“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is in London. He cannot rest in Lagos, they will not let him rest. He came to Abuja most of the time, and they will still not let him rest.
"This man has been working for an average of 20 hours in 24 hours in each day. So reasonable people thought he should leave the country because people will not let him rest since the campaign is coming soon.
“The invitation for the peace accord came after Tinubu left the country. Even his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, was not in town, he had to leave what he was doing in Maiduguri.”
