“This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy and I am READY to serve Nigerians from Day One.”
Reacting to this, Toyin Abraham who claimed she is not campaigning for Tinubu shared same video on her verified Instagram page and through her caption, insisted that the APC presidential candidate is indeed hale and hearty.
The mother of one urged her followers to give Bola Tinubu, the benefit of doubt, especially concerning his health. Toyin Abraham wrote:
“What else does Tinubu need to do to prove that he is not dying today? I am not campaigning for any candidate, just jumping on trending topic o. I am just a responsible citizen with PVC and power to chose who to vote for.”
