The national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu returned to the country on Friday evening, October 8th after about 74 days patronising hospitals in France, United States and the United Kingdom where he underwent several surgeries.
His return, some political observers said may cause some stirs in the political firmament of Nigeria as a result of his much publicized interest to run for presidency in 2023.
A statement by his media office indicated that 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.
“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.
The statement quoted him to have
thanked House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, Governors, party leaders, members of Northern Caucus of the House of Representatives, members of the Lagos State House of Assembly and indeed many others who called on him in London to wish him well.
