Describing the recent reports as false, the presidency in a series of tweets posted on the federal government's Twitter account on Tuesday, March 24, stated that there is no rift between Buhari and his strong ally.

According to Garba Shehu, the senior special adviser on media, Tinubu doesn't frequent the Aso Rock Villa is because he is not a cabinet member of the government.

The presidential aide said that the fact Tinunu is not around the Villa every day does not make him less of a friend to the president and the administration.

While describing the APC leader as one of the most respected political leaders in the country, Shehu noted that the duo have a very strong commitment to bringing change.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Buhari will chair the colloquium to celebrate Tinubu's 69th birthday.

The president will preside virtually over the event which is being organised by the office of the vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo.
