The 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has travelled out of the country to France.
Tinubu’s spokesman, Tunde Rahman said in a statement in Abuja that Tinubu travelled early Monday morning after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
“He is off to Paris, France to hold some important meetings. The APC standard bearer is expected back in the country before Sallah celebration,” Rahman said in the statement.
He said before his departure, Tinubu attended the public presentation of a book titled “Mr. Speaker” and launch of legislative mentoring initiative in commemoration of the 60th birthday of Speaker of House Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
Recall that Tinubu emerged as presidential candidate of APC on June 8 at the party’s presidential primary and special convention.
The former two-term Lagos State governor had since his emergence embarked on a series of thank you and reconciliation visits to those who contested against him at the party’s primaries.
This included the seven aspirants who stepped down for him.
Meanwhile, the APC Buhari campaign office located in the Abuja Central Area has been redesigned and renamed Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Campaign Office by the party’s leadership ahead of 2023 electioneering.
