He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the APC leader had surgery in the UK and he had to pay him a visit alongside Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu to show solidarity.
He added that people should know that his said his visit to Tinubu was not connected to the 2023 general elections in any way.
His words, “He (Akeredolu) and I were in London together to see our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, but it had absolutely nothing to do with 2023 presidential plans whatsoever. That’s not the reason why we went there.”
“Asiwaju had surgery, it is simply proper etiquette or behaviour both in the part of the country where I come from but also generally that when a friend and elder is undergoing health challenges, it would be improper on your part not to show solidarity and support.”
“That is simply what took us there; we wanted to associate ourselves with him at a time of need and as an elder, as a mentor and as a big figure in our political party, nothing wrong in paying him a courtesy visit to check on him to see how he was faring and we did that and we returned.”
“It has nothing to do with 2023; let me make that absolutely clear.”
