TINUBU HALE AND HEARTY —AJOMALE
Contrary to speculations circulating on the social media that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is suffering from Parkinson’s disease, the party’s interim chairman in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, Chief Henry Oladele Ajomale, said Tinubu is hale and hearty.
Ajomale, debunked the allegation and described it as a figment of the imagination of the party leader’s detractors.
He confirmed that Tinubu had undergone a surgery for an accident he suffered on his knee cap, but stated that he is recuperating in London.
“I wonder where those who started the speculation got their information from. There is nothing further from the truth, because the Asiwaju I met and discussed with last week in London was as fit as fiddle.
“In fact, he was upbeat while our discussion on political happenings and the way forward in our country lasted. Besides, he has been in regular contact with his associates and followers back home and all other parts of the world,” Ajomale stated.
Ajomale added that it had become imperative to allay the fears of the members of public as well as their party following the unfounded rumour surrounding his health status..
An American-based online magazine, Paparazzi, recently on the social media alleged that Tinubu was down with the Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that is characterised my muscle tremor.
The news, which went viral, has been retailed on other social media platforms, like twitter and facebook, therefore eliciting panic among the teeming supporters of the former Lagos State governor and a man who has come to be known as the leading light of political opposition in Nigeria.
