President Muhammadu Buhari has debunked claims of a bitter rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over the leadership crisis in the National Assembly.
Buhari said he is working with all leaders of the party including Tinubu to deliver his electoral mandate to Nigerians.
Buhari, who spoke through his Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media, Mallam Garba Shehu, described the emergence of Senator Ike Ekweremadu as Deputy Senate President in the Senate with majority APC members as unfortunate.
Shehu stated that the challenge before the key leaders of the APC transcends the leadership tussle in the National Assembly as they meet regularly to discuss how best to meet the expectations of Nigerians.
He said the perception by a section of the populace that the President is slow in effecting change is misplaced as he was taking his time to sort out the huge mess left behind by the Jonathan administration.
He said Buhari had been busy working out an action plan that would include “taming the monster of corruption, assets recovery and making the power sector functional”.
