Tinubu Travels Out Of The Country Over Health Issues After Declaring Intentions To Run For 2023 Presidency
All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, has travelled out of Nigeria weeks after declaring his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election.
A member of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Movement’s Working Committee said on Friday that the former Lagos State governor travelled overseas to rest and watch over his failing health.
However, Tinubu’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman, in a text response to an inquiry by The PUNCH on Friday. He said the Tinubu is out of the country.
He said, “Asiwaju’s trip to the UK (United Kingdom) 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. This speaks to his exceptional intellectual energy and his commitment to achievement.”
“Asiwaju will return to Nigeria next week once this set of meetings and talks abroad is completed,” he added.
