On June 2nd, 2022, Tinubu had made comments in an APC gathering holding in Abeokuta, Ogun State. However in reaction to that, The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Adamu, has claimed that the party is not comfortable with the comments made by the Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu. In his words ;
“We may punish him (Tinubu) for his utterances against the President.
He (Tinubu) went as far as saying how Gen. Muhammadu Buhari went to him, citing instances of even prostrating in tears begging him to endorse him and to support him for the presidency. He claimed Buhari went to him.
Though he is the president, he belongs to everybody. It is amazing how a fellow APC person would make that kind of comment in that kind of circumstances about the president. We take exception to this. It has shown that he does not show any appreciable level of respect for the office of Mr President.
Therefore we want to make it public that we are saddened by what we saw in the video, in that reportàge and we condemn it in the strongest of terms.
We do hope that he would never say that kind of again, particularly of the APC extraction to make such kinds of comments.
Yes, yesterday we saw some part of a retraction but that effort is not adequate. It is not sincere. It is not in-depth enough. It doesn’t wipe out the impression that that event has left in our minds.”Adamu said
