National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has opened up on the viral video of him meeting with former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar in Abuja.

Tinubu said he only exchanged pleasantries with the former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the airport while cautioning Nigerians making an “issue” out of the meeting.

Recall that the former Lagos State governor had met and exchanged pleasantries with Atiku, who had arrived from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), at the same time that Tinubu was within Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport premises in Abuja on Friday.

Upon his arrival, Tinubu had walked towards Atiku as he alighted from his vehicle and they exchanged pleasantries.

But some Nigerians while reacting to the exchange of pleasantries, cautioned others against trusting politicians.

However, Tinubu has asked those who are not happy that he greeted Atiku to have a rethink because they are friends.

He made the remarks through his spokesman, Tunde Rahman.

In a tweet titled: “On the @AsiwajuTinubu @atiku Video at Abuja Airport,” Rahman wrote: “Former Vice President @atiku had arrived first and was in his car about to leave when @AsiwajuTinubu arrived.

“As he was informed about him, @AsiwajuTinubu walked up to @atiku vehicle to exchange pleasantries with him.

“Those making an issue out of this noble gesture should have a rethink. For the life of me, are they saying if two persons know each other and are friends, they must not greet each other as mature persons again because they find themselves in opposing political parties? If that’s their thinking, this is a warped idea!”

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
