While speaking at Government House in Kano, during a condolence visit to the governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, on the death of elder statesman, Maitama Sule, leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu, said President Muhammadu Buhari deserves the prayers of Nigerians over his health challenges.
The influential politician who spoke further, said that Buhari has been honest with his health challenges, adding that the president's health issues should not be politicised.
“Although I am not the spokesperson of the president and I am also not in the presidential team, the president is healing very fast and God willing, he is coming back very soon”.
Speaking on the faceoff between the National Assembly and the Executive, Tinubu said it is a normal thing and would soon be resolved.
“I had been there before and what is happening is a normal interface, it is normal in democracy. The Executive has its role and the Legislature has its own role, they should work for the betterment of the country.”
Tinubu praised the government of Ganduje and endorsed the governor for a second term in 2019, adding that the facts on ground and the matured style of governance of Ganduje have automatically earned him a second term in office.
He said the APC was following with keen interests the activities of Ganduje because of the strategic importance of the state to the nation.
“And so far, Ganduje has not betrayed our trust. In fact, he has done wonderfully well”.
