Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu has denied the reports especially the pictures being circulated by the APC media and the presidency claiming that he and Bisi Akande the chairman APC Board of Trustees paid a courtesy visit to the Nigerian ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari in London.
Alhaji Tinubu according to Hope For Nigeria was shocked by the visibly photoshopped pictures clarified at his Bourdillon residence in Ikoyi Lagos that he did not travel to the United Kingdom and there was no way he should have seen President Buhari.
The APC leader added that he was surprised and aghast to see his pictures alongside Bisis Akande and Buhari stating that he was at Ibadan on the said day to attend to some personal matters and came back to Lagos the following day only to be surprised with the news all over the media.
“I did not travel to London or anywhere outside the country” said Tinubu.
Tinubu continued by saying :
What surprised me most was the pictures published and spreading all over the social media showing myself and Akande with Buhari in London. I didn’t travel out of the country so the question is where did these pictures emanate from?
“The presidential aides are not living up to their expectations in handling information relating to the president’s health, Tinubu said. I see nothing wrong in someone falling sick after all we are all humans and not machines, even machines do breakdown”
The presidential aides have left room for rumours and grapevines to thrive regarding the president vacation with conflicting statements and pronouncements.
