The office of the President-elect has clarified rumours concerning the trip to Europe embarked upon by Bola Tinubu.
Tunde Rahman, a media aide to Tinubu, on Wednesday, confirmed to PM news that the president-elect left the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja for Europe on Tuesday night.
Rahmad, however, noted that the trip was not to because Tinubu fell ill as reported by Sahara Reporters.
The media aide noted that “after a very exhaustive campaign and election season, President-elect, Asíwájú Bola Tinubu, has travelled abroad to rest and plan his transition programme ahead of May 29, 2023 inauguration.
“The President-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting that begins Thursday.
“While away, the President-elect will also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme. He is expected back in the country soon.”
Rahman, however, enjoined some sections of the media to stop publishing rumours and unsubstantiated claims and to always seek clarifications from the office of the President-elect.
