Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is not in hospital and would soon return to the country, his spokesperson has said.
Tunde Rahman, the media adviser to Tinubu, made the rebuttal in a statement issued on Saturday following rumours about his principal’s state of health.
According to the spokesperson, the former Lagos State governor is hale and hearty outside the country and would soon return.
Rahman, however, did not disclose which country his principal is currently in.
The statement partly read: ”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.”
