Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s nominee for president, has denied reports that he is deceased and said he is strong and healthy.
In a tweet on Sunday, the former governor of Lagos State denied rumors that he had dropped out of the 2023 presidential race.
A video that accompanied the tweet showed him exercising on a fitness bike.
Many have claimed that I have passed away, while others assert that I have ended my presidential campaign. Actually, no.
“This is the truth: I am healthy, strong, and READY to serve Nigerians from Day One,” he said.
After Tinubu did not show up for the signing of the peace agreement by the 2023 presidential candidates, questions were raised about his whereabouts.
However, he was represented at the event by Kashim Shettima, his running mate and the former governor of Borno State.
Ayo Oyalowo, a member of the APC’s presidential campaign council, explained the flagbearer’s absence by saying Tinubu had traveled to London to take a break.
However, it is unclear if the video the presidential candidate tweeted was shot in London.
