Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has debunked reports that he slumped and was rushed to the hospital.
Tinubu, who received representatives of traditional rulers from the south-west led by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, in Abuja on Friday, January 11, dismissed the reports as "fake news," Daily Trust reports.
Legit.ng gathers that he stated further: “Whoever is manufacturing it, you better not believe them.”
Tinubu also reacted to reports on the absence of APC governors at the inaugural meeting of the presidential campaign council, also dismissing it as fake news.
He said: “The point is, the governors had to stay back because we all don’t have to converge in one place to decide certain modalities when we can easily go back to them on what was discussed and what we expect from your state. That is what we call structuring in an election."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the co-chair of the APC presidential campaign council, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, assured Muhammadu Buhari that the body had accepted the assignment given it by the president and will work for the country.
Tinubu, in a personally signed statement, said the council would not let President Buhari down because doing so would also let down the nation.
The chieftain of the APC, therefore, rallied members of the campaign council with minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, as director-general, for the task ahead.
