Tinubu’s aide explains meeting with Atiku at Abuja airport

Tinubu-Atiku

Tunde Rahman, the media aide to All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader, Bola Tinubu, has insisted there is nothing wrong his principal and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar meeting at the Abuja airport on Friday.

Viral videos showed Tinubu exchanging pleasantries with Atiku, a presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)in the 2019 elections.

Atiku just returned to the country after months of staying abroad.

Many social media users were surprised at the meeting of the two chieftains who belonged to different political parties in the country.

Commenting on the meeting via his Twitter handle on Saturday, Rahman wrote, “On the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu – Alhaji Atiku Abubakar video at Abuja Airport. It was a chance meeting at the airport in Abuja. Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar had arrived first and was in his car about to leave when Asiwaju arrived.

“As he was informed about him, Asiwaju walked up to Atiku vehicle to exchange pleasantries with him.

“Those making an issue out of this noble gesture should have a rethink. For the life of me, are they saying if two persons know each other and are friends, they must not greet each other as mature persons again because they find themselves in opposing political parties? If that’s their thinking, this is a warped idea!”

The Blues become the third English side to win the Champions League on two occasions, after Liverpool (2004-05 and 2018-19) and Manchester United (1998-99 and 2007-08).

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, is the third different German manager to win the UEFA Champions League in the last three seasons (Jurgen Klopp 2019, Hans-Dieter Flick 2020).

It’s the first time the European Cup/Champions League has been won in three consecutive years by three different managers of the same nationality since 1979-80 to 1981-82 (Brian Clough, Bob Paisley, Tony Barton).

It combines a unique-for-Nollywood story with very good & effective story-telling. Serenades everything in great acting & serves them to you accompanied by slices of humor from Josh2funny that are - Surprise! Surprise! - ACTUALLY FUNNY. Yes. Shocking! But his comedy actually works in 'Lockdown'. Good thing he doesn't appear in his usual state & attire.

Ultimately, 'Lockdown'...
