The rumour making the rounds that National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is either dead or hospitalized, has drawn the reaction of his Special Adviser on Media, Tunde Rahman.
Rahman in a statement he released said it has been the stock-in-trade of the rumour mill to peddle death hoax about the former Lagos governor each time he is out of the country.
The statement reads in part: “His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is fine. He is hale and hearty. He is not in any hospital. He has no medical problem that would require hospitalisation.
“Yes, he is out of the country at the moment. He will be back shortly. Anytime he travels out of the country, the next thing some mischievous people would say is he is sick, hospitalized or has died.
“It is shameful that perpetrators of this evil are not deterred by the fact that each time this fake news has been propagated, they have been proven wrong.
“Who really is afraid of Asiwaju Tinubu? Those wishing Asiwaju Tinubu evil or dead should be careful. They should know the matter of life and death is in the hand of only God Almighty.”
