Despite failing Nigerians in terms of fulfilling his campaign promises, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu on Sunday described President Muhammadu Buhari as an exceptional leader.

Tinubu disclosed this after a meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa.



According to the former Lagos State Governor, he was at the villa to thank the President for visiting him in London where he sought medical treatment.

“I came to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for visiting me in London when I had a knee surgery. He demonstrated empathy. He is an exceptional leader,” he said.

During campaign ahead of the 2015 presidential election, Buhari had promised to curb corruption and fix insecurity and unemployment. 

But after over six years in office, Buhari has failed to keep his promises to Nigerians. 

SaharaReporters had reported how Buhari visited Tinubu in London, United Kingdom in August.

His close aides were however not happy with the pictures released by the Presidency showing the former Lagos State Governor with a walking stick during the visit.

Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad had posted some photos on Facebook and captioned them, “President Muhammadu Buhari this evening in London, the United Kingdom, visited Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

In the photos, Tinubu was seen leaning on a walking stick as he posed for shots with the President.

“Tinubu and his people are not happy that President Buhari brought NTA (Nigerian Television Authority- government-owned station) and others to visit him,” a source had told SaharaReporters.

“When Lagos governor, (Babajide) Sanwo-Olu and (Abiodun) Faleke (federal lawmaker) visited him, nothing revealed he had a surgery or was sick. But the way Buhari had his photo ops handled by the Villa was not what he (Tinubu) bargained for.

“They felt betrayed that such pictures showing him with a walking stick would be released. Note that all the pictures were released by the Presidency.”
