Yobo dismisses Buhari’s fitness claims

Former Captain of the Nigerian Super Eagles, Joseph Yobo, has ridiculed the fitness claim by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Party, APC, after returning from London where he somehow went off radar to get allegedly get some rest.

Yobo noted that Friday March 7, 2015 was meant to be a day for the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the opposition APC to showcase their fitness levels.

He expressed his disappointment that the presidential candidate of the APC was obviously missing from a supposed one-million man match which would have been meant to prove his fitness level before his supporters.

“The job of President of a country with over 170 million people is a tasking one and surely it would have been convenient for a man who insists he was on a two-week rest to have at least walked with the people who will vote him for say one-thirds of the march?

“The party chieftains including Bola Tinubu and even its vice-presidential candidate, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo were present at the final stop, so why was the arrowhead of the campaign missing in action?” he said

In contrast, Yobo said President Goodluck Jonathan was seen jogging around and doing the hop in an aerobics session. He therefore concluded that in the real sense, President Jonathan is mentally and physically fit to rule Nigeria.

“As early as 8am, I and several other supporters of the President walked with him from Aso Rock to Eagle Square where we also jogged around.

“Some of the pictures from the walk have been swarming social media; one in particular stood out. It was that of President Jonathan doing the hop in an aerobics session. Pictures of him working out in the gym have surfaced from time to time and this further proved that the man is mentally and physically fit to rule Nigeria.” He disclosed.
