The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candida, Bola Tinubu, has been criticized by many Nigerians for dozing off on Saturday, during a meeting with the Emir of Gombe, Abubakar Shehu-Abubakar.
Naija News reports that some Nigerians have consistently raised concern about the frailty of Tinubu’s health as not fit to become president.
Tinubu, who was in Gombe to attend the wedding of Misbahu Inuwa Yahaya, son of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, decided to stop by for a brief homage and political meeting at the Emir’s Palace, accompanied by political bigwigs including Senate President, Ahmed Lawan.
During the meeting, Tinubu was captured sleeping while Lawan was seen holding the microphone and addressing attendees in the emir’s palace.
This has generated outrage online with many critics saying it is another evidence of his weakness and possibly needs rest, instead of running for president.
