Tinubu didn’t go to London on medical trip – APC

Bola Tinubu

Deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Yakubu Ajaka has debunked speculations that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is on a medical trip.

Tinubu’s whereabouts has been a matter of public concern following his absence from public events including the first signing of the Peace Accord by presidential candidates in Abuja.

On Sunday, however, Tinubu posted a video of himself on social media doing exercise, stating that he is healthy.

Ajaka, who visited Tinubu in London, disclosed in a statement on Sunday evening that Tinubu was healthy.

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 spokesman 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.

Ajaka 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.
