Festus Keyamo, a spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, stated that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the party’s flag bearer, is currently abroad but is in good health.
This was stated by Keyamo, who also serves as the state’s minister of labor and productivity, during a Thursday morning interview on Arise TV.
Before attending the live broadcast on Thursday, the minister claimed to have spoken with Seyi Tinubu, the son of APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu, who gave him the assurance that Tinubu was well.
He added that because Tinubu is not yet Nigeria’s President, he is not required to make public pronouncements regarding his health and location.
Keyamo said, “He’s hale, hearty and healthy. He’s out of the country for a number of days. No controversy, about his whereabouts. And he’s not a president to issue statements as to his whereabouts.
“And I spoke with his son this morning. I spoke with Seyi and he said Asiwaju is fine. He was sleeping.”
According to Keyamo, Tinubu would run his campaign based on the APC’s track record, his own leadership as a former governor of Lagos, and the manifestos.
