The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that two of the pictures had shown the president and Tinubu on a dining table with varieties of eatables and drinks while the president was seen in the two other pictures escorting his guest.
NAN reports that the sudden appearance of Tinubu at the Presidential Villa had finally put to rest the reported ‘political misunderstandings’ between the president and the APC leader.
Tinubu’s absence during the last President’s visit to Lagos shortly before his 10-day private visit to London was misinterpreted in some quarters.
Similarly, President Buhari’s inability to attend 2019 Tinubu’s colloquium at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, to mark his 67th birthday, was squally misinterpreted by some social commentators.
