Tinubu hospitalized!

The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was earlier on Thursday (today) spotted with President Muhammadu Buhari during the inaugural meeting of the presidential campaign council of the party at the State House in Abuja.

Recall that the president had earlier in the week handed over the campaign structure to Asiwaju Tinubu citing prompt attention to governance issues. Prior to this, Buhari and Tinubu originally co-chaired the committee.

However, a former minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode, alleged that Tinubu, collapsed shortly after he was appointed Chairman of Buhari’s Campaign Council.

He said Tinubu always experiences terrible things each time he was given a major role in the APC government. Fani-Kayode who disclosed this in a couple of tweets on Thursday, said the former Lagos governor is currently in the hospital where he was rushed to after he allegedly collapsed during his appointment as Chairman of Buhari’s Campaign Council.

The former minister who urged Nigerians, especially the Yorubas, to pray for Tinubu also said that he loves the APC leader and has no personal grudge with him.

According to him, “Last year on the day that Bola Tinubu was appointed Chairman of the APC Reconciliation Commitee,he lost his son.

Three days ago, on the day that he was appointed Chairman of Buhari’s Campaign Council, he slumped, collapsed and was rushed to the hospital where he remains till today.”

“Despite our political differences I love Bola Tinubu and I urge every Nigerian and particularly the Yoruba to pray for him. That God should preserve and protect him and make him understand His ways.”
