Senate President Bukola Saraki

President of the Nigerian Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki did not snub Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, national leader of All Progressives Congress, APC during the inauguration of the new governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu last week.

Mr Bamikole Omishore, Special Adviser New Media to the Senate President said this in reaction to a video making the rounds on social media insinuating that the former Governor of Kwara State snubbed Tinubu in Akure.

“On the video circulating social media that President of the Senate, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki allegedly snubbed one of the party leaders of APC, in the person of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, that definitely did not happen.

“Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu was granting an interview when the President of the Senate greeted him and others but he could not respond so well at that particular time.

“That is why Tinubu called Saraki and the Senate President replied with a courtesy and reminded him that he greeted him but didn’t want to distract him from the interview.

Omosore urged Nigerians to watch the video to see  that the alleged snubbing did not happen.
