APC Chieftain and Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, says he is alive and well.
The Presidential Candidates''s notable absence from the peace accord recently signed in Abuja has raised rumours that his health has deteriorated.
Tinubu’s health has been a topic of discussion since his declaration of interest to be the Country's next president.
Responding to the rumours, the APC Candidate posted a short video of himself on a thread mill and wrote: “Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign.
"Well… Nope. This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy and I am READY to serve Nigerians from Day One.”

Amid the storm over Tinubu’s absence, Ayo Oyalowo, a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Council had said the presidential candidate was resting in London.
Speaking on an ARISE TV Programme, Oyalowo said, “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is in London. He cannot rest in Lagos, they will not let him rest.
"He came to Abuja most of the time, and they will still not let him rest. This man has been working for an average of 20 hours in the 24 hours in each day.
"So reasonable people thought he should leave the country because people will not let him rest since the campaign is coming soon.
“The invitation for the peace accord came after Tinubu left the country. Even his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, was not in town, he had to leave what he was doing in Maiduguri.”
