The All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has confirmed his return to his house in Lagos State, barely three months after leaving the country for the United Kingdom where he underwent surgery on his right kneel.
Tinubu said that he returned to the country after been certified feet by medical experts that examined his right leg and that contrary to rumours, there was no other surgical operation performed on him while abroad.
The Lagos State former governor noted that he came back into the country on Friday and that the return was basically to contribute his quota to the development of Nigeria as well as advance the course of progressive democratic good governance throughout Nigeria.
Through a statement released by his Tinubu Media Office, Tinubu thanked President Muhammadu Buhari, governors, lawmakers, and other chieftains that visited him abroad and assured them that the solidarity visit aided his quick recovery.
The statement reads: “His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu returned to the country, landing in Lagos Friday evening, October 8. He arrived from London, United Kingdom.
“During his trip abroad, he underwent surgery on his right knee as well as rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy on the said knee. Contrary to unfounded rumour, he underwent no other surgical procedures and contemplates none in the future.
“His recuperation has been without complication and ahead of the schedule by the attending surgeon. He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation.
“Asiwaju, first and foremost, would like to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for taking the time to visit him in London to express his wishes for a speedy recovery from the knee operation.
“He thanks House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, governors, party leaders, members of Northern Caucus of the House of Representatives, members of the Lagos State House of Assembly, and indeed many others who called on him in London to wish him well.
“He is also not forgetting others who would have loved to visit him but couldn’t make it and his numerous friends, associates, supporters, and well-wishers who have been with him in prayers and supplications to Allah”.
