“Never a good sign when a presidential candidate feels the need to prove he is still alive” – Africa editor, The Economist on Tinubu

Jonathan Rosenthal, the Africa editor of the international newspaper, The Economist, has reacted to a video of the presidential flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, working out tremendously.

Tinubu had put out the video to debunk the alleged report that he had withdrawn from the presidential race due to his health.

In the video, the APC chieftain was working on a spin bike to dispel the rumours surrounding his health and well-being.

He captioned it; “Many have said I have died; others claim I have withdrawn from the presidential campaign.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.”

Reacting to the video that has elicited different reactions on the internet, Rosenthal said it is never a good sign when a presidential candidate feels the need to prove he is still alive.

Tinubu’s tweet said, “Oh dear, it is never a good sign in a presidential campaign when a candidate feels the need to prove he is still alive. #NigeriaDecides2023”
