Tinubu returns to Nigeria after knee surgery abroad

The former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, returned to Nigeria Friday after weeks abroad during which he underwent ‘surgery on his right knee,’ his office has said.

Mr Tinubu, who is believed to nurse a presidential ambition, spent several weeks abroad, including at a London home owned by Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun, his protégé.

Premium times as part of its Pandora papers reporting showed how Mr Oyetola bought the controversial property, using offshore firms and accounts, from fugitive businessman Kola Aluko.

While staying in the house, Mr Tinubu hosted several guests including President Muhammadu Buhari and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila.

“He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation,” his office said.

His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu returned to the country, landing in Lagos Friday evening, October 8. He arrived from London, United Kingdom.

During his trip abroad, he underwent surgery on his right knee as well as rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy on the said knee.

Contrary to unfounded rumour, he underwent no other surgical procedures and contemplates none in the future.

His recuperation has been without complication and ahead of the schedule by the attending surgeon.

He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation.
