Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu returned to the country Thursday from the United Kingdom.
“After days of intensive political consultations and meetings in London, our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is expected back in Abuja, later today,” presidential spokesperson, Bashir Ahmad, had earlier said in a tweet, forecasting his return.
The spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Festus Keyamo, had on Wednesday also said Tinubu will soon be back in the country.
“I know he would be back in a couple of days. I have that information. I don’t know the particular day,” Keyamo said on Channels Television’s Politics Today. “I can’t say Friday or Saturday but I know he would be back in a couple of days.”
Tinubu’s visit to the United Kingdom has made headlines in recent times.
Critics claim his absence when political campaigns have kickstarted suggests there might be issues. Others claim the former Lagos State governor is on a medical visit to the UK.
