The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmad Tinubu, has dismissed reports of battling any serious health challenges.

Bellnewsonline.com reports that the former Lagos State governor described health issues associated with him as stale news.

Speaking in an interview with Kano’s premier independent radio, Freedom Radio, from Saudi Arabia, Tinubu disclosed that he had ‘just’ finished observing seven rounds between Safa and Marwa, which is impossible for an ill person.

On issues about his health, Tinubu said: “I told you where I am now. I just finished performing the Umrah. I did the seven rounds of tawaf, I did the seven trips between Safa and Marwa by myself. Can a sick person do that? That is stale news, my brother. People who are making those insinuations have nothing else to say but lies and rubbish.

“Yes, I am here in Saudi Arabia. It is a personal trip. It is a trip for spiritual rebirth. I like coming to perform the Umrah every now and then. It is an opportunity to connect with Almighty Allah, Lam ya lid wa lam yulad. We need his guidance. Nigeria is in need of prayers, and that is why we are here praying for our country, self and society.”

On boycotting interviews, the APC presidential candidate stated that he is engaging the masses directly and indirectly.

According to Bola Tinubu, he has moved round and spoken to people on different platforms, standing for hours.

He said: “What do you mean? Are we not having interviews now? I just finished talking to people through town-hall meetings and speaking directly to people. Those saying that are losers, and they will lose.

“I have moved around, spoken on different platforms, and stood for hours to address different audiences. Before, they said I could not walk; they said I could not stand. They were shamed. Since the campaign started, I have marshalled more original ideas than anyone else.

“I have demonstrated knowledge, experience and a great capacity to be on top of issues in the country. And this job is about ideas and issues regarding the leadership of our country.

“I have all it takes to be the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and I am asking the people of the country to have confidence and respect for that. Look at my background and my previous assignments. I want to serve the country and serve the country very well.

“By the engagements we are having, it is clear that we are going to win this election. As the elections draw closer, the signs are clear, and that is why our opponents are jittery. They have now resorted to peddling fake news and quoting some of my statements out of context just to score cheap points.”
