Only God can take my life, Tinubu asserts


The National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has asserted that only God can take his life.

Tinubu stated this in reaction to the rumour of his death.

A welcome-back event was held in his honour at the State House in Marina, Lagos on Sunday.

Tinubu said, “I’m a little emotional now but I’m happy. God is the Giver of life and the only One who can take life. And He (God) says; if I grant you power and the privilege in this life; I am the only One who can take it from you if you don’t use it in the way and manner that promotes humanity. God can give power to anyone he wills.

“It is the same God that has spared us till today and has given us the privilege. I give glory to God, because I’m standing before you hale, hearty and well. Today is a day of joy for me, having fixed today for this great event. We are here giving praises to God. May God bless all of you in attendance. I am grateful. I cannot say more than that today. Thank you all,” Tinubu said.

It was gathered that Tinubu returned to Nigeria on Friday after spending over three months in London where he underwent knee surgery and physiotherapy.

Back in July while he was in the United Kingdom, Tinubu’s health had generated a lot of controversy and his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman, had a hectic time debunking death rumours.
