After undergoing knee surgery in London, Tinubu returns to Nigeria

By Our Correspondent



Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has returned to Nigeria after undergoing knee surgery in London, United Kingdom.


Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos, returned to the country on Friday evening.


According to a statement by his media office, the former governor had surgery on his right knee, and also underwent physiotherapy following the operation.


“His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, returned to the country, landing in Lagos Friday evening, October 8. He arrived from London, United Kingdom,” the statement reads.


“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 presidency.
