Viral pictures of Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s visit to the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Bola Tinubu in London confirming claims that Tinubu was hale and hearty have sparked reactions on social media.
Reacting to rumours his principal was hospitalised on Wednesday at the State House with correspondents in Alausa, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu said Tinubu who is currently out of the country is alive and without any medical issue.
According to the governor, the purpose of the visit was to dispel obnoxious rumours and ease the minds of those worried about the state-of-health of the APC helmsman.
The Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, also quoted Sanwo-Olu as saying that two men discussed “happenings in the APC, national issues and other matters” when they met in London.
In the pictures where one of them is time stamped “03 August/5:35pm”, the governor could be seen engaging the APC leader in a conversation.
Speculations of Tinubu’s demise heightened across social media after he was conspicuously absent from the Lagos Local Council election which held two weeks ago.
He was also not available for the Congresses of the APC which held during the weekend.
There are still speculations the pictures supposedly taken yesterday are old, as many demanded that the APC leader speak for himself.
