In response to growing speculation and questions surrounding the president’s prolonged absence from public appearances, the presidency has shared photographs of the Nigerian leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, at Aso Villa.
The president’s absence from public events and official functions has recently raised concerns and triggered discussions across the country.
Reuben Abati, a well-known political commentator, TV host and former presidential spokesperson, had publicly queried the extended period of the president’s absence from public view.
To address these concerns, the presidency released photographs depicting Tinubu receiving briefings from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator George Akume, at Aso Villa.
The images serve as a gesture to reassure the public of the president’s presence and activities within the presidential residence.
The photos, which were released on the president’s official X page had the caption:
”Moving Nigeria Forward. Received a briefing from SGF Akume at the State House this morning.
”All hands must be on deck in the great task of positioning our dear nation for progress.”
