National leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been hospitalized in France, TheCable is reporting.
Rumours are rife that the Lagos strongman is down with COVID-19 but his spokesperson, Tunde Rahman, denied it.
“This story is inaccurate. Asiwaju is healthy and does not have COVID-19,” he said.
“He took his annual trip and as part of the preparation for the trip he took a COVID-19 test which was negative. Since the advent of the pandemic Asiwaju has always done his level best to observe, as strictly as humanly possible, all government advice and safety protocols to prevent the spread of the virus and to keep himself and those around him safe from harm.
“This has not changed. Shortly before Christmas, he indeed travelled out of Nigeria for his annual holiday. This is something he does each year to give himself a chance to rest and reflect on the year just passed while also preparing for the challenges and opportunities of the one to come.
“There will be no further comment on this story from our office.”
