APC Presidential Spokesman has opened up on Bola Tinubu state of health.
Newsonline reports that as Nigerians continue to speculate about the state of health of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the spokesman of the campaign council, Mr Bayo Onanuga, has revealed the true state of Tinubu’s health.
The clarifications made by Bayo Onanuga came against the backdrop that speculation became rife when Tinubu was said to have travelled out of Nigeria to attend to his health, a development that made the former Lagos State governor send his running mate, Alhaji Kashim Shettima to stand in for him at the Peace Accord meeting attended by all presidential candidates in Abuja on Thursday.
According to Bayo Onanuga, there is nothing to fear about Tinubu’s health. He maintained that Tinubu is fit to go through the campaign rigour and can manage the affairs of Nigeria if elected President in 2023.
He, therefore, advised Nigerians to disregard the fake rumour being peddled by those who are intimidated by Tinubu’s robust campaign strategies.
Onanuga who dropped his admonition on his Facebook wall wrote”
Here is a fake photo of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu forwarded to me just now, another handiwork of purveyors of deep fake. Whoever is behind this malicious falsehood will face the judgment of God at the right time. The man in the photo does not look like Asiwaju, except for his baldness. The man is fatter. Tinubu is slimmer. Look at the frame of his glasses. it is certainly not Tinubu’s trademark frame.
Let me assure Nigerians who genuinely want to know Tinubu’s whereabouts. He is in London, in his house. Tinubu left Nigeria on Saturday night for a short break and in readiness for what will certainly be a gruelling campaign. I saw him and spoke with him two hours before he left. He was hale and hearty. He was not ill. He didn’t go to treat any ailment. We spoke today at about 2 pm. And he told me how his one-week retreat has not made any difference. He was still working like in Nigeria. Today, he still burnt his candle till 4.30 a.m Nigerians should stop spreading rumours about Tinubu, who by the grace of God and fellow Nigerians, will be elected our leader next February. We should learn from the divine fate of the man who wished Tinubu dead.
