“Bola Tinubu has no medical problem that would require hospitalization.”
These were the words of Tunde Rahman, Media Adviser to Asiwaju Tinubu while speaking with PM News on Saturday afternoon.
Rahman stated this while reacting to a report by Sahara Reporters that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress is currently hospitalized in the United States.
Sahara Reporters said Tinubu is presently hospitalised in Maryland, the United States.
The online newspaper added that the former Governor of Lagos state had surgery last week and could be billed for another one over a yet-to-be-disclosed illness.
“Tinubu is hospitalized in Maryland, US. His health is failing. He couldn’t participate in launching his Arewa library, and he couldn’t participate in the Local Government Area elections last week. He could not attend today’s APC congress due to health reasons.
“He had surgery last week,” Sahara Reporters reported.
However, Rahman rubbished the report but confirmed that Tinubu is currently out of the country.
“His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is fine. He is hale and hearty. He is not in any hospital. He has no medical problem that would require hospitalization.
“Yes, he is out of the country at the moment. He will be back shortly. Anytime he travels out of the country, the next thing some mischievous people would say is he is sick, hospitalized or has died. It is shameful that perpetrators of this evil are not deterred by the fact that each time this fake news has been propagated, they have been proven wrong.
“Who really is afraid of Asiwaju Tinubu? Those wishing Asiwaju Tinubu evil or dead should be careful. They should know the matter of life and death is in the hand of only God Almighty.”
