The development was coming days after Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, paid a visit to Tinubu in London.
Unconfirmed reports had alleged that Tinubu was sick and receiving medical treatment in the United Kingdom.
Governor Sanwo-Olu had, however, dismissed the reports after the visit, insisting that the APC chieftain is “hale and hearty”.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that photos of Governor Sanwo-Olu visiting his political mentor and former governor of the state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu emerged.
It was reported that the photos were shared by the United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on its official page.
Sanwo-Olu who adorned a jacket, chinos, and sports footwear was seen conversing with Tinubu, who looked relaxed in a simple shirt and trousers.
In a related report, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday, August 3, said the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Tinubu, is healthy and strong.
Governor Sanwo-Olu gave this report after his trip to the United Kingdom (UK) to visit Tinubu.
Sanwo-Olu had said:
“My going to see our leader was really around the rumours flying around about him. “He is well and healthy. We discussed happening in our party and country at large. All is well with him as I saw myself and there is nothing to worry about.”
Also, Chief Olabode George, a former deputy national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he would renounce his Nigerian citizenship if Asiwaju Tinubu becomes president in 2023.
George who was a guest at Arise TV’s The Morning Show on Wednesday, August 11, said the national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) is not qualified to be president of Nigeria.
