The National leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said that all things being equal, he will not return to London for another treatment.
Tinubu, who expressed appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari for visiting him in London during the period of his surgery, arrived Lagos Friday night from the United Kingdom.
He disclosed that he only underwent surgery on his right knee as well as post-surgery physiotherapy after the operation.
A statement from his media office said the former Lagos State governor appeared cheerful on arrival, adding “His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu returned to the country, landing in Lagos Friday evening, October 8. He arrived from London, United Kingdom”.
“During his trip abroad, he underwent surgery on his right knee as well as rigorous post-surgery physiotherapy on the said knee. Contrary to unfounded rumour, he underwent no other surgical procedures and contemplates none in the future.
“His recuperation has been without complication and ahead of the schedule by the attending surgeon. He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation.
“Asiwaju, first and foremost, would like to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for taking the time to visit him in London to express his wishes for a speedy recovery from the knee operation.
“He thanks House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, governors, party leaders, members of Northern Caucus of the House of Representatives, members of the Lagos State House of Assembly and indeed many others who called on him in London to wish him well”.
“He is also not forgetting others who would have loved to visit him but couldn’t make it and his numerous friends, associates, supporters and well wishers who have been with him in prayers and supplications to Allah”.
