President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife,
Aisha, has insisted that her husband’s health is bad, but not as bad as
being speculated in the media.
This came after the prolonged silence,
since the news went viral that her husband’s illness had worsened, after
coming back from the United Kingdom, UK, where he went on a medical
vacation, earlier in the year.
During his absence, there had been a lot of speculations about his health, amid calls for him to resign, from various quarters.
However, his wife has said that his
health is not that bad, as she insists the President can still carry out
his Presidential responsibilities.
Recall, that Buhari met with the
Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, Abubakar Malami, and Maikanti
Baru, the Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum
Corporation, NNPC, on Tuesday evening.
Below are Aisha’s tweets:
“I thank all Nigerians for their concern, love, and prayers, over my husband’s health status.
“I wish to inform everyone that his
health is not as bad as its being perceived. Meanwhile he continues to
carry out his responsibilities.
“During this period, as it may come to your notice, he is meeting with Minister of Justice and GMD of NNPC this evening.
“Long Live Nigerians; Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
