There were speculations that the APC National leader, Bola Tinubu and the former APC National chairman, Bisi Akande, were summoned to the presidential villa by Pres. Buhari following the release of a statement by former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Tinubu has now denied that claim. He said the visit had been scheduled since last week.

Tinubu’s, Akande’s Visit Unconnected with Obasanjo’s Statement
Today’s visit by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Chief Bisi Akande to the Presidential Villa was scheduled last week.
President Buhari periodically schedules talks with Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande, as he does with other Nigerians and APC figures, to discuss substantive issues pertaining to the governance of the country and matters concerning the party.
This visit was one such meeting. As such, the meeting had nothing to do with the statement of former President Obasanjo.
It is totally unconnected. At the time of the meeting, Asiwaju Tinubu and Baba Akande were even unaware that President Obasanjo had released his statement.
