Since Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu travelled to London, United Kingdom for medical treatment, many prominent political icons, his political loyalists, beneficiaries and people from all walks of life have been visiting him to consolidate with him in London.

Among those that have visited Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in London were President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari; former Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun; Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi; Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu; former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulazeez Yari; some members of the National Assembly, among others.

However, there are some political loyalists of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed who worked with him, closely, when he was serving as the Executive Governor of Lagos State but have not visited the former Lagos State Governor in London. Unfortunately, most of these political loyalists of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who are yet to visit him in London, where he is receiving medical treatment, have undoubtedly enjoyed his political support when they needed him most.

One, former governor of Osun State and Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Abdulrauf Adesoji Aregbesola, is yet to visit Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in London.

It could be recalled that Ogbeni Abdulrauf Adesoji Aregbesola served as Commissioner under the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu between 1999 and 2007. Ogbeni Abdulrauf Adesoji Aregbesola was, openly, supported by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in his bid to become the Executive Governor of Osun State in 2007 General elections.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, also, supported Ogbeni Abdulrauf Adesoji Aregbesola throughout the legal tussles that followed the 2007 Governorship elections in Osun State. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, solidly, stayed with Ogbeni Abdulrauf Abdulrauf Adesoji Aregbesola until he regained his mandate as the duly elected governor of Osun State in 2010. Ogbeni Abdulrauf Adesoji Aregbesola is yet to visit his political benefactor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in London.

Secondly, former governor of Lagos State and Minister of Works, Babatunde Raji Fashola is another prominent beneficiary of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's political sagacity who has not paid him solidarity visit in London, till today.

Babatunde Raji Fashola also served as the Chief of Staff, Lagos State, under the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Lagos. Also, Babatunde Raji Fashola rode on the political benefit of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to become the Executive Governor of Lagos State in 2007.

Painstakingly, there was a revelation made by Tinubu, sometimes ago, that he withdrew his senatorial ticket in 2007 because he wanted to squarely face the electioneering campaign of Babatunde Raji Fashola, who was contesting the governorship seat of the state. For reason best known to him, Babatunde Raji Fashola is yet to visit Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in London, where he is receiving medical treatment.

Thirdly, Vice President (Professor) Yemi Osinbajo is one of the prominent beneficiaries of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's political doggedness who is yet to visit him in London.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo served as Commissioner under the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the Executive Governor of Lagos State. He worked, closely, with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the extent that he was, convincingly, picked by Asiwaju Tinubu as the presidential running mate to Muhammadu Buhari in the 2015 General Elections.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, also, rode on the political relevance of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to retain the vice presidential slot of All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019 General Elections.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo is yet to visit Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in London, where he is receiving medical treatment in London.
