‘Tinubu Not Critically Sick With COVID-19’ – Media Aide



A former governor of Lagos State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu has not tested positive for COVID-19, his spokesman Tunde Rahman has disclosed.

Tinubu was rumoured on Sunday to have tested positive for the deadly disease in France before the New Year following reports by an online news platform.


However, in a short statement on Sunday night, Mr Rahman said his principal has done COVID-19 test 15 times and all results came negative.

He claimed that the report about the former governor was “a lie from the pit of hell.”


“Asiwaju is very okay. He is very fine and not sick. He does not have COVID-19. If you must know, we have done COVID-19 test 15 times, each time he felt we had travelled and mingled with many people and could be vulnerable even though he always wore his face mask, but he has been certified negative 15 times,” he said.

Although Rahman confirmed that Tinubu is not in Nigeria at the moment, he, however, said the ex-governor was not in France as reported.


“Yes he is abroad. Not in France, but in London resting. So you can see the falsity in that information,” the statement added.
