Could there be more to the health of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu than we know as Rabiu Kwankwaso, presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), has warned him to take care of his health.
The health of Tinubu has been a source of worry for many Nigerians since his declaration to contest for the office of president.
However, Kwankwaso seems to have spoken the mind of many Nigerians in an interview with Arise Television on Sunday.
“If you see my friend, Bola, tell him to take it easy, take good care of his health and make sure that… because I love him so much, he is my friend.
“This campaign is very rigorous; it requires a lot of effort and so on and so forth. I hope he will take it easy so that we can continue the struggle to ensure one solid and prosperous Nigeria.”
While Tinubu has announced Kashim Shetimma, former Borno governor as his running mate, Kwakwanso is expected to announce his own soon but said he is unafraid of Tinubu’s choice.
My worry for Tinubu’s campaign
“My only worry is the platform. This platform I don’t know. I know he is a strategist, Bola Tinubu, he is a good man. I had reasons to sit with him uncountable number of times from 1992 to date.
“I wish I will see him to ask him what he will tell Nigerians what he will do differently from what Muhammadu Buhari is doing today. That is my serious concern for him. Ordinarily, if I cannot get it, I can recommend him but it’s going to be like building something on zero.
“When I see him, I wish him well or when you see him before me, tell him I wish him well — but let’s take it easy,” he said.
