Kaduna Governor’s Assurance on President Tinubu’s Health
Senator Uba Sani, the Governor of Kaduna State, has provided reassurance regarding the health and activities of President Bola Tinubu.
He conveyed this during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today program.
President Tinubu’s Well-Being and Overseas Engagements
Governor Sani confirmed that President Tinubu is currently in Europe, where he is engaged in meetings with investors and participating in bilateral discussions.
This statement dispels any concerns about the president’s health and whereabouts.
Commendation for President Tinubu’s UN Speech
Additionally, Senator Sani commended President Tinubu for his inaugural speech at the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, USA.
He highlighted that the speech portrayed Nigeria and Africa positively, indicating that Western nations now view the continent as having a respected leader.
A Call for Calm and an End to Propaganda
Despite confirming President Tinubu’s well-being and ongoing engagements, Senator Sani emphasized that there is no need for Nigerians to worry about the president’s location.
He also called on the opposition to cease propagating misleading information about Tinubu.
Background on Recent Speculations
The reassurance from Governor Sani comes in response to speculations and claims by Phrank Shaibu, an aide to the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
Shaibu alleged that President Tinubu made an unannounced stopover in Paris, France, during his recent trip without informing Nigerians.
President Tinubu’s Recent Itinerary
President Tinubu’s recent itinerary indicated his last scheduled activity on September 21, 2023, which involved a meeting with Nigerians residing in the United States.
He had arrived in New York on September 18 to attend the High-Level meetings of the 78th session of UNGA, which commenced with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) summit.
Reports of Departure
Contrary to earlier reports suggesting President Tinubu’s departure from New York on September 21, it is evident that Governor Sani’s statements aim to provide clarity on the president’s activities and well-being, dispelling any lingering doubts or uncertainties.
