Speaking with Legit.ng, Deaconess Docas Oyewale said people going about with reports about Tinubu's health should have their head examined.
"People shouting about Tinubu's heath are people who should be ashamed of themselves. The Tinubu that came to campaign for the party's governorship choice in Ekiti is a man that should not be called sick. For me and my household, our votes will go to him. All other candidates are just wasting their time."
Another speaker is Omini Adeyeye. According to him, it is only God that gives good health.
"People have been saying Tinubu is sick, he is incapable of doing any thing if elected. Who told them that. Are they God? To me, I am supporting the Jagaban. By God's grace he will become the president of Nigeria in 2023."
