Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’ national leader and candidate for president, has left the country for France.
His media office said that the travel came after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday morning.
Tinubu will hold many significant meetings while in Paris, the French capital, according to a statement from his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman.
Funbasemedia was informed by a number of sources that the APC presidential candidate was traveling to Paris to take care of his medical requirements.
He is ill and requires medical attention, and the stress of the campaign and primary has affected him, a source close to the former Lagos governor told SaharaReporters. What meetings did he want to conduct in Paris that cannot be done in Lagos or Abuja?
Tinubu visited hospitals in France, the United States, and the United Kingdom for over 80 days in 2021 alone, all the while undergoing surgery at under-resourced hospitals run by the APC government in Nigeria.
A few days before Christmas in 2020, he was transported to Paris, France, by plane.
His media assistant later rejected any claims that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
On January 24, 2021, the APC leader returned to Nigeria after a month away.
On Thursday, June 10, 2021, he traveled to France for a medical examination and was noticeably absent from President Muhammadu Buhari’s one-day business visit to Lagos State.
