Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has returned to Nigeria after spending over three months in London, the British capital, where he was recuperating.
Tinubu, a former two-term governor of Lagos State, returned to the country on Friday evening.
In a statement issued by his media office on Friday, Tinubu had surgery on his right knee and also underwent physiotherapy following the operation.
The statement read: “His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, returned to the country, landing in Lagos Friday evening, October 8. He arrived from London, United Kingdom.
“During his trip abroad, he underwent surgery on his right knee as well as rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy on the said knee.
“Contrary to unfounded rumour, he underwent no other surgical procedures and contemplates none in the future.
“His recuperation has been without complication and ahead of the schedule by the attending surgeon.
“He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation.”
The APC chieftain thanked President Muhammadu Buhari and other political leaders, who visited him while he was in London.
Although Tinubu has yet to declare his intention to contest any office in 2023, there have been reports and veiled indications that he might be interested in contesting the 2023 presidential election.
His return comes hours after the launch of South West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ‘23), a campaign group championing the candidacy of Tinubu for the 2023 presidency, by current Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
