The All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos State.
In viral photos, the former Lagos State governor was accompanied by some aides at the airport.
When contacted, Tinubu’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman, told The PUNCH that his principal “came back into the country today after a trip overseas”.

He, however, did not disclose the purpose of the trip or the country visited.
Tinubu was conspicuously absent last Thursday when the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), visited Lagos and commissioned some projects.
Many APC stalwarts including Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, amongst others, were present at the occasion.
However, Tinubu’s unusual absence fueled speculations about his health with some news platforms (not The PUNCH), saying things have fallen apart between the Jagaban of Bourdillon and Buhari but the Presidency has since refuted the reports.
