Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former governor of Lagos and national leader of the All Progressives Congress has tweeted a reaction to several rumours about his health, describing them as fake.
“The story about my health is the mother of all lies.Do not believe it. I was on my usual holidays. I thank all well wishers.I return soon”. he said on his Twitter handle, @asiwajutinubu.
Since Tinubu left the country after the Osun election late August, the internet has been flooded with all manners of stories about his health, with one story even saying affirmatively that he had lost all sense of cognition, and could no longer recognise friends and relations.
Some other stories said that Tinubu had suffered a serious stroke and has been hospitalised.
Several efforts by his aides and friends to stem the torrents of speculations have failed, with the stories re-emerging, with new lies and concoctions.
Sources close to the politician said today that Tinubu may return to the country any moment to Nigeria to douse all the speculations.
In a later tweet, Tinubu sought divine forgiveness to the rumour mongers. “May God forgive the rumour mongers b/c they do not know what they are doing. Those with evil thoughts towards me, God will guide them right,” he tweeted.
