President-elect Bola Tinubu secretly flown abroad for Medication.

President-elect Bola Tinubu has been flown abroad on a secret trip overnight that could complicate the ongoing transition phase in the country, according to two of his associates who related with Peoples Gazette on the matter.

The associates declined to mention which country Mr. Tinubu was flown to, but they insisted it was not on a medical emergency but rather changed it to Lesser Hajj, said and he would soon return to the country. They spoke under anonymity with The Gazette because Mr. Tinubu’s team was still deliberating a press statement on the matter.



Sahara Reporters was the first to report the news of Mr. Tinubu’s trip on Wednesday afternoon, with the online outlet citing its sources that said the new Nigerian leader was flown to Europe for medical treatment.

Sahara Reporters also said Mr. Tinubu, who was declared winner of Nigeria’s presidential election last month, took ill after months of uninterrupted political activities that peaked towards the end of the year-long campaign.

Bayo Onanuga, a spokesman for Mr. Tinubu, said in a message to The Gazette that his principal traveled abroad to rest and will soon return to the country.

“He traveled to rest after the hectic electioneering,” Mr. Onanuga said. “Will soon return home.”



Mr. Tinubu, 70, could find himself explaining yet again his medical status that has drawn keen interest from a skeptical public.

In recent years, Mr. Tinubu has made several emergency trips abroad, including in late January 2022 when he was rushed to London while the primary campaign was underway.
