The All Progressives Congress (APC) has assured Nigerians that there was no rift between President Muhamamdu Buhari and his vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, while addressing a press conference at the party’s national headquarters on Thursday, denied claims of a faceoff between the duo, describing it as “mere gossips.”
According to him, the party had more important issues of governance to address, than continue to respond to fallacies.
“How do you determine a crack? The vice president had been sent out to represent the president at an international event, after PDP saw a crack; the vice president presided over the FEC meeting just on Wednesday this week.
“Is that part of the PDP’s crack? Let us stop this joke. We know we have challenges in this country, let us face these challenges,” he said.
