Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party, said on Thursday that he was unaware of any attempts at reconciliation on Bola Tinubu’s part.
In order to meet with Atiku, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and other disgruntled candidates of political parties who ran in last Saturday’s presidential election, the All Progressives Congress established a reconciliation committee.
Rotimi Akeredolu, the governor of Ondo State, said the committee’s purpose is to put an end to their complaints and make sure that all parties collaborate with Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, for the development of Nigeria.
This information was revealed by Akeredolu in a statement issued on Wednesday by his chief press secretary, Richard Olatunde.
“The President-elect has set up committees to meet with the gentlemen who contested in the election for us to start the healing process. I belong to one of the committees. We are going to meet them and appeal to them so that we can work together,” the statement quoted Akeredolu as saying.
But when asked, during a press conference on Thursday in Abuja, to confirm if some APC governor visited him and they were turned back, Atiku said he was not aware of any such moves.
“Well, I am really not aware of that. I was home all day today I was not aware of any governor coming to see me,” the former vice president said.
