The Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, has dismissed claims that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, is sick.
Kalu said at the celebration of Mass to mark his 63rd birthday in Abu,
“Our President-elect is not sick. It is not true that he’s sick. I don’t want to say much. He is in good health; he is himself.”
The senator also recalled a conversation he had with his colleague over Tinubu’s reported ill health.
“One of my colleagues said yesterday he heard that the President-elect, Tinubu, was in the hospital. I told him the incoming president was not in the hospital; it is not true that he is in the hospital. We argued. I told him the President-elect was okay.”
Nigerians have been questioning Tinubu’s health status and whereabouts lately.
Recall that on 22 of March, reports had it that Tinubu was secretly flown out of Nigeria for medical treatment.
It was alleged that Tinubu took ill after months of uninterrupted political campaigns, but his media team said the President-elect travelled to Paris and London to rest.
