The photos were shared following the rumours by some social media handles that Tinubu was currently receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment in London.
The photos sparked reactions from Nigerians on social media.
Samuel Paul wrote on Facebook:
“The kind of leaders we have in Nigeria. They can not upgrade the hospitals in the country, instead they go abroad for medical treatment with the taxpayers' money and allow Nigerians to die for lack of good medical treatment. It shows how much they love their country and the citizens.”
Callistus Cally Bunke Nwabuikwu wrote:
“London is where they go for medical attention even if they have headaches. Remember the president is equally there.
“All their children are there either for education or for medical reasons. Yet you and I are here shouting their praises, fighting each other on social media over their suitability to rule this country.”

Tinubu as a grandfather
In another post, the APC UK shared photos of Tinubu enjoying some time with his grandchildren.
It is not clear where the photo was taken as the post was silent on more details of the shared picture.
Recall that Tunde Rahman, the media aide to Tinubu recently debunked the sick/death rumours being peddled about his principal.
Tinubu is not dead nor hospitalised but he is currently out of Nigeria, Rahman said in a statement released on Saturday, July 31.
The media aide added that his principal is hale and hearty and will shortly return to the country.

Igbokwe, a chieftain of the ruling APC, said this while fielding questions in an interview with BBC Pidgin.
Asked if he sees Tinubu, an APC national leader, as a potential president, Igbokwe answered in the affirmative, adding that the former Lagos governor is a builder who can unite the country.
