The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, returned to the country on Friday after embarking on three-month medical trip abroad.
WuzupNigeria had reported that the former Lagos State governor reportedly travelled to the United Kingdom for a knee surgery.
A statement released by his media team confirmed that the APC national leader also underwent a rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy on the said knee.
"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," the statement partly read.
Tinubu's arrival coincided with the inauguration of the South-West Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ‘23), a group rooting for Tinubu as the APC presidential candidate in the 2023 election by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Although the Jagaban as he is popularly called had yet to declare his intention to contest any office in 2023, his body language indicates that he might be interested in the exalted seat.
While in London, he was visited by a number of politicians, including the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.); Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Governors Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), and Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti).
Other politicians who visited him included a former governor of Ogun State and incumbent Senator representing Ogun Central, Ibikunle Amosun; former governor of Borno State and Senator representing Borno Central, Kashim Shettima; and member representing Gubio, Kaga and Magumeri Federal Constituency of Borno State, Usman Zanna.
There were similar delegations to the UK led by Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat; Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa; Chief of Staff to Lagos State Governor, Tayo Ayinde; Deputy Chief of Staff to Lagos State Governor, Gboyega Soyannwo; Special Adviser to Lagos State Governor on Education, Tokunbo Wahab; and a former APC National Legal Adviser, Muiz Banire.
