Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, stated, “President Bola Tinubu departs Abuja for Paris, France, on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, for a private visit. He will return to the country in the first week of February 2024.” Unofficially, the trip is acknowledged as medical leave to consult with his doctors in France.
Several months ago, SaharaReporters disclosed Tinubu’s health challenges, citing fatigue after the May 29 inauguration, leading to a period of bed rest. Tinubu had previously sought medical attention in France, both before and after his inauguration.
Reports indicated that his recent visit to France aligns with his routine medical check-ups and preparation for the demanding inauguration period. The politician’s health situation was previously serious, requiring intubation and specialized care. Despite official denials, his ailment necessitated intensive medical intervention, including respiratory support.
Medical experts highlighted that Tinubu had a suspected peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC line), a medical device used for delivering treatments directly to large central veins near the heart. The procedure indicated the severity of his condition and the need for continuous monitoring and treatment.
