The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has returned to Nigeria from a medical trip to London.
Following his knee surgery in the United Kingdom, the former Lagos state governor returned to Nigeria on Friday, October 8, 2021, after a three-month absence.
His media office said in a statement Tinubu had surgery on his right knee and also underwent physiotherapy afterwards.
The statement reads, “His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, returned to the country, landing in Lagos Friday evening, October 8. He arrived from London, United Kingdom.
“During his trip abroad, he underwent surgery on his right knee as well as rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy on the said knee.
“Contrary to unfounded rumour, he underwent no other surgical procedures and contemplates none in the future.
“His recuperation has been without complications and ahead of schedule by the attending surgeon.
“He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part in advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation.”
Tinubu also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari and other party chieftains and political leaders who visited him in London.
Tinubu arrived in Lagos barely 24 hours after the incumbent governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, launched the South-West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ’23), a campaign organization promoting Tinubu’s presidential bid in 2023.
While Tinubu hasn’t declared his intention to contest, there are claims that the politician is plotting a presidential bid for 2023.
