Bola Tinubu Is Not Dead Or Hospitalised, Says Aide
Tunde Rahman, Special Adviser on Media to National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has on Saturday, July 31 denied media reports claiming his principal is dead or hospitalized abroad.
Earlier today, there were reports online claiming the former Lagos state governor is receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment in a hospital abroad.
There had been speculations over Tinubu’s health, especially with the APC leader visibly absent at recent political events. His absence was a talking point due to his reported ambition to run for president in 2023.
During last Saturday’s local government election in Lagos, party supporters and journalists, who were hopeful to see Tinubu cast his vote, were told he had travelled out of the country. He was also absent during Saturday’s APC ward congress in the state.
Speaking about the death rumor, Tunde Rahman, in a statement on Saturday said Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, is “fine, hale and hearty.”
He is not in any hospital. He has no medical problem that would require hospitalisation. Yes, he is out of the country at the moment. He will be back shortly.
Rahman said any time his principal travels out out of the country, “the next thing some mischievous people would say is he is sick, hospitalised or has died.”
Read his full statement below;
His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is fine. He is hale and hearty. He is not in any hospital. He has no medical problem that would require hospitalisation.
Yes, he is out of the country at the moment. He will be back shortly. Anytime he travels out of the country, the next thing some mischievous people would say is he is sick, hospitalized, or has died.
It is shameful that perpetrators of this evil are not deterred by the fact that each time this fake news has been propagated, they have been proven wrong.
Who really is afraid of Asiwaju Tinubu? Those wishing Asiwaju Tinubu evil or dead should be careful. They should know the matter of life and death is in the hand of only God Almighty.
