Pictures: “Healthy” Tinubu doses off while meeting with Gombe’s Emir

Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, dozed off on Saturday during a meeting with the Emir of Gombe, Abubakar Shehu-Abubakar, raising further questions on his frailty and the state of his health.

The picture of a snoozing Tinubu has since gone viral and has been making the rounds in WhatsApp groups.

This is coming barely days after the APC Presidential Campaign Council claimed its flag-bearer, Bola Tinubu, is “hale and hearty”.

Quest Times understands that Tinubu was in Gombe primarily to attend the wedding of Misbahu Inuwa Yahaya, son of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya. He then stopped by for a brief homage and political meeting at the Emir’s Palace, accompanied by political bigwigs that included Senate President Ahmad Lawan and federal cabinet secretary Boss Mustapha.

According to sources, Tinubu and his allies were at the palace to seek the support of the top northern monarch for his 2023 presidential ambition.

As the meeting got underway, Mr Tinubu was captured sleeping while Mr Lawan was holding the microphone addressing attendees at the Emir’s living room.

It was not immediately clear why Mr Tinubu dozed off, but speculations are rife on social media about the development, with critics saying it was yet another evidence of his weakness; while his supporters say he was barely ‘meditating’.

Conversations surrounding Tinubu’s health have dominated social media discourse since the septuagenarian declared he would be running for President of Africa’s most populous nation in January.
