Bola Tinubu, Nigeria’s president-elect, has returned to Nigeria after spending over 30 days on vacation in France.
Announcing his arrival on Twitter, Bayo Onanuga, the former head of media & publicity of Tinubu’s campaign council, wrote; “Jagaban lands in Abuja!”
Tinubu left the country for France on Tuesday, March 21 to rest and plan the transition programme ahead of his inauguration on May 29.
The trip elicited speculation and controversy about the state of health of the president-elect.
While away, Tinubu was also alleged to have held a secret meeting with Olukayode Ariwoola, the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), in the UK – a claim that had been denied by the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential campaign and the supreme court.
On May 29, the former Lagos governor will be sworn in as Nigeria’s president to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari who would be completing his two terms of eight years
