The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has returned to the country after weeks in the United Kingdom. The whereabouts of Tinubu have been the question on the lips of some Nigerians in recent days.  

In a tweet on Thursday, presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, said Tinubu had returned to Abuja.   He said, “Our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has returned to Abuja from London.”   Tinubu has been away from the country for almost 12 days in the United Kingdom.  

His long absence has led to rumours about his health.     However, his campaign spokesman, Festus Keyamo, confirmed his return in a Twitter post.   Keyamo posted a video of Tinubu alighting from a plane and wrote: “The Eagle has landed”.
