Former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said only people that are crazy will say he was not with President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
In a statement on Monday, Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, said mischief makers were behind the news that he did not visit the President.
The statement, signed by his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, said Tinubu was in London with the former Interim National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, to visit Buhari and that they met the President at the Abuja House.
The statement reads: “The report about the so-called denial of the visit is the handiwork of mischief- makers.
“I felt we should not dignify that with a response. That report beggars belief.
“Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande were in London. The reason they travelled to the United Kingdom was to see President Buhari.
“And they visited him last Thursday and held discussions with him at the Abuja House in London.
“After the visit, the President, as a mark of respect, saw off his guests to the door.
“Pictures were taken during and after the visit and released to the media by The Presidency.

“These pictures were international headlines. How can anybody in his or her right senses be saying there was no such visit? It’s simply crazy!”
In a similar vein, Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state, has affirmed that he visited President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
The President is said to be in London, receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
There have been controversy over a picture showing Amosun and the president in the United Kingdom, amid allegations an old image was edited to make it look recent.
However, on Monday at an event at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Amosun told journalists that he indeed visited the president in London.
