Rumours about the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, having a critical health challenge has again been fueled.
Tinubu was absent on Thursday as presidential flag bearers of various political parties were physically present to sign the 2023 election peace pact.
Former military Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar chaired the peace pact ceremony organized by the National Peace Committee (NPC).
The absence of Tinubu who was represented by his vice presidential candidate has further fueled lingering speculations around his health.
See how Nigerians are reacting:
Let it be on record that your leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who believes the office of President is his birthright, is intentionally absent from the symbolic Peace Accord signing ceremony of Presidential candidates in the forthcoming presidential elections. pic.twitter.com/wubV6Ycko2

No way should anyone be signing a peace accord on behalf of anyone! Bola Ahmed Tinubu has to sign for himself.

I keep telling us that Shettima is the presidential candidate of the APC come 2023 general election. Even Sowore, a presidential candidate is made to sit behind. Think people, think!#PeterObi4President

Peter Obi, Atiku and Kwankwaso are present live at the National Peace accord in Abuja. But what is Shettima doing there? Is he the presidential aspirant for the APC? Where’s Tinubu? Where’s BAT? A proud and unhealthy man has no place in our Villa. pic.twitter.com/UArC1GDRXP
