President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday tactically reacted to the exit of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar from the All Progressives Congress, Daily Trust reports.
The president expressed his sympathy to the national chairman of the ruling party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, over the loss of Atiku.
President Buhari did this inside the Council Chambers of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja shortly before inaugurating the Tripartite National Minimum Wage Committee.
The president faced Odigie-Oyegun and said: “accept my sympathy for losing a senior member of your party”.
Atiku had last Friday announced his exit from the ruling APC.
