Reports making the round in some media outlets that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu had died have been described as false and an attempt by some “mischievous people” to dent the image of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is gunning for the presidency in 2023.
A source had been quoted by a media outlet to have said:
Tinubu is hospitalised 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 a surgery last week.
But Tunde Rahman, media adviser to the former Lagos governor, said that his principal is not sick, hospitalised or dead as claimed by “some people.”
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.
Since announcing his decision to contest the 2023 presidential election, news have been flying around that Tinubu’s health is not in stable condition.
However, the rumours have been said to have been cooked up by people who do not mean well for the APC chieftain.
