Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC's presidential candidate, is in good health, according to the party's deputy national publicity secretary, Hon. Yakubu Ajaka, and is not travelling for medical treatment.
After Tinubu failed to show up for the peace agreement signed by presidential contenders in the upcoming 2023 elections, questions were raised regarding his location.
The PUNCH also noted on Sunday that Tinubu denied rumours that he had dropped out of the run for president in 2023 in a tweet. A video that accompanied the tweet showed him exercising on a fitness bike.
Hon. Ajaka revealed that Tinubu was healthy in a statement released Sunday night after visiting the APC standard bearer in London.
He said, “Contrary to the widespread speculation in the public space which was hugely circulated by our political opponents that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu was on a medical trip in London. It is totally false.”
The party chieftain said that Tinubu was in the country to meet with different interest groups for the advancement of the country, saying “he is hale and hearty.”
He added that Tinubu was a man of resounding political and administrative experience, who had a sound and vast understanding of Nigeria’s diversity and would deploy this knowledge into leadership when elected.
He stressed that among other things, the APC presidential candidate would deploy his stern desire to unify the nation and inclusion of youths to drive the policy of the country.
Hon. Ajaka added that among those jostling for the role of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria at the 2023 general election, the APC’s standard bearer stood tall with a very humbling track record.
