Presidential aspirant Bola Tinubu has met with Ade Omole, leader of the United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the Nigeria Diaspora for Asiwaju (NDA) team in London.

The meeting was to consult with the NDA and critical APC stakeholders in the UK on Tinubu’s 2023 presidential aspiration, Omole’s personal assistant AbdulRasaq Danjuma said in a statement on Sunday.

Danjuma said that contrary to media reports, Tinubu was hale and healthy.

”Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is in good health and excellent spirits.

“He is in good health, hale and hearty. He will be returning to Nigeria within a few days after necessary consultations here in the UK,” he said.

According to him, Omole briefed Tinubu on progressives’ activities in the UK and other issues pertaining to national development back home.

He said Omole also briefed Tinubu on how patriotic Nigerians in the diaspora were helping out from their countries of residence to ensure a better Nigeria for all.

He further quoted Omole as saying that progressives in the UK had been collaborating with other patriotic Nigerians globally to work hand in glove with their counterparts in Nigeria to promote peace, unity and development.

“We are working round the clock to support the President Muhammadu Buhari APC-led administration and contribute our quota to taking Nigeria to the next level,” Omole said.

He said the meeting with the APC national leader espoused the commitment of the Nigerian diaspora community to nation-building.

Director-general of NDA Akin Badeji, also in the statement, relayed ongoing activities both in the diaspora and in Nigeria to ensure the actualisation of a Tinubu presidency in 2023, adding that the group would not relent until its desires were met.

The meeting was attended by Joseph Adebola, Kenny Ojutalayo, Oladapo Habeeb, Edith Nwachukwu, Rakiya Abubakar, Ronke Tomori and Lanre Adegun among other APC critical stakeholders in the UK.
