The former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, is presently in Paris for a medical checkup as his health is fast deteriorating.
According to SaharaReporters, Tinubu is currently battling some old-age ailments.
A source said, “Tinubu is in Paris, France for a medical checkup. His health is deteriorating due to old age.”
There is an indication that the APC leader wants to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, though he has not declared his intention.
The campaign poster of the former Governor was spotted in Abuja on Sunday, while bags of rice branded as ‘Jagaban Rice’, was spotted in Kano in April.
Tinubu had also been to Kaduna and Katsina states, which are among the states with the largest voting populations in the country.
The APC leader recently donated the sum of N50 million to victims of a recent fire outbreak at Katsina Central Market in Katsina State.
This was even as he paid sympathy visits to traders and other victims of the fire outbreak in company with the state governor, Aminu Bello Masari.
“Tinubu still wants to be president. This could mean another medical tourism presidency for our country,” another source told SaharaReporters.
In January 2021, Tinubu was reported sick and hospitalised in Paris, France.
Tinubu had earlier complained of exhaustion and travelled out to rest before the news of his collapse went viral.
He was flown to Paris for medical attention in the first week of January.
