Adeboye Adebayo, a member of the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign council, allayed concerns over Bola Tinubu’s physical and health status on Wednesday.
Adebayo spoke at an event titled “Tinubu Manifesto: Speaking Directly To The People’s Needs & National Challenges” that was held at the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Office in Osogbo, Osun State. Adebayo also serves as the National Director, Media and Publicity, Asiwaju Project Beyond 2023.
He added that anyone attempting to utilize Tinubu’s health as a campaign issue would be unsuccessful since the APC presidential candidate is both physically and psychologically capable of leading the nation.
He said, “We all recall that early this year in January when he declared to contest for that office, Bola Ahmed Tinubu was seen traveling to the nooks and corners of this country campaigning and soliciting for the support of traditional rulers and Nigerians even before the primaries.
“He is here because he’s mentally alert and his intellect is sound. And don’t forget that up till today he has attended so many town hall meetings and rallies.
“We need to face issues. Is the man ready mentally? Does he have the intellectual capacity? Does he understand what we are talking about? Is his speech directed to issues that are happening around him? The answer is Yes.
“He is medically fit and intellectually capable to lead this country and no issue of health will stop him. Those planning to use health related issues to campaign against him will fail, they have failed already.”
