Reactions As Tinubu Allegedly Travels To Europe For Medical Attention




Presidential Election Tribunal: Tinubu’s Lawyers Ban Media Interviews

Mixed reactions have trailed the reports that Nigeria’s president-elect, Bola Tinubu has reportedly travelled out to Europe for medical attention after falling ill.

According to a report shared on Wednesday by Sahara Reporters, Tinubu departed Nigeria for Europe on Tuesday night after falling ill on Saturday.

It was said the former Lagos State Governor started receiving treatment in Nigeria but decided to travel to Europe for better medical care.

Quoting an authoritative source, the platform claimed Tinubu fell ill after the “hectic” electioneering that led to his emergence as the ‘President-elect’ and the tension that built up ahead of the March 18 Lagos State governorship and House of Assembly elections where he also voted.

Following the development, some Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to react to the report that Tinubu has left the country to attend to his health after emerging as the president-elect.

See some of the mixed reactions below.

“I expect Tinubu to break that record, if he becomes the President.Why is he travelling abroad for medical treatmen. What happened to all the hospitals in Lagos state?”
