The National Leader of Nigeria's governing party, the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, angrily dismissed the curiosity on his support for Buhari's second term bid.
He stated this while speaking with State House correspondents in Abuja on Monday after a meeting with the President Buhari at the State House, Abuja.
Expressing confidence in Buhari, the former Lagos State Governor and a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria dismissed the rumored rift between him and the president.
APC-led government, according to the former Lagos governor, is on course will usher in happiness and development in no time in Nigeria.
He said: ''I just met with the President. Our discussion was fruitful, productive and it was about the country and leadership as a whole. And that got him excited and happy.”
On his alleged strained relations with Buhari, he had this to tell Nigerians.
“Fake news! I have confidence in this President. There is no doubt about that. We worked hard to bring about the government, there are certain things that are unpredictable and those are things that can lean itself to gossips, insinuations and all of that.” 

“But once you create leadership and is functioning you don’t have to babysit that leadership unless there is a loss of confidence and I don’t have that.
“You know me. I’m not known to shy away from talking my mind and rebelling if it is necessary and taking charge of things that I believe are necessary. What is the myth in this leadership thing? What is cabal? Its a myth. We are the party of the people for the people and by the people and this is democratic environment.
“Each of us have our roles to play and that is why we are playing it. I don’t believe in the myth, I believe in confidence building, the trust that we have in the president. In the journey of democracy you are going to have twists and turns, you are going to have conflicts.
“Conflicts resolution mechanisms is inbuilt on how you handle your party and the governance and the party are joined by the hips.” he said
Asked if he has gone to discuss or mend the crack in the ruling party and its performance so far to regenerate Nigeria and if he would support Buhari for a second term,  he retorted: “Did I tell you that? Why do you want to know? Are you a member of our party?”
 “Can you go back to the history of 16  years of the PDP? APC government is on course and will remain on course and we will remain focused to those necessary things about development, welfare and progress of our people.
“Its not easy to face the challenges and the well that was dug, sinkhole that we inherited. But we are sorting that one out gradually so few steps we will find happiness and development in the future of our country.
“Don’t discuss that one with me.”, dismissing the curiosity on whether he would endorse Buhari's second term bid.
