Watch as an aide wakes Bola Tinubu up while sleeping at an event below.
Newsone reports that a video has emerged showing the moment an aide walks up to Bola Tinubu who was sleeping, to wake the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) up at an event.
This online news platform understands that Bola Tinubu was dozed into a nap during a meeting with the Emir of Gombe, Abubakar Shehu-Abubakar over the weekend, in what could further suggest the frailty of his health as widely speculated by the opposition.
Newsone Nigeria learned that Tinubu was in Gombe primarily to attend the wedding of Misbahu Inuwa Yahaya, son of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya. He then stopped by for a brief homage and political meeting at the Emir’s Palace, accompanied by political bigwigs that included Senate President Ahmed Lawan and federal cabinet secretary Boss Mustapha.
According to sources, the APC standard bearer and his allies were at the palace to seek the support of the top northern monarch for his 2023 presidential ambition.
As the meeting got underway, Tinubu was captured sleeping while Senate President Lawan was holding the microphone addressing attendees in the emir’s living room.
It was not immediately clear why Tinubu dozed off, but speculations are rife on social media about the development, with critics saying it marked another evidence of his weakness while his supporters said he was barely ‘meditating’.
Days after supporters of the APC Presidential candidate had argued that Tinubu was not sleeping, a video emerged, showing the moment in which a man in a black suit, suspected to be an aide, approached the former Lagos Governor to wake him up while he was sleeping.

Meanwhile, Newsone reports that the 70-year-old Tinubu has been seen making incoherent remarks or tripping over in public in recent months. He has however dismissed public worries about his condition, saying that the job of president requires more intelligence than physical strength.
