Tunde Rahman, Media Adviser to a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has debunked reports that his principal has been hospitalized abroad.
The media adviser's statement on Saturday is in response to reports spreading online (not WuzupNigeria) claiming that the former governor of Lagos State is out on a medical emergency.
Rahman said that although Tinubu is out of the country, he has no medical problem that would require hospitalisation, adding that he would be back in Nigeria soon.
"His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is fine. He is hale and hearty. He is not in any hospital. He has no medical problem that would require hospitalisation.
"Yes, he is out of the country at the moment. He will be back shortly.
"Anytime he travels out of the country, the next thing some mischievous people would say is he is sick, hospitalised or has died. It is shameful that perpetrators of this evil are not deterred by the fact that each time this fake news has been propagated, they have been proven wrong.
"Who really is afraid of Asiwaju Tinubu? Those wishing Asiwaju Tinubu evil or dead should be careful. They should know the matter of life and death is in the hand of only God Almighty," the statement read.
