The Bola Tinubu media office has disclosed that the reason why the former Lagos governor and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been absent from public engagements in recent times is because he has had to contend with some health related issues.
The statement said that,
"Based on 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 brief statement said today.
"The surgery will take place this week, and Tinubu will resume normal political activities and public engagements once cleared by his doctors. "
The statement did not disclose where the procedure will take place.
