“You People Should Let Baba Rest” – Nigerians React As Tinubu falls asleep in a meeting with Gombe’s Emir to solicit support

The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, fell asleep during a meeting to solicit support for his presidential race.


Tinubu flew from Abuja to Gombe on Saturday to attend the wedding of Misbahu Inuwa Yahaya, son of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaha.

As customs demanded, he took a detour to visit the Emir of Gombe, Abubakar Shehu-Abubakar, for a courtesy visit at the palace.

He was accompanied by some APC bigwigs, including the federal cabinet secretary boss, Mustapha, and the Senate President Ahmed Lawan.

But during the meeting, in a picture that has surfaced on social media, Mr. Tinubu is seen taking a nap as Lawan stood up to address the Emir.

The nap would buttress worries from many critics who believed the APC presidential candidate is frail.

The main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party, had alleged that Tinubu was battling health issues, a claim Mr. Tinubu’s camp has dismissed.

Tinubu has been seen tripping on his traditional clothes at an event and wearing wet clothes, making critics believe he peed and is currently wearing a pamper.

A video surfaced on social media where Mr. Tinubu’s hands were seen like someone who has Parkinson’s as he struggled to turn a page during a speech.

However, the 70-year-old runner argued that his job as president would entail using his intelligence and not physique.
