Tinubu not down with stroke in American hospital …on vacation, says aide
Speculations that Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is down with stroke in an American Hospital, has been described as a wicked rumor.
Some online blogs had published reports suggesting that the health of Tinubu, who left Nigeria few weeks ago was gone from bad to worse.
According to the reports, which quoted a source close to the Tinubu family, the health of the APC leader may have worsened due to recent discovery of cancer
The cancer, the source claims, had reached advanced stage before it was diagnosed by the medical team, adding that the recent stroke only added to the seriousness of the situation.
It was alleged that Tinubu in his current state has not been able to recognize close family relatives who had come to pay him a visit, heightening fears that the self-styled godfather of southwest politics was exhibiting symptoms of dementia.
But an aide of the former Lagos State Governor, Sunday Dare, in an electronic message to Pointblanknews.com said the speculations are unfounded and fallacious.
He said Tinubu was away on vacation and would be back to shame his detractors.
According to Dare the rumor deserved no attention because it was concocted by agents of darkness and idle minds.
Dare said “ If you believe this then you will fall for anything. This is a lie from the pit of hell. An unfounded and fallacious rumor concocted by agents of darkness and idle minds.”
“Ask if they have proof. The day he returns I will invite you to welcome him. It is quiet amusing that such a wicked rumour that deserves no attention but to be trashed is even being pursued. It is those that think he has a stroke that suffer from a stroke of the mind” he said
Another source said “Yes, it is true Asiwaju is out of the country. But he is on vacation. He was in the United States for some days, Los Angeles I guess. He then proceeded to London.It is normal for him at this time to observe his summer break.”
Efforts by pointblanknews.com correspondent in the United States to locate the residence of Tinubu proved abortive, as Dare did not disclose.
