National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). Bola Ahmed Tinubu has denied reports his recent meeting with President Buhari was centered on politics and his ambitions for 2023.

Speaking in a chat with journalists after the meeting with the President, the former Lagos state governor said he was only at the presidential villa to welcome Buhari who had just returned from Saudi Arabia after participating in lesser Hajj, according to The Cable.

He also added that he needed to see the president to thank him for visiting him in London where he underwent knee surgery.

He noted: “Only to thank the president, first of all, for his visit to my residence in London after the surgery and wishing me well, lifting my spirit and indeed what an exceptional leader will do to collaborate. "So that’s what I came for and to welcome him back from the trip from Saudi. No politics, just a courtesy call to thank him in a big way, that’s all.”
