BREAKING: Tinubu Departs Nigeria For France

The 2023 Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, will arrive in Lagos on Sunday, 12 days after he won the party’s presidential primaries.

Naija News reports that Tinubu will be hosted at a reception organised by the Lagos State Government at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere area of the state.

The spokesman for Tinubu’s Campaign Organisation, Bayo Onanuga, made the disclosure in a short statement on Saturday evening.

“Tinubu is indeed coming today. He will be hosted by the Lagos State Government and a reception is being arranged for him,” he said.

Also reacting, members of the Lagos State Governance Advisory Committee in a statement on Saturday disclosed that Tinubu will be arriving in the state today.

“On behalf of the teeming members of the APC, we welcome home the presidential candidate of the party and Asiwaju of Lagos, His Excellency Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Your resounding victory in the presidential primary of the party is a national endorsement, an eloquent testimony of your pan-Nigerian outlook and disposition.

“You were chosen for being a firm believer in the Nigerian project and a tireless advocate of the nation’s prosperity and the general well-being of all, regardless of creed, geography or background.

“Welcome back home, the visioner of a prosperous Lagos, the worthy flag bearer of our great party,” part of the statement read.
