BREAKING: Sick Buhari Is Now Temporarily Under The Care Of One Special Woman, Not Aisha – Lai Mohammed Breaks Silence
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has broken his silence 72-hours after he and other members of media team visited ailing President, Muhamamdu Buhari, in London.
Speaking exclusively with New Telegraph, on Sunday night, Lai Mohammed stated that Buhari is back to his healthy and knowledgeable element.
Other members of the media team that visited Buhari at the Abuja House, London, are the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina; the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu; Personal Assistant on Digital Online Media, Lauretta Onochie; and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
Recall, that Buhari left for London on May 7, for medical attention over an undisclosed ailment, while handing over to his Vice, Yemi Osinbajo, as Acting President.
Lai Mohammed recounts: “Buhari also joked with Abike Dabiri that since she (Abike) is the Special Assistant to the President for Diaspora Matters and he is in the Diaspora, then he is temporarily under Abike’s jurisdiction.”
The Minister added: “The President we met was in very good health, hale and hearty. He has not lost his sense of humour. Interestingly too, he is quite aware of what has been going on around him, both locally and globally.
“I remembered when we told him that many people are praying for him both in and outside Nigeria, he replied that that is probably due to the role Nigeria played in resolving the Gambian conundrum. We also asked him about many things happening around the world, and he commented knowledgeably about them. This means that he is quite back to the element.
“When we asked him on when he wants to come home, he said henceforth he will listen to his Doctors. We said to him that as someone who gives orders, he has to obey orders now. He laughed about it and he said that this time he will obey his Doctors.”
On the state of health of the President, the Minister said: “There is nothing to fear about the President we met, he is ready to come home, and he is even more anxious than many of us. But he says he will not disobey his Doctors that have told him to stay a few more days, and ‘we will observe you and give you a clean bill of health.’ The President we met can clearly return to Nigeria and resume work.”
