The pictures released by the Presidency showing the National Leader of the All Progres Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, with a walking stick when President Muhammadu Buhari visited him in London, United Kingdom (UK) has angered the former Lagos State Governor’s camp.
According to SaharaReporters, a source revealed that Tinubu and his close aides are not happy with the pictures released by the Presidency.
Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, posted some photos on Facebook on Thursday and captioned them: “President Muhammadu Buhari this evening in London, the United Kingdom, visited Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
In the photos, Tinubu was seen leaning on a walking stick as he posed for shots with the President.
“Tinubu and his people are not happy that President Buhari brought NTA (Nigerian Television Authority- government-owned station) and others to visit him,” a source told SaharaReporters.
“When Lagos governor, (Babajide) Sanwo-Olu and (Abiodun) Faleke (federal lawmaker) visited him, nothing revealed he had a surgery or was sick. But the way Buhari had his photo ops handled by the Villa was not what he (Tinubu) bargained for.
“They felt betrayed that such pictures showing him with a walking stick would be released. Note that all the pictures were released by the Presidency.”
