Several reactions have trailed the return of presidential hopeful, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinibu, to the country after spending 10 days in London, United Kingdom.
Naija News reports that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) returned to the country on Sunday afternoon ahead of the party’s national convention slated for February 26.
In a post released by his media aide, Tunde Rahman said the former Lagos governor arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
Rahman, while sharing a photo of his arrival on his social media page, said: “Asiwaju Tinubu on his return this evening from a trip abroad…”
Recall that Tinubu had in January declared his intention to contest in the 2023 presidential election after a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu had after consulting widely travelled to the UK in what many reports claimed was for medical vacation.
His aides however debunked such reports, stressing that the former governor was in the UK for further consultation.
However, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to drop their views regarding the return of the former Lagoa governor to the country.
