Since last week, when the convoy of former military head of state, Muhammadu Buhari, was attacked by gunmen, his residence in Kaduna has been playing host to several guests. On Tuesday, some stalwarts of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), paid him a visit. Those who were in Kaduna to see Buhari include the former governor of Lagos State and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former interim national chairman Chief Bisi Akande and national publicity secretary of the party Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
The men visited to commiserate with the retired general but also reportedly discussed other national issues. However, the meeting held behind closed doors for over an hour, and afterwards, they all chose not to speak with the press.
Before leaving Buhari’s Kaduna home, Tinubu shook hands with all the newsmen who were waiting, but chose not to take questions.
Also, General Buhari did not speak to journalists. He said, “I have issued a statement before and I cannot say anything contrary to that.”
