Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday met with the associates of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu in a bid to settle the feud between him and Tinubu, reports Vanguard.

Sources noted that the meeting deliberated on the alleged strained relationship between Buhari and Tinubu.

Also said to have been discussed were internal wrangling within the ruling APC, particularly in Ondo State.

The APC has been embroiled in crisis in Ondo State, after the party’s National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, allegedly overruled the party’s National Working Committee’s decision on the party’s governorship primaries and submitted the name of Rotimi Akeredolu as the party’s candidate in the election.

Tinubu according to News 24 had asked Oyegun to resign over what he called the latter’s anti-democratic handling of the  party affairs.

Oyegun in his response to Tinubu's accusation said he would meet with President Buhari before he would fully reply Tinubu.
