I believe are necessary. What is the myth in this leadership thing ? What is cabal ? It is a myth .”
