The Media Office of a former Governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has explained why he has been absent at most public functions of late.
According to his Media Strategist, Gbenga Olorunponmi, the APC leading founder is in the United States of America to keep an appointment for a knee surgery.
A three paragraph statement issued on Monday by Olorunponmi reads, “This brief statement explains the reason behind the absence of the former Governor of Lagos State and leading founder of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu from public engagements in the past few days.
“Based on a previous sports injury on one of his knees and recent further aggravation on the knee from rigorous political and family related activities, he has been advised by his doctors, despite his persistent reluctance, that orthopedic surgery is necessary at this time.
“The week of the 5th of August has been slated for the surgery. Governor Tinubu is expected to resume his normal political activities and public engagements following clearance from his doctors”.
