The news with a video has been flying since 18 hours ago, first from late Saturday night, that Bola Tinubu slumped at a function in Kaduna state, but 9News Nigeria has confirmed the news to be misleading.
The All Progressives Congress party chairman and 2023 presidential candidate hopeful, Bola Ahmed Tinubu was seen in an amateur video as he stumbled into a table, staggered and about to fall down, but was saved by his aides.
The APC National Leader attended a ceremony at Arewa House in Kaduna State on Saturday as he was invited to chair the 11th Annual Arewa House Lecture.
Every year, the Arewa House Lecture Series is held in honour of Sir Ahmadu Bello, the late Sardauna of Sokoto, one of Nigeria’s post-colonial kings. The event offers a platform for influential elder statesmen and other notable Nigerians to discuss national issues.
It was gathered that the Northern Youths under the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) strongly opposed Tinubu’s invitation to the gathering, warning Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje not to extend an invitation to the former Lagos State Governor.
Meanwhile, the invitation had no impact on the organizers, as Tinubu made a point of attending the event on Saturday. Tinubu, on the other hand, came close to collapsing like US Vice President Joe Biden but was quickly helped to prevent the APC National Leader from collapsing.
