Standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming presidential election, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Monday hit back at critics shaming him on health grounds.

Tinubu stated that he was physical strong to be president of Nigeria.

The former Lagos State Governor travelled to Saudi Arabia to perform Lesser Hajj.

While speaking to a Kano-based radio station, Freedom Radio, before departing the holy land, Tinubu said: “I just finished performing the Umrah.

“I did the seven rounds of Tawaf and the seven trips between Safa and Marwa by myself. Can a sick person do that? That is stale news, my brother.

“People who are making those insinuations have nothing else to say but lies and rubbish.

“I have moved around, spoken on different platforms and stood for hours to address different audiences.

“Before, they said I could not walk. They said I could not stand but they are shamed.

“Since the campaign started, I have marshalled more original ideas than anyone else.

“I have demonstrated knowledge, experience and a great capacity to be on top of issues in the country.

“And this job is about ideas and issues regarding the leadership of our country.

“I have all it takes to be the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“I am asking people of the country to have confidence and respect for that, look at my background and my previous assignments.

“I want to serve the country and serve the country very well.”

“It is a trip for spiritual rebirth. I like coming to perform the Umrah now and then. It is an opportunity to connect with Almighty Allah, Lam ya lid wa lam yulad.

“We need his guidance. Nigeria needs prayers and that is why we are here praying for our country, self and society.”
