Bayo Onanuga: APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu Not Sick, Still Working In London
Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Publicity for the All Progressives Congress Presidential (APC) Campaign Council, revealed on Friday that the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is as healthy and hardworking in London, United Kingdom, as he is in Nigeria.
Onanuga made the remarks in response to criticism surrounding the whereabouts of the APC flagbearer, who was absent from the official start of the presidential election campaigns in 2023.
He particularly made a clarification on his official Facebook page about a viral photo that suggested that Tinubu was sick.
The post read, “Here is a fake photo of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu forwarded to me just now, another handiwork of purveyors of deep fake. Whoever is behind this malicious falsehood will face the judgment of God at the right time. The man in the photo does not look like Asiwaju, except for his baldness. The man is fatter. Tinubu is slimmer.
“Look at the frame of his glasses. it is undoubtedly not Tinubu’s trademark frame. Let me assure Nigerians who genuinely want to know Tinubu’s whereabouts. He is in London, in his house.
“Tinubu left Nigeria on Saturday night for a short break and in readiness for what will certainly be a grueling campaign.” I saw him and spoke with him two hours before he left. He was hale and hearty. He was not ill. He didn’t go to treat any ailment.
“We spoke today at about 2 pm. And he told me how his one-week retreat had not made any difference. He was still working like in Nigeria. Today, he still burnt his candle till 4.30 a.m..
“Nigerians should stop spreading rumors about Tinubu, who, by the grace of God and fellow Nigerians, will be elected our leader next February.” “We should learn from the divine fate of the man who wished Tinubu dead,” he said.
