Sanwo-Olu visits Tinubu in London, declares APC leader hale, hearty

 

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Wednesday, declared the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, hale and hearty.

Speaking to journalists at the Lagos House, Ikeja, on his visit to Tinubu in London, on Tuesday, Governor Sanwo-Olu disclosed that his meeting and the picture he took with the former governor of Lagos State should dispel the rumours that the APC leader was sick and hospitalised.

It would be recalled that social media was awash few days ago that Asiwaju Tinubu was hospitalised and undergoing a major surgery in Maryland, the United States, over an undisclosed illness.

However, Sanwo-Olu, speaking with the media few hours after his return from London, said Tinubu was hale and hearty, adding that they both discussed on happenings in APC, national issues and other matters during his visit.

“Yes, indeed, I am the one you saw in the picture that I took when I visited our leader in London just to dispel all of the rumours that were flying around that he was sick and hospitalised.

“You saw him (Tinubu). He is well, he is healthy and we conversed. We talked about what is happening in our party, what is happening in the nation and just to say to him that all is well.

“I went to see things for myself. It is just to put the mind and heart of people to rest that there is nothing for us to worry about,” the governor disclosed.

When asked when Asiwaju Tinubu would likely return to Nigeria, Governor Sanwo-Olu said only the APC leader will decide when he will return from his foreign trip.

“A man has discretion as to decide when to go out of the country and when to return. It is his call. Is he coming here to do Governor’s work? Can’t you see the picture we took together? Picture doesn’t lie,” he blurted.
