Tinubu Still Recovering from Knee Surgery – Presidency 


Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Information and Strategy, has provided an update on the president’s health status. Onanuga disclosed that President Tinubu is still in the process of recovering from the knee surgery he underwent in London.

Responding to a query about Tinubu’s well-being, Onanuga highlighted that the president is actively engaged in his recuperation following the surgical procedure conducted in 2021.

He said, “No, he was not sick. We made this clear to Nigerians. Tinubu was as fit as the fiddle in the run-up to that election. Before that campaign began, I think a year before, he went for knee surgery, which was not a secret as President Buhari even went to see him in London when he was recuperating.

“So, that was what he went to do – knee surgery. That was why he could not walk properly. 

“When you do knee surgery, you cannot be walking like a 25-year-old man. He is still nursing it up till now because it was a major surgery. It is not that he has any other ailment.” he said.

The surgery took place in London prior to the onset of the general election campaign.
