National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is absent at the ongoing meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party in Abuja.
Also, former interim National Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande was also not present at the meeting.
Both leaders of the party have apparently not hiden their dissatisfaction with the national assembly leadership election held on June 9.
President Muhammadu Buhari has advised the All Progressives Congress lawmakers in the National Assembly to accept the supremacy of their party the interest of democracy and the country.
In his opening remarks at the ongoing NEC meeting, President Buhari advised the lawmakers to put their personal interests aside, and do the bidding of the party.
The NEC meeting is attended by the leaders of the party as well as the National Assembly leaders.
Buhari said: “Whatever your personal interests put them in your pocket. Let APC work. Let the system work. I appeal to you to accept the superiority of the party. I cannot confine myself in Sambisa forest and refuse to participate in the meeting because I respect the superiority of the party.”
The fact is that Buhari and his group have badly sidelined the King maker Asiwaju Tinubu who is yet to recover from the shock despite all paper written agreements signed by Buhari himself when he approached Tinubu from CPC.
Tinubu is said to be considering many options including going back to AC.
