The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, dramatically exchanged handshake on Saturday.
This happened at a book launch in honour of the Emir of Gwandu, Alhaji Muhammadu Illiasu Bashar,
held at the Waziri Umaru Federal Polytechnic, Birnin-Kebbi.
The former Lagos Governor arrived the venue of the book launch in company of Governors Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State and Aminu Masari of Katsina State.
They were seated before Saraki’s arrival.
A mild drama, however, ensued when the Senate President arrived and went straight to greet Tinubu by extending his hand which threw other guests into laughter.
Tinubu also rose up instantly and stretched his hand towards him and both shook hands in a manner that drew applause from watching guests.
There have been rancour between the two APC chieftains since 2015 when Saraki became the Senate President.
