The Chief Whip of the Senate, and former governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu has defended the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, saying he has no health problem.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Tinubu has been heavily criticised by opposition supporters on the grounds that he has a failing health which they believe make him incapable of leading the country.
However, Kalu while speaking on Political Paradigm, a political pogramme of Channels Television on Monday, said the former governor of Lagos State is fit to rule the country.
According to Kalu, every Nigerian above 40 years old suffers from one form of health challenge or the other.
He said, “His (Tinubu’s) health is very stable. No man above 40 is not sick. There is not one, no Nigerian above 40 that is not sick,”
Commenting on the incoherent statements by Tinubu, Kalu said political opponents use the internet to manipulate Tinubu’s statements.
“These are things you people go to form on the internet. All these things can be forged by political opponents,” he said.
