I Have Not Withdrawn from Presidential Race – Tinubu

By: Agosu Tayo

Amid speculations as regards his health status, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, says he considers himself fit to run for the office. 

The ex-Lagos governor who shared a workout video on his Twitter handle Sunday refuted claims that he has withdrawn from the race.

“Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign,” the APC candidate tweeted on his verified handle.

“Well… Nope. This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy and I am READY to serve Nigerians from Day One,” he said.

There have been concerns about the health status of Tinubu, which is why many Nigerians are questioning his capacity for the nation’s top job.

Recently, discussions have taken over the social space on the reason why Tinubu has not been seen in political gatherings, especially at the signing of a peace accord by presidential candidates ahead of the coming polls.

While other candidates gathered at the International Conference Centre in Abuja, he sent his running mate, Kashim Shettima, to represent him. The development triggered reactions and pushed #WhereIsTinubu to the top trends on social media last Wednesday.

In August, the former Borno State governor also represented him at the NBA conference. While reacting to comments about Tinubu’s whereabouts, a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Ayo Oyalowo, made it known that the party’s flagbearer is currently resting in the United Kingdom.
