A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has said that the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, does not have any health challenge.
Shittu, who appeared on Trust TV’s Daily Politics on Thursday, added that “Tinubu is as healthy and strong as anybody.”

He said, “Let me tell you, when the current president was sick, a lot of people took him for the dead. Today I can assure you he is stronger than you and I. He doesnt use walking stick, he is not aided, he is walking so is Asiwaju Tinubu.
“So you can imagine the difference in age between Asiwaju and President Buhari.”
The APC chieftain noted that aspiring to lead a nation is not about age.
The former Minister of Communications said leadership is not about age but dynamism, exposure, among others.
“It’s not about age to be a president; it’s not about physical labour. There is nothing to detract from the fact that Asiwaju is as healthy and strong as any other person around.
- “You need sound education, experience, exposure, dynamism but you also need good health and we are happy to say that there is no question about the health of Asiwaju, I can assure you,” he said.
