A media aide to the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Tunde Rahman has debunked story making the rounds that his principal has been hospitalised in Maryland, United States of America, where he was reported to have undergone a surgery.
Rahman had issued a statement refuting the story. He admitted Tinubu was out of town, but explained that ‘Asiwaju is hale and hearty.’
Below is the statement:
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.
