Ayo Oyalowo, a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is currently taking a break in the UK before the election season.
The Party Chieftain stated this during his appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Monday.
He said, “the man, like i said, needed a few days off because the pressure on him is a bit too much and he needed to rest because the campaign is pretty long – we have about four, five months to campaign before the general election.”
“So, he needs to ensure that he is not worn out by the show of love, and camaraderie – too many people coming to see him. So, yes, he needed to take that breather.”
His remark came in response to the responses to Tinubu’s absence from the nation. The APC candidate was not there when presidential flagbearers signed a peace agreement prior to the election of next year, which sparked questions about the location and fitness of the former governor of Lagos State.
After concerns about his health surfaced, Tinubu published a seven-second training video to reassure the public that he is healthy and prepared to represent Nigeria. The video has sparked a wave of critiques.
However, the APC leader claimed that Tinubu is the “primary element” leading up to the 2023 elections.
“Two people dropped videos yesterday. Another person dropped a dancing video but nobody is talking about it because he is not a factor. Asiwaju is a factor,” he said about reactions generated by the video where Tinubu was seen on a treadmill.
“He will always be spoken about because he matters. He is the main factor in this election.”
