The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has returned to the country.

Tinubu returned to Nigeria on Friday, three months after he left for the United Kingdom for medical treatment.

The development was confirmed by Tinubu’s spokesman, Alhaji Tunde Rahman, in a statement on Friday.

Rahman said:

“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.”

Tinubu was received at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and chieftains of the APC.
