Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress’s (APC) presidential candidate, has life, according to Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, and is not required to provide any evidence of this to anyone.
While answering questions on the Channels TV Morning Rise Program this morning, he made this early morning disclosure.
Remember that the APC candidate’s absence from the recent signing of a peace accord pact by presidential candidates of political parties has sparked rumors that he may be dealing with a health crisis.
Later on Thursday, it was reported that he was in London, United Kingdom.
To demonstrate his strength and fitness, Tinubu has also uploaded a video of himself using an exercise bike.
He did not, however, explain his absence.
In response to the rumors, Governor Umahi said that those who inquire about the wellbeing of the nation’s leaders, including the candidate of his party, are being petty.
“This is one thing: nobody is completely healthy and nobody is completely ill. Another point is that some of us Nigerians are petty.
“A man working out is being recorded and shared without his knowledge on social media, you know.
“Accordingly, an individual who is alive does not need to provide any evidence of his life. You can see that Asiwaju is alive and does not need to provide any evidence of his existence.
“I believe that since life is like riding a bus and without knowing where the next bus stop is, we should focus on the tangibles.
Some of the people discussing the health of the nation’s leaders don’t even know when their bus stop is going to arrive. So we ought to rely on material things. That’s how I see it; every life and health is in God’s hands,” he remarked.
