The former Governor of Lagos state, Bola Tinubu has returned to the country and debunked rumours of ill-health.
All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Bola Tinubu has returned to Nigeria amidst reports that he is seriously ill.
The former governor of Lagos State arrived the Murtala Muhammed International Airport yesterday, September 18, 2014, and addressed newsmen saying:
“I’m as fit as a fiddle,” “There was nothing wrong before I left the country. We had the Osun gubernatorial election and I’d planned a long vacation and some other research assignments in the political arena. It was to learn from people who had experienced the development of opposition parties in the past.”
“I don’t have to disclose to people my vacation location. But it was very shocking and sad that there were speculations about my health. This is a sign of the lack of trust people have for leadership in the country. When I had the knee problem, I disclosed to Nigerians that I was going for a knee surgery and I came back. Even then, they started peddling rumors.
“I don’t know whether some people deliberately insinuate that I have a medical problem. It seems like a deliberate falsehood to me. It is all lies. There was no day that I had the need for even Panadol since I left this country for this trip. I was very busy, reading and talking to people of great intelligence that I believe I could gain from politically.”
Tinubu also reportedly added that God would forgive those spreading rumours about his health.
