Presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday, shared active images of his political engagements in London, including meetings with key political figures and members of the Nigerian diaspora, thus debunking unfounded rumors of his purported hospitalization over failing health.
The former Lagos Governor was seen in one of the images with longtime ally and former Osun State Governor, Chief Bisi Akande, alongside Hajia Naja’atu Muhammad. All three displayed excitement after what sources confirmed to be a fruitful political deliberation centered upon the APC’s victory at the polls in 2023.
Tinubu’s trip to London had been seized upon by his detractors to spread rumors of a health emergency, similar to the disinformation attempt months back when a photo of an unusually dressed Nigerian musical artiste on a foreign flight was passed off as Tinubu purportedly being ‘disguised out of the country’.
Contrary to the rumors, PODIUM REPORTERS can confirm that his latest trip was to hold various strategic meetings with different political groups and interests, including the rebel alliance led by Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike who remains at the heart of an internal conflict threatening to sink the ambition of Atiku Abubakar, the main opponent.
