We called him severally to use all within his reach to make sure that wicked people did not divide Buhari and Tinubu since it will have negative consequences. Whether Adesina delivered the message or not is not important. What is vital is that we did what we ought to do at the time by drawing the attention of Mr. President to itâ€.
