Photos of the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, spending time with his grandchildren in London have endeared him further to Nigerians and triggered a wave of affectionate comments across the media, many of which commended his fatherly love and bond with the little kids.
The photos, shared by his son Mr. Seyi Tinubu on his personal Instagram page, were released Thursday. In addition to providing an insight into the candidate’s familial bond with his scions, they also reinforced his health fitness and mental alertness, contrary to fake reports previously making the rounds that he was confined to a hospital in London.
“It’s nice and heartwarming to see our incoming president share moments with his grandkids. I must also say that he looks sharp and very much alive for someone some people said was confined to a hospital bed,” one commenter on social media said.
“Seyi’s kids are so cute. And they obviously enjoy moments like this with their grandfather. I think it speaks of Tinubu’s fatherly care and tenderness. The emotional connect is glaring,” another said.
Since his emergence as the candidate of the ruling APC, Bola Tinubu has soared into an early lead, with many analysts predicting a landslide victory for him at the polls next year.
His major opponent, Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, has been unable to unite his party after fallouts from its contentious primary, in which the influential Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike came second, has given rise to calls for a leadership reshuffle and caused many governors to announce their abandonment of the party’s challenge for the presidency.
