Asiwaju Tinubu thanked President Muhammadu Buhari, and other political leaders, who took time out of their busy schedule to visit him in London.


“Asiwaju, first and foremost, would like to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for taking the time to visit him in London, to express his wishes for a speedy recovery from the knee operation.
