Contrary to the rumour and online postings making the rounds since december 2011 Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is in perfect health Citizen Confidential (CC) investigation can confirm authoritatively. Asiwaju Tinubu who breezed back into the country over two weeks ago held political consultations with associates, different levels of party membership, South-West leaders and leaders from the civil society. Between last Monday and Tuesday Tinubu was in Abuja for further consultations with party leaders and political and opinion leaders from other parts of the country.
An associate of Tinubu told CC “I can confirm that the Blackberry messages and online postings alleging that he is paralyzed and was flown out of the country some days ago are false and sponsored by detractors who wants him out of circulation.” Checks by CC at the VIP wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport with senior airport officials confirmed that Tinubu was hale and hearty when he walked into the aircraft in company of Osun state governor, Rauf Aregbesola and his aides.
A senior airport officer said “Where do people get all this unfounded rumour. Tinubu is in great health. We see him pass through here all the time. Nothing is wrong with the man jare. Na lie ”CC’s attempt to reach the Tinubu camp to officiallyreact to the story was with little success. Close political associates contacted just laughed at the story and advised those spreading the rumour to find something better to do.
