The National Leader of Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not dead as being reported in some quarters early on Saturday.
The Media Adviser to Tinubu, Mr Tunde Rahman, debunked the death rumours to clarify that the former Governor of Lagos State is hale and hearty.
In a statement on Saturday, Rahman said: “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.”
