All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, has travelled out of Nigeria weeks after declaring his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election, Oyogist.com reports.
According to reports by Punch, A member of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Movement’s Working Committees told their correspondent on Friday that the former Lagos State governor travelled overseas to rest and strategise.
The source, who craved anonymity, said, “He (Tinubu) travelled abroad to rest after going around the country for consultations.”
Efforts to get the comments of the Director-General of the Tinubu Support Group, Abdulmumin Jibrin, proved abortive as of press time.
However, Tinubu’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman, in a text response to an inquiry by The PUNCH on Friday, said the APC stalwart would return to Nigeria next week.
He said, “Asiwaju’s trip to the UK (United Kingdom) is not to rest or because of any illness.
“While abroad, Asiwaju is maintaining a vigorous schedule of meetings and consultations on a range of important matters.
“Whether at home or abroad, the daily schedule of Asiwaju is vibrant and full. Most people couldn’t sustain his high level of activity. This speaks to his exceptional intellectual energy and his commitment to achievement.”
“Asiwaju will return to Nigeria next week once this set of meetings and talks abroad is completed,” he added.
