So, finally President Muhammad Buhari has reacted to the resignation of All Progressives Congress, APC chieftain, Atiku Abubakar on Friday last week.
Although this would not be in the way you expect it, the President’s reaction came with some sympathy to the party’s leadership.
On Monday, the President sympathised with the National Chairman of the ruling APC, John Oyegun, over the exit of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar from the party.
Buhari chose the venue of the inauguration of the Ama Pepple-led National Minimum Wage Committee to convey his heart-feltsympathy.
The President made his position known while acknowledging dignitaries that attended the event before his remarks.
Turning to Odigie-Oyegun, Buhari said, “Accept my sympathy for losing a senior member of your party.”
Although he did not mention a name, it was obvious that the President was referring to Atiku.
The former vice-president was one of those who contested the party’s presidential ticket ahead of the 2015 general elections and lost to Buhari.
Buhari and his spokesmen have avoided speaking on Atiku’s exit since the news broke on Friday.
