The Presidency has said that President Bola Tinubu “is still nursing” the knee surgery he underwent in the United Kingdom in 2021 before he became President.
“He is still nursing it up till now because it was a major surgery. It is not that he has any other ailment.”
Special Adviser to the President on information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, in a recent interview with the Nigerian Tribune, said: “when you do knee surgery, you cannot be walking like a 25-year-old man.”
Onanuga recalled that prior to the declaration of his presidential ambition and flag off of campaign in 2022, Tinubu had made a medical trip to London for the knee surgery.
According to Onanuga, Tinubu has no other ailment but is still nursing the knee surgery.
“No, he was not sick. We made this clear to Nigerians. Tinubu was as fit as a fiddle in the run-up to that election.
“Before that campaign began, I think a year before, he went for knee surgery, which was not a secret, as President Muhammadu Buhari even went to see him in London when he was recuperating.
“So, that was what he went to do, knee surgery. “That was why he could not walk properly.”
