Tunde Rahman, a media aide to Tinubu, spoke on Wednesday after reports claimed the president-elect is sick.
Tunde Rahman, a media aide to Tinubu has revealed why President-elect, Bola Tinubu traveled out of the country.
Rahman confirmed on Wednesday that Tinubu left the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja for Europe on Tuesday night.
Rahmad, however, noted that the trip was not to because Tinubu fell ill as reported by Sahara Reporters.
The media aide noted that “after a very exhaustive campaign and election season, President-elect, Asíwájú Bola Tinubu, has travelled abroad to rest and plan his transition programme ahead of May 29, 2023 inauguration.
“The President-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting that begins Thursday.
“While away, the President-elect will also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme. He is expected back in the country soon.”
Rahman, however, enjoined some sections of the media to stop publishing rumours and unsubstantiated claims and to always seek clarifications from the office of the President-elect.
