APC explains why President Tinubu’s meeting with Joe Biden was cancelled
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Natiexplainedhas explained why the speculated meeting between President Bola Tinubu and the United States President, Joe Biden, could not be held during the reNationsting of the United Nations’ General Assembly (UNGA) held in New York.
The APC clarification was in reaction to reports attributed to Phrank Shaibu, media aide to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, who accused the Tinubu administration of peddling falsehood.
In a statement, the national publicity secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, said there was no basis for interaction between the two leaders, having met at another world engagement, the G-20 Nations summit in India, before gathering world leaders in New York.
Morka further argued that the Tinubu administration has no reason to peddle falsehood or propaganda.
He noted, “President Tinubu is committed to ensuring an inclusive, honest, transparent and accountable governance system.
“The matter of the proposed meeting with United States of America President Joe Biden does not even require elaboration.
“Having met with President Tinubu on the sidelines of the G-20 Nations summit in India, another meeting with President Biden during the United Nation’s General Assembly (UNGA) had become unnecessary and was not even on President Tinubu’s schedule, contrary to preliminary indications on the matter.
“As the discerning people that we are, we remain confident that Nigerians will continue to differentiate between genuine, constructive and development-oriented criticisms and those driven by self-interest, mercenary considerations and disruptive political agenda.”
