Tinubu returns from UK

THE presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has returned to the country after weeks in the United Kingdom.

Tinubu’s plane arrived at the Abuja international airport at about 6:00 p.m.

In a tweet on Thursday, presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, said Tinubu had returned to Abuja.

He said, “Our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has returned to Abuja from London.”

The flagbearer of the ruling party has been away from the country for the last few days.

The sudden trip has since generated speculations on whether Tinubu is medically fit for the presidential race.
