The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, had denied meeting with the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the United Kingdom over his encounter with the Department of State Services.
Oshiomhole, a former Governor of Edo State, made the denial on Sunday in Benin, the Edo State capital, after an interdenominational thanksgiving service to mark the second year in office of his successor, Governor Godwin Obaseki.
He said: “What am I doing in London?
“Why will I go to London to see Tinubu when I can see him in Bourdillon?
“What are the issues between him and me that we are to resolve in London?
“The leader of the party, which is President Muhammadu Buhari, I have access to (at) the Villa all the time.
“I do not need to go to London to see my leader, through the Queen.
“The truth is that once a news reporter succeeds in preaching one lie, it is obliged to preach several lies to sustain the one lie.
“Some of the media, having allowed the opposition to misuse them to publish fake news, they now feel obliged to fake more news.
“But I am here and I am fine.”
