The health condition of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, has elicited worries amongst supporters and stakeholders after reports claimed that the several surgeries he underwent seemed to have “badly affected” his hands.
According to a report by SaharaReporters, Tinubu’s condition is presently so critical that the two hands shake violently and he has to lean on his guests to pose for photographs.
Political supporters and godsons of the APC leader continue to troop to London, United Kingdom, on a solidarity visit- the latest being the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
The two were pictured sitting while Tinubu tried to put away his walking stick, unlike when President Muhammadu Buhari visited mid-last month.
A close source to the APC leader stated that Tinubu makes serious frantic efforts to stand as his hands and legs currently fail him.
“Tinubu is in intense physiotherapy. The hands shake violently. The two hands are badly affected after several surgeries. You notice that when taking photos, he leans on his guests or gets sandwiched; to avoid the embarrassing conditions of the hands,” he added.
1st News had reported on August 12 reported that President Muhammadu Buhari visited Tinubu in London after his (Tinubu) second surgery at that time.
Tinubu had been seen with a walking stick during Buhari’s visit; after he underwent knee surgery at the John Hopkins University Hospital in Maryland, US.
The APC chieftain, it had been learned, left the US for the United Kingdom on crutches; a few days after the surgery.
The APC National Leader has been off official and party functions in the country for a while; amidst talks that he is being positioned for the 2023 presidency to succeed the incumbent repressive regime of Buhari.
“Tinubu is hospitalised in Maryland, US. His health is failing. He couldn’t participate in launching his Arewa library; and he couldn’t participate in the Local Government Area elections last week. He could not attend today’s APC congress due to health reasons. He had surgery last week,” a source disclosed.
