Festus Keyamo (SAN) maintained that there is absolutely no basis for the discussion about Bola Tinubu’s health as the 2023 election draws near.
Nigerians have expressed concern over Tinubu’s health, with many claiming that he frequently travels abroad for medical care, lacks coherence in his talks, and occasionally has weak hands, which some think is a symptom of Parkinson’s disease.
However, Keyamo, who is also the Minister of State for Labor and Employment, claimed that his principle is in good health, to run Nigeria.
There is absolutely no basis for the claims made about Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s health, Keyamo told Punch in an interview that was published on Saturday.
“On the health condition of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, there is no basis for it at all,” Keyamo told Punch in an interview published on Saturday.
“Asiwaju has been more active than everybody on the campaign. We want to also ask; what is the basis for this suspicion? Has Asiwaju at any time collapsed in public? Did he at any time show any sign of ill-health?
“The only time as far as I can remember is when he went for a knee cap operation, which is just to strengthen him the more and after then he has been bouncing all over the place. You can see him climbing chairs going up and down.
“So, the issue of health is not a factor against him. If it is against him, which means it will also be against Atiku Abubakar, who also went for treatment recently in Dubai,” he said.
