Dino Melaye, one of the spokespersons for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Council has given reasons why Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Party (APC) missed the “all-important” commissioning of the Lekki Deep Sea Port in Lagos.

According to him, the former governor of Lagos broke down after the Bauchi rally.

Recall that the rally in Bauchi ended abruptly when attendees broke the barricades and swamped the stadium.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari, Kashim Shettima, Tinubu’s running mate; and other chieftains of the ruling party, flew from Bauchi State to Lagos on Monday afternoon, with the president commissioning the Lekki Deep Sea Port.

A state banquet was also held after the project commission.

“Tinubu couldn’t attend the all-important commissioning in Lagos because he broke down after the failed Bauchi rally.

“His Chinese doctors are working on him as usual for revival. May God save Nigeria and Nigerians from this calamity. Amen,” Melaye wrote on his known Twitter handle.
