Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

A close associate of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, has dispelled his rumoured grave ill-health and admission in a London hospital.

Addressing a press conference in Lagos, on Thursday, Cardinal James Omolaja Odunmbaku, deputy chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the party, said Senator Tinubu was hale and hearty when he met with him in London.

Odunmbaku, who was on medical vacation abroad, returned to the state on Wednesday. He disclosed that he spent the last two days with Tinubu in London, where “he’s doing well, hale and hearty.” He added that they extensively discussed the future of the party and expected electoral successes in 2015 elections.

“I would like you to know that I spent the last two days with our indefatigable and revered leader, Tinubu. He is hale, hearty and very fit. He will soon be with us. We discussed on how to fashion out some strategies about how our party can excel in the coming general election.”

Debunking the rumour that he had parted ways with Tinubu and the governor of Osun State, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, Odunmbaku said the rumour was figment of imagination of APC detractors.

He said the relationship between him and the duo remained solid.

According to him, “a couple of weeks ago, I was not in good state of health and had to take time off. I know there had been rumours doing the round. I wish to reiterate that today, I am a member of our great party and a member of the Governing Advisory Committee and still remains the deputy state chairman of APC Lagos.”

He disclosed that he led an army of prayer warriors to Ile-Ife, Osogbo and Ede in Osun State during the electoral campaigns of Aregbesola, despite his health condition then. Abeke Olabode
