Tinubu Travels To France For Vacation, To Observe Lesser Hajj In Saudi Arabia

The President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has traveled out of the country to Paris, France, to take a rest, while planning for his May 29 inauguration.

A statement from his office, signed by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, on Wednesday, said Tinubu left the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, for Europe, Tuesday night.

Tinubu will proceed from Paris to Saudi Arabia, to participate in this year’s Lesser Hajj, Rahman added.

Explaining the reason for the trip, Rahman said, “The president-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting that begins Thursday.

“While away, the President-elect will also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme. He has directed all the senior aides and campaign staff to also go and observe a short rest. He is expected back in the country soon.

“We enjoin the media to stop publishing rumours and unsubstantiated claims and to always seek clarifications from our office.”
