…denies rift with Aregbesola
National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, says the decision of the party’s chapter in Lagos State to dissolve all factions within its structure is aimed at promoting cohesion within the party in the state.
Tinubu also denied the existence of any feud between him and the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.
The APC national leader said this in a statement on Tuesday against the backdrop of the dissolution of the powerful and influential Mandate Group and the Justice Forum by the Governor’s Advisory Council.
According to Tinubu, “Today, the Governor’s Advisory Council, the highest decision-making body within the All Progressives Congress in Lagos State, passed a resolution calling for the disbandment of all factional groups within the party.
“This was to promote discipline, harmony and cohesion and engender party supremacy. The APC is one united political family in Lagos.”
The former governor added that there was no rift between himself and Aregbesola, saying, “The former governor of Osun State has been unswervingly and wholly committed to the progressive ideology of the Tinubu political family.
“There is no war, cold or hot, between them. There has never been and there will never be. Asiwaju believes in him and he believes in the APC leader.”
