Today's Headlines: I’m Healthy, Just Undergoing Therapy - Tinubu, Zamfara Restores Services In Gusau

I’m healthy, just undergoing therapy, Tinubu tells northern lawmakers

All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu, says he is healthy but only undergoing physiotherapy in London.

Tinubu said this while addressing members of the House of Representatives northern caucus that visited him in London on Friday.

Addressing the gathering, Tinubu who was dressed in kaftan and a red cap said, “Because of God and people like you, I am well. It is just the physio (physiotherapy) that is gruesome.”

Telecom ban: Zamfara restores services in Gusau

Zamfara state has lifted the telecommunication ban in the state capital.

In a statement, the governor’s spokesperson, Zailani Baffa, said, “The restoration of the service at the state capital becomes imperative following the tremendous success recorded in the fight against banditry in the state and to ease the hardship faced by both the private and public sectors of the state,” Mr Baffa said in the statement.

He added, “Government finds it necessary to ease the tight measure after the recorded success desired of it which has no doubt destabilised the syndicate of criminals terrorising the state, leading to the successes recorded against them by the security operatives.
