The All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on Sunday denied withdrawing from the 2023 presidential election.

The former Governor of Lagos State who shared a short video of himself on a treadmill, debunked rumours making the rounds that he is not contesting in the forthcoming race again.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last Wednesday raised an embargo on the presidential campaign.

Recall that Tinubu travelled out of the country a few days before the commencement of the 2023 presidential campaign.

There are speculations that Tinubu travelled out of Nigeria for medical reasons, speculation which has been denied by his loyalists.

A loyalist of the APC presidential candidate had claimed that Tinubu travelled out of the country to rest ahead of the camp season.

Tinubu in the video stated that some people have claimed that he has died, while others said he has withdrawn from the presidential race.
