- Tinubu returns to Nigeria after three months UK medical trip barely 24 hours after the inauguration of South-West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA).
Ekohotblog reports that the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Friday, returned to Nigeria after about a three-month medical trip to the United Kingdom, where he underwent knee surgery.
The former Lagos State governor arrived in Lagos barely 24 hours after the incumbent Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, inaugurated the South-West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ‘23), a group rooting for Tinubu as the APC presidential candidate in the 2023 election.
A statement from the Tinubu Media Office on Friday, titled, ‘Asiwaju is back’, said the ex-governor underwent surgery on his right knee as well as rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy, adding that he was now fully healed.
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 complication and ahead of the schedule by the attending surgeon.
“He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation.”
The APC chieftain expressed his appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari, as well as other political leaders, who visited him while he was in London.
The development comes hours after the launch of South West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ‘23), a campaign group championing the candidacy of Tinubu for the 2023 presidency.
The APC chieftain is, however, yet to officially declare his interest to run for the presidency.
