When Tinubu's absence was noticed

Tinubu has been away in London for the past two months. His absence from Nigeria was first prominently noticed during the local government elections in Lagos which was held on Saturday, July 24.

The former Lagos governor did not vote during the election and his absence fueled speculations as some claimed he was sick.

However, his media aide, Tunde Rahman, debunked the sick/death rumours being peddled about his principal.

Politicians visit Tinubu in London

Since his stay in the UK, the APC chieftain's London residence has turned to some sort of "Mekkah" where Nigerian political stakeholders take turns to visit. No fewer than 30 politicians including President Muhammadu Buhari have visited him since he left the shores of Nigeria.
