National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has restated his confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari stating that his confidence was never in doubt.

Speaking with journalists after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed said that the APC led government is still on course with just a few things left to attain happiness and development of Nigeria.

While stating that the meeting which was about the country and leadership as a whole ended fruitfully, he stressed that reports of a rift in his relationship with the President was fake nes.

According to him, "...I have confidence in the President there is no doubt about that. We worked hard to bring about the government, there are certain things that are unpredictable and those are things that can lean itself to gossips, insinuations and all of that.

"But once you create leadership and is functioning you don't have to babysit that leadership unless there is a loss of confidence and I don't have that. You know me. I'm not known to shy away from talking my mind and rebelling if it is necessary and taking charge of things that I believe are necessary. What is the myth in this leadership thing? What is cabal? Its a myth. We are the party of the people for the people and by the people and this is democratic environment.

"Each of us have our roles to play and that is why we are playing it. I don't believe in myth, I believe in confidence building, the trust that we have in the President. In the journey of democracy you are going to have twists and turns, you are going to have conflicts.

"Conflicts resolution mechanisms is inbuilt on how you handle your party and the governance and the party are joined by the hips."

Although he did not confirm if the agenda of the meeting included the party's NEC meeting billed to hold on Tuesday, he stated that the APC government was doing just fine

"Can you go back to the history of 16 years of the PDP? APC government is on course and will remain on course and we will remain focused to those necessary things about development, welfare and progress of our people.

"It's not easy to face the challenges and the well that was dug, sinkhole that we inherited. But we are sorting that one out gradually so few steps we will find happiness and development in the future of our country.
