The All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed that the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, is in good health and will soon return to Nigeria.
In a statement made by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, he disclosed that Tinubu is taking a work rest in Europe, which he says was not possible in Nigeria.
Morka further stated that necessary people are allowed to have access to the President-Elect digitally and physically, and he is working towards the job ahead.
Tinubu would not have been able to take the deserved rest if he stayed in Nigeria after the polls, adding that he would be flanked by many lobbyists who wanted one thing or the other.
According to Morka, “He (Tinubu) is fine. After the elections and all of the energy expended, he just decided to take a moment of rest. Once he returns and he is inaugurated on May 29, there will be no dulling, he will be saddled with the responsibility of running a country as massive and complex as Nigeria.”
The APC spokesman also revealed that Tinubu is taking the time to reach out to heads of government and other levels of leadership of other countries that are vital to the agenda that he is bringing in his new government.
“So, he is not sleeping in his bed; he is also in meetings regularly with all kinds of people who are travelling from other countries to see him preparatory to his inauguration. So, it is a working visit.”
It would be recalled that in March, Tinubu’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman revealed that his principal travelled to Paris in France to rest and observe the lesser hajj.
The news of Tinubu’s absence from Nigeria had raised concerns about his state of health, with many Nigerians speculating that he was gravely ill.
This statement from the APC will come as a relief to his supporters who have been worried about his health and ability to lead the country.
