Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, acclaimed national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, returned to Nigeria last night after about three-month medical trip to the United Kingdom where he had a knee surgery.
The former Lagos State governor arrived barely 24 hours after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu inaugurated the South-West Agenda 2023, SWAGA ‘23, a group rooting for Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the ruling party 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 read: “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.
“Asiwaju, first and foremost, would like to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for taking the time to visit him in London to express his wishes for a speedy recovery from the knee operation.
“He is also not forgetting others who would have loved to visit him but couldn’t make it and his numerous friends, associates, supporters and well-wishers who have been with him in prayers and supplications to Allah.”
