Joint National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will today go under the knife in the United States of America in connection with his knee injury.

A short statement released yesterday by the media office of the political godfather of Lagos explained that the injury has been aggravated by recent pressures and that surgery had become compulsory at this stage.

Tinubu, the two-time and immediate past governor of Lagos, has had a hectic schedule of late in connection with political activities that culminated in the successful merger and registration of Nigeria’s three major opposition parties now known as APC. He also underwent further pressures as a result of the death of his mother, Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji.

According to the statement: “Based on previous sports injury on one of his knees and recent further aggravation on the knee from rigorous political and family related activities, he has been advised by his doctors, despite his persistent reluctance that orthopedic surgery is necessary at this time.

“Former Governor Tinubu is expected to resume his normal political activities and public engagements following clearance from his doctors.”
