National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has denied meeting with the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in London over his interrogation by the Department of State Security Services (DSS).
Oshiomhole said if he wanted to discuss with Tinubu, there was no need for him to go to London as reported in some media as he could easily see him in Lagos.
Addressing journalists in Benin shortly after attending the inter-denominational service marking Gov. Godwin Obaseki’s second year in office, the embattled APC chairman said there was no truth to the report.
“What am I doing in London? Why will I go to London to see Tinubu when I can see him in Lagos?
“We don’t have issues to resolve in London. So there was no need for us to meet there. The leader of the party, President Buhari, I have access to the villa all the time. I don’t need to go to London to see my leader through the queen,” he said.
He slammed the media for ‘faking the news to defend a falsehood’ and called on aggrieved aspirants from the primaries to learn from President Buhari who contested for the presidency three times without losing hope and that there was no way he could make all the contestants win at the primaries.
