Amid questions about his health status, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, says he is fit to run for the office.
The ex-Lagos governor who shared a workout video on his Twitter handle Sunday denied reports that he has withdrawn from the race.
Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign,” the APC candidate tweeted on his verified handle.
Well… Nope. This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy and I am READY to serve Nigerians from Day One.
Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign.

The former governor of Lagos State has recently been absent from political events, most notably the signing of a peace agreement by candidates for the presidency ahead of the election next year.
While the other candidates met at the Abuja International Conference Centre, Kashim Shettima, Tinubu’s running mate, was sent to speak on his behalf. Last Wednesday, the development sparked reactions and sent #WhereIsTinubu to the top trends on social media.
The former governor of Borno State represented him at the NBA conference in August as well.
