Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), played host to Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari at his Bourdillon residence in the Ikoyi area of Lagos on Saturday.
According to Sunday Dare, spokesman of Tinubu, the president’s wife visited the notable politician to commiserate with him over the death of Haliru Dantoro, emir of Borgu kingdom in Niger state.
Dare said the former governor of Lagos commended Buhari’s wife, who was accompanied by the wives of different governors, “on her Style and commitment to Nigeria”.
Tinubu is known to be very close to the late monarch, who gave him his famous traditional title –‘Jagaban Borgu’ – in 2006. Both men were members of the upper chamber of the national assembly between 1992 and 1993.
