Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, Festus Kayemo described APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as ‘master of the game’ after returning to Abuja.
Tinubu returned to Nigeria on Thursday after 12 days in the United Kingdom (UK).
During his time away from the country, there had been criticism targeted at the APC over Tinubu’s absence from public events, including the signing of the peace accord on the 2023 elections.
There had also been allegations that his absence caused the party to postpone the inauguration of its presidential campaign council, which was earlier scheduled for September.
Amid the concerns over his whereabouts, Tinubu had, on Twitter, shared a video of himself on a fitness bike on October 2.
“Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign. Well… Nope. This is the reality: I am strong, I am healthy and I am READY to serve Nigerians from Day One,” he had tweeted.
In a tweet after Tinubu returned to the country on Thursday, Keyamo described the APC candidate as “the master of the game”.
“He teased them; he played mind games with them; their thoughts went wild; but @officialABAT is the master of the game. Just when they thought they had something on which to feast, he’s rather the one now feasting on their naivety. Welcome back, the City Boy!” Keyamo tweeted.
On his part, Tinubu told Nigerians that he is back to restore hope, promising to make Nigeria a better country for all.
