Former Governor of Lagos State Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu will return to Nigeria on Saturday, October 5, 2013. A statement signed by Funsho Ologunde, on Friday said the former governor and leader of the All Progressive Congress(APC) will only address a press conference on arrival.
The press conference will take place aboard an Executive Jet, which is located between the Presidential Lounge of the Murtala Mohammed International Airport and the premises of the Nigeria Air Force. Tinubu has been away from Nigeria for more than one month reportedly for knee cap operation but there has been allegations that he was flown away to receive treatment for Parkinson syndrome.
The organisers said they opted to cancel the grand reception earlier scheduled for Onkan Stadium as part of respect for the late former Governor of Ondo State, Chief Olusegun Agagu and those who died aboard the the Ebraer 120 plane in the fleet of Associated airline conveying his corpse to Ondo State.
Meanwhile Agagu has been buried in Ondo State amid tight security.
