Bola Tinubu, former Lagos State governor, says he has not contracted the coronavirus disease as reported online.
An online publication had on Sunday morning reported Mr Tinubu as contracting the pandemic disease.
The report which said the politician was battling with the disease added that he was flown to France for treatment even before last year ended.
But in a statement through his media aide, Tunde Rahman, the former governor’s aide said Asiwaju, as he is fondly referred to, is in London relaxing and has no health challenge.
Mr Rahman described the report as a lie from the pit of hell.
“Asiwaju is very okay. He is very fine and not sick. He does not have COVID-19,” the media aide said.
“If you must know, we have done COVID-19 test 15 times, each time he felt we had travelled and mingled with many people and could be vulnerable even though he always wore his face mask, but he has been certified negative 15 times.
“Yes he is abroad. Not in France, but in London resting. So you can see the falsity in that information”, Rahman added.
