Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has fired back at Nigerians condemning Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, stating that the All Progressive Congress presidential candidate is alive and owes no one proof.
He stated this early morning today while fielding questions on TV. Recall that there have been speculations that the APC’s candidate may be battling some health crisis following his absence at the recent signing of a peace accord agreement by presidential candidates of political parties.
Reports later emerged on Thursday that he is currently in London, United Kingdom.
However, Tinubu has also shared a video of himself working on a fitness bike to prove that he’s strong and healthy.
However, he failed to state why he was absent.
Reacting to the speculations, Governor Umahi stated that people asking about the health of the country’s leaders, including that of his party’s candidate, are being petty.
“Nobody is totally well, and nobody is totally sick; this is one point. Another point is that Nigerians are petty; some of us are petty.
“A man doing his walk-out, you know, is being videoed and circulated on social media without his knowledge.
“And so, a man that has life does not need to show any proof of life. Asiwaju has life, and he doesn’t need to show any proof of life, and you can see that.
“I think we should concentrate on tangibles because life is like being on the bus, and you don’t know where the next bus stop is.
“Some of the people talking about the health of the leaders of the country don’t even know when their bus stop is coming. So, we should rely on tangibles. Every life and health rests in the hand of God; that is how I look at it”, he said.
