National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has returned to Nigeria after one month absence.
Tinubu returned to the country on Sunday, about a month after he left.
The former Lagos State governor was sighted at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, in company with some of his aides.
Tinubu was on January 3 rushed to a hospital in Paris, France, after he suddenly fell ill.
Speculations had been rife that he tested positive for COVID-19, but his media team later denied such reports.
His spokesman, Tunde Rahman, had said, “Asiwaju is healthy and does not have COVID-19.
“He took his annual trip and as part of the preparation for the trip he took a COVID-19 test which was negative. Since the advent of the pandemic Asiwaju has always done his level best to observe, as strictly as humanly possible, all government advice and safety protocols to prevent the spread of the virus and to keep himself and those around him safe from harm.”
Speculations are also rife that the APC national leader is warming up to contest the 2023 presidential election.
Although he has yet to publicly declare his interest in the number one political office, his allies and associates have started campaigning.
