The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has again defended his fitness, saying no ailing person can successfully perform seven trips as he did at Umrah.

Tinubu made the statement in an interview with Kano premier independent radio station, Freedom Radio, in Saudi Arabia shortly before he returned to the country.

Umrah is an Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca that is undertaken at any time of the year, in contrast to the Ḥajj, which has specific dates according to the Islamic calendar.

He said, “I just finished performing the Umrah. I did the seven rounds of tawaf and did the seven trips between Safa and Marwa by myself. Can a sick person do that? That is stale news my brother.

“People who are making those insinuations have nothing else to say but lies and rubbish. I have moved round, spoke at different platforms and stood for hours to address different audiences. Before they said I could not walk. They said I could not stand but they are shamed.
