Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and former governor of Lagos State, has admitted to having a difficult health condition, saying that his ” physiotherapy was dreadful. ”
Tinubu told this to members of the House of Representatives northern caucus who visited him in London on Friday, according to Punch.
” I am healthy because of God and people like you, ” the former governor told the throng, who had been in the United Kingdom for three months following knee surgery. The most painful aspect is the physiotherapy. ”
Since Tinubu’ s departure, President Muhammadu Buhari, Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, and Governors Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Babajide Sanwo- Olu (Lagos), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), and Kayode Fayemi have all paid visits to his London home (Ekiti).
According to NEWS DIRECT, Fayemi also revealed that Tinubu had surgery lately and that he (Fayemi) was in London to show solidarity. The governor said, ” He (Akeredolu) and I were in London together to see our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but it had nothing to do with presidential ambitions for 2023. ” We had no intention of going there for that reason.
” Asiwaju just underwent surgery, and it is simply proper etiquette or behavior, both in the part of the country where I grew up and in general, to show solidarity and support when a friend or elder is suffering health concerns.
” That is precisely what drew us there; we wanted to establish a relationship with him as an elder, a mentor, and a key figure in our political party at a time when he was in need. It was perfectly acceptable to pay him a courteous visit to check how he was doing, which we did and then returned. Let me be clear: it has nothing to do with the year 2023. ”
Tinubu’ s health has recently become a topic of discussion. He also received an unexpected visit from President Muhammadu Buhari in London, where he was seen walking with a cane.
According to NEWS DIRECT, Tinubu had knee surgery at the John Hopkins University Hospital in Maryland. It was discovered that the APC leader left the United States on crutches for the United Kingdom a few days after the surgery.
Tinubu had planned to have the surgery in Paris, France, but changed his mind due to rumors of his death, according to those close to him.
” Tinubu had his second operation at John Hopkins University in Maryland lately. He was joined in Chicago by a well- known Nigerian doctor. According to one of the reports, he sought surgery in Paris, but as word of his death spread, he rushed to Nigeria and went to John Hopkins.
” He left the US on crutches for the UK, ” another source added. Tinubu, who has had many medical trips this year, had surgery about two weeks ago and could be billed for another.
The APC National Leader has been missing from official and party commitments in Nigeria for some time, prompting speculation that he is being groomed to take over Buhari’ s totalitarian rule in 2023.
His health is rapidly deteriorating. He was unable to attend the launch of his Arewa library or the recent Local Government Area elections. He was unable to attend today’ s APC meeting due to health difficulties.
According to a credible source, he had surgery last week. A few days after the report broke, photos of Tinubu hosting Sanwo- Olu in London surfaced, showing the two in the same room. The meeting was arranged, according to reports, to put an end to suspicions regarding the APC National Leader’ s health.
Tinubu was hospitalized in Paris, France, in January 2021 and had complained of exhaustion and gone out to rest before the news of his collapse went viral. He was brought to Paris for medical treatment in the first week of January. Tinubu is in Paris, France, for a medical checkup. His condition is deteriorating. He still wants to be President, despite his age and other factors. This might herald the beginning of a new wave of medical tourism.
