Tinubu Had Surgery, I Visited Him In London To Show Support, Says Fayemi

The Ekiti State Governor and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has said that he visited the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in London recently to show support for the ailing politician.

Fayemi made this known on Sunday when he spoke on THISDAY Live, an interview programme on Arise TV monitored by The PUNCH.

According to the governor, Tinubu had surgery and he had visited the former Lagos State governor alongside his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu, to show solidarity.

Fayemi also said his visit to Tinubu was not connected to the 2023 general elections.

The governor said, “He (Akeredolu) and I were in London together to see our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but it had absolutely nothing to do with 2023 presidential plans whatsoever. That’s not the reason why we went there”.

“Asiwaju had surgery, it is simply proper etiquette or behaviour both in the part of the country where I come from but also generally that when a friend and elder is undergoing health challenges, it would be improper on your part not to show solidarity and support.

“That is simply what took us there; we wanted to associate ourselves with him at a time of need and as an elder, as a mentor and as a big figure in our political party, nothing wrong in paying him a courtesy visit to check on him to see how he was faring and we did that and we returned.

“It has nothing to do with 2023; let me make that absolutely clear.”
