MISINFORMATION: Alhaji Rafiu Tinubu dead not Bola A.A. Tinubu

It was early in the evening hours yesterday when I overhead someone said: “Tinubu” as he pronounced it is dead. He went further on telling his listeners that “the former governor of Lagos state na, the man wey say make Edo people no vote for Godwin Obaseki. Abi una no see the picture for WhatsApp and Facebook”?

Interpretation: “the former governor of Lagos state, the man who asked the people of Edo state not to vote for Godwin Obaseki. Or didn’t you see the pictures on WhatsApp and Facebook”? He said.

As alarming as the news sounded, I knew there was a bit of falsitude in it and so the need to check and confirm the real gist.

After a little bit of search on Google and on some reliable sources and update on Wikipedia on the said governor, it is with this that villaupdates is bringing you the news that Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu the former governor and godfather of Lagos state is hail and hearty (sound and alive). Disregard every other news on social medias saying otherwise.

On the other hand, Alhaji Rafiu Tinubu is the former Head of Service in Lagos state, he died since last year September as news carries it, in Abuja on Wednesday, 04th September, 2019 at the age of 75 following a very brief illness.

The current governor of Lagos state Babajide Sanwo-olu however sympathized with Tinubu’s family, friends and associates.

“Alhaji Tinubu’s demise came at a time the nation and Lagos, in particular, needed his wealth of experience the most. As experienced administrator per excellence, we certainly will miss the late Alhaji Tinubu’s counsel on matters of importance in the state civil service.” Said the governor in a statement signed by Gboyega Akosile, Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State Governor.

Meanwhile, Bola A.A. Tinubu is sound and alive.
