President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, has explained why the president can’t walk properly.
Onanuga disclosed that his principal still nurses a knee injury.
He made the disclosure while stressing that Tinubu was not nursing any other ailment.
In 2021, Tinubu had knee surgery in London, which was before he commenced his presidential campaign.
However, Onanuga said the surgery was responsible for the president’s inability to walk properly.
Responding to questions from Tribune, the presidential aide said Tinubu is not sick.
According to Onanuga:
“No, he was not sick. We made this clear to Nigerians. Tinubu was as fit as the fiddle in the run-up to that election.
“Before that campaign began, I think a year before, he went for knee surgery, which was not a secret as President Buhari even went to see him in London when he was recuperating.
“So, that was what he went to do – knee surgery. That was why he could not walk properly.
“When you do knee surgery, you cannot walk like a 25-year-old man. He is still nursing it up till now because it was a major surgery. It is not that he has any other ailment.”
