Nigeria’s ‘President-elect’, Bola Tinubu is in Lagos to take a medical rest and see some of his doctors who had arrived in the country to give him follow-up medical care, SaharaReporters has gathered.
Some members of the medical team who treated Tinubu in France are already in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria to give the ‘President-elect’ follow-up treatment, which is the care given to a patient over time after finishing treatment for a disease
This involves monitoring a person’s health over time after treatment.
Tinubu last week returned to Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory after weeks of medical treatment in France.
Speaking to SaharaReporters on Monday, a source said the ‘President-elect’ who recently moved into the Defence House in Abuja ahead of his inauguration in May, flew to Lagos on Saturday to see his foreign doctors who are in the country.
Tinubu’s tongue was reportedly sticking out during the time his condition was severe.
“Tinubu’s ailment and health were in shambles before he left Nigeria to undertake treatment in a French hospital,” a source had said.
“The sickness was so severe that for five days during his hospitalisation, he could speak and had to be intubated,” another source had said.
“His tongue was reportedly sticking out,” one of the sources had added.
While addressing journalists shortly after his return, it was also noticed that Tinubu had a suspected peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC line) attached to his upper arm.
Pictures of him with the ‘medical device’ went viral on social media platforms.
According to medical experts, PICC is used to deliver medications and other treatments directly to the large central veins near your heart.
