According to information reaching Jowanoline,it appears that President Muhammadu Buhari after securing his second term in office has recoiled to his “I belong to everyone and I belong to no one” words made by him during his inaugural address following his victory against the then President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015.
According to reports made available to Igbere Tv, President Muhammadu Buhari has refused to meet with the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomole and chieftains of the APC.
It is on good authority that President Muhammadu Buhari following his election victory has become suddenly unavailable and/or accessible to the APC National chairman and other chieftains such as Bola Tinubu.
President Buhari recent 10day visit to the United Kingdom depicted the symptoms of the unfolding drama. This is as Adamu Oshiomole boarded a flight alongside Bola Tinubu with a list of curriculum vitae belonging to APC chieftains.
Their intention was to meet with President Buhari in London to present the curriculum vitae and to discuss the formation of the new cabinet.
According to reports made available to Igbere Tv, associates of President Buhari denied Tinubu and Oshiomole access to meet with the President.
No reason was given to the two APC leaders. The two leaders were said to be in shocked and in disbelief. Both Tinubu and Oshiomole left London for Nigeria a day before President Buhari, devastated.
The rebuff of Bola Tinubu and Adams Oshiomole marks a significant milestone in the further widening of the divide and/or crack in the national APC between the Tinubu led group and the El Rufai led group. It is clear the El Rufai led group anticipate to play the major role in formulating the next face of the APC against 2023 presidential elections. El Rufai is expected to contest for president. This is while the Tinubu led group had already begun auguring for the same position.
The divide in turn is expected to have impact in the make-up of the new Buhari cabinet.
Inner source within the camp indicates that the El Rufai led group have virtually cornered President Buhari and have successfully blocked out the Tinubu group. The sudden silence from the Oshiomole camp is attributed to the cold shoulder received from the President.
Efforts by our journalists to get a reply Comrade Adams Oshiomole’s media aide has proved abortive.
