All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has returned to Nigeria after 12 days in the United Kingdom.
Tinubu’s plane touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja on Thursday evening.
The Director General of the APC campaign council, Simon Lalong and former National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, were some of the party faithful that received him at the airport.
There have been rumours that the candidate was holed up sick in London and would not return soon to commence campaigns for next year’s election. His campaign team has, however, denied the reports.
His team claimed that he travelled to the UK to catch some rest before the full commencement of campaign activities.
The APC has had to postpone the flag-off of its campaign due to Tinubu’s absence.
In the last few days, his handlers released several images and ‘workout video’, as opposition demand his whereabouts. The #WhereIsTinubu trended on Twitter for days.
Tinubu was also absent at the peace accord signing by the presidential candidates of all the political parties ahead of the 2023 general election. His running mate, Kashim Shettima represented him at the event, which held last week.Follow us on social media
