Mr. Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Information and Strategy, has clarified that the President is currently in the process of recovering from knee surgery performed in London.
In 2021, Tinubu underwent knee surgery in London, which occurred before the start of the general election campaign.
Responding to inquiries about the President’s health, Onanuga explained during an interview with Nigerian Tribune that Tinubu is not suffering from any other ailment but is still in the process of recovering from the knee surgery.
He stated, “No, he was not sick. We made this clear to Nigerians. Tinubu was as fit as a fiddle in the run-up to that election. Before that campaign began, I think a year before, he went for knee surgery, which was not a secret as President Buhari even went to see him in London when he was recuperating.
“So, that was what he went to do – knee surgery. That was why he could not walk properly. When you do knee surgery, you cannot be walking like a 25-year-old man. He is still nursing it up till now because it was a major surgery. It is not that he has any other ailment,” Onanuga affirmed.
