Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has finally put paid to rumours swirling around social media.
The internet and public discourse has been rife with rumours that the APC chieftain was flown abroad on account of ill health. Last Sunday at an event in Ikorodu, discussions regarding Tinubu’s ill heath dominated the discourse.
Well, the strong man of Bourdillon has spoken via twitter and it is affirmative: ‘”The story about my health is the mother of all lies. Do not believe it. I was on my usual holidays. I thank all well wishers. I return soon.”
And for naysayers who would scoff that the tweet was sent by an aide, Bola Ahmed Tinubu was seen last weekend at the Victoria and Albert Musuem in London. He was a guest at the London leg of Toyin Saraki’s 5oth birthday shindig.
Tinubu arrived the hall dressed in a black suit with bow tie. He spent about an hour which he spent exchanging pleasantries and dancing.
Other guests at the event included Chief Olagunsoye Oyinola, Comrade Adams Oshiomole, Rotimi Amaechi and wife, Aig Imoukhuede, Segun Agbaje of GTB and wife, Chief Emeka Anyaoku and wife, Governor Amosun and wife, Wale Tinubu and wife as well as Aliko Dangote.
Wizkid performed at the event alongside NeYo while DJ Cuppy handled proceedings on the wheels of steel.
Bola Ahmed Tinubu left the party just before 2am.
