The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has finally returned to the country after a prolonged medical vacation in London, the United Kingdom.
Tinubu arrived through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Friday night and was received by the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The APC leader was said to have undergone a knee surgery during his nearly three-month medical vacation.
A statement issued by his media office said “Contrary to unfounded rumour, he underwent no other surgical procedures” apart from the knee surgery, noting that the ex-Lagos governor “contemplates none in the future.”
The statement said Tinubu’s, “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.
“Asiwaju, first and foremost, would like to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for taking the time to visit him in London to express his wishes for a speedy recovery from the knee operation.
“He is also not forgetting others who would have loved to visit him but couldn’t make it and his numerous friends, associates, supporters and well-wishers who have been with him in prayers and supplications to Allah.”
During his stay in London, Tinubu received numerous guests including President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Sanwo-Olu and the northern caucus of the House of Representatives, amongst others.
