Reports have it that Tinubu was at the airport premises when Atiku arrived from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the APC National Leader walked towards him as he alighted from his vehicle to greet him.

Despite political leanings and different party affiliations, both prominent politicians are known to be longtime allies.

But some Nigerians while reacting to the greetings, cautioned others against trusting politicians as there might something going on underground between the two politicians.

Reacting to this, Tinubu has asked those who are not happy with the greetings to have a rethink because they are friends.

He made the remarks through his spokesman, Tunde Rahman.

Rahman in the statement released in a tweet posted via his official Twitter page stated:

“On the @AsiwajuTinubu @atiku Video at Abuja Airport,” Rahman wrote: “Former Vice President @atiku had arrived first and was in his car about to leave when @AsiwajuTinubu arrived.

“As he was informed about him, @AsiwajuTinubu walked up to @atiku vehicle to exchange pleasantries with him.

“Those making an issue out of this noble gesture should have a rethink. For the life of me, are they saying if two persons know each other and are friends, they must not greet each other as mature persons again because they find themselves in opposing political parties? If that’s their thinking, this is a warped idea.
