Abuja - Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has insisted that the number one citizen is not ill, but only going for a 10-day rest in London, and deserves the prayers of Nigerians.
Buhari left Abuja on Monday for London where he may now extend his scheduled 10-day leave, according to News24 report.
Adesina said, “The buzz going round town is that the President is ill, but ‘ill’ will be a misnomer, it should not be the right word to use. The President is going for a 10-day rest and during that period he will see specialists who will look at his ear because he has been treating that ear locally for some time.” Adesina was quoted as saying by Daily Post.
“Nigerian physicians have looked at it and now they have said you are going to UK, now that you will be there, let specialists look at the ear.

“They have treated it locally so it is not a question of whether the President is ill. If he is ill, it presupposes that there are certain things that he cannot do.
He also called on well-meaning Nigerians to remember the president in prayers.
“We need to underscore that. Rather than going into a frenzy I will urge Nigerians to just show goodwill and patriotism, they should pray for him and wish him well.For the latest on national news, politics, sport, entertainment and more follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page.
