Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, on Sunday, January 24, arrived Nigeria after a month’s absence.

Tinubu was sighted at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, in the company of some of his aides.

“Asiwaju Tinubu is healthy and does not have COVID-19,” Tunde Rahman, his spokesperson, had said.

“He took his annual trip and as part of the preparation for the trip he took a COVID-19 test which was negative. Since the advent of the pandemic Asiwaju has always done his level best to observe, as strictly as humanly possible, all government advice and safety protocols to prevent the spread of the virus and to keep himself and those around him safe from harm.

It was reported on January 3 that he was hospitalised in Paris, France, after falling ill.

There were speculations that he tested positive for COVID-19 but his media team later denied such reports.
