The spokesperson for the presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress Festus Keyamo has said Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is fit for the presidency, despite how the controversy surrounding his health is being “parroted”.
He stated this during his appearance on Arise TV’s morning show on Monday. He added that Tinubu had never collapsed or fallen anywhere before, therefore, asking for his health status was baseless.
“No matter how much they repeat it, no matter how much you parrot it, the fact remains that there is no evidence to the culturing that my candidate has some health issues.
“I have not seen anything happen to my candidate that has not happened to any other candidate. What has happened to my candidate? Has he fainted? Has he collapsed? Nothing has happened.
“There must be a basis by which somebody will say I need to disclose my health status,” Keyamo partly said, saying “there is absolutely no basis.”
Meanwhile, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment debunked that the inflation rate under President Muhammadu Buhari was not the highest in the history of the country.
He said this while responding to questions about what Buhari’s legacy Tinubu would build on in terms of economy and security, among others, if elected president.
Keyamo asserted that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, presided over the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, at which time inflation rates were at their highest.
“This is not the highest inflation rate. In 2005, under Obasanjo and Atiku, we had a 28 per cent inflation rate. Under Obasanjo and Atiku, we had the highest,” Keyamo said.
