The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said he's confident of President Muhammadu Buhari but won't talk about a re-election.

Tinubu made this known on Monday, October 30, 2017 while speaking with state house correspondents in Abuja after a meeting with the President.

Expressing his confidence in the ruling party and the president, Tinubu said: “Once you create leadership and it is functioning, you don’t have to babysit that leadership unless there is a loss of confidence and I don’t have that."

However, when queried about the recent support organisations drumming a second term for the President, the ex-governor of Lagos State simply said: “Don’t discuss that one with me.”

On his confidence of the ruling party, Tinubu said: “We are the party of the people for the people and by the people and this is a democratic environment. Each of us has our roles to play and that is why we are playing it… 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.

The APC government is on course and will remain on course. 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, the sinkhole that we inherited, but we are sorting that one out gradually.

President Buhari had met Tinubu on Monday, October 30, 2017 after a meeting with Saraki, Dogara and Oyegun.
