The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has denied reports that he traveled to seek medical treatment in London, the United Kingdom.
Tinubu Reveals Why He Travelled Abroad
On Friday, unconfirmed reports emerged that the APC chieftain travelled to London for his usual medical treatment over his failing health.
However, in a statement by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, the APC leader said he’s in “excellent spirits”, adding travelled to the UK for meetings and consultations, and that he will return to Nigeria next week.
The statement reads, “Asiwaju Tinubu is in fine health and excellent spirits. The speculations in a national newspaper and on social media are just what they are: unfounded and untrue speculations.”
“Asiwaju’s trip to the UK is not to rest or because of any illness. While abroad, Asiwaju is maintaining a vigorous schedule of meetings and consultations on a range of important matters.
“Whether at home or abroad, the daily schedule of Asiwaju is vibrant and full. Most people couldn’t sustain his high level of activity. Asiwaju will return to Nigeria next week once this set of meetings and talks abroad is completed.”
This is comes less than four months after Tinubu, who recently declared his presidential ambition, returned to Nigeria from a three-month medical trip to the United Kingdom where he had undergone knee surgery and “rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy”.
