Kemi Olunloyo, a self-acclaimed journalist, has claimed that there is a strained relationship between Seyi Tinubu and his father, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In a post on X, Olunloyo stated that the father and son are currently not on speaking terms, and their relationship has deteriorated to a state of significant discord.
She said the situation escalated to the point where President Tinubu raised his voice at Seyi in front of a select group within the presidency’s inner circle.
According to her, President Tinubu expressed concerns about his son’s actions, explicitly stating that he would not allow Seyi to “destroy his presidency.”
Olunloyo further stated that Seyi Tinubu has been active in offering contributions and suggestions, which have not been well-received by his father.
“Seyi Tinubu is locked in a major fight with his father, President Tinubu. They are not even on talking terms. Babanla malice.
“Jagaban shouted at him in front of the presidency’s inner circle, saying he won’t let Seyi “destroy his presidency.” BAT wants to run Nigeria his own way.
“I see nothing wrong in his son’s contribution or suggestion; after all, Ivanka and her husband were senior aides to Trump. Hope they end that squabble soon.”
Several All Progressives Congress (APC) supporters have reacted to the claims made by Olunloyo.
They accused the daughter of a former Oyo state governor of being disillusioned and fabricating the story.
One of such supporters, Fola Adu, wrote:
“This is pure lies from the pit of hell-madam stop misleading people with lies. Seyi was seen with the dad India discussing, so that’s what malice is to you?”
