Health: I Need Longer Time To Rest – Buhari


After weeks of rigmarole over his health status by some government officials, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday asked for the understanding of Nigerians with regards to issues concerning his health.
Specifically, President Buhari, who is on medical vacation in London said in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina that he requires much longer time to rest thus no need to rush back to resume work.
The latest explanation by the presidency may have put paid to speculations and claims by top government officials that he is actually fit and healthy and was to return soon to resume work.
Buhari further explained that the rest was deserved following the results from the series of medical tests he carried out in the United Kingdom where he is on vacation.
He pointedly said he will be staying longer than expected in the United Kingdom just as he was full of praises to Nigerians for their prayers, good wishes and support stressing that there was no cause for alarm neither should people be troubled.
According to Adesina; “President Muhammadu Buhari thanks millions of Nigerians who have been sending good wishes and praying for his health and well-being in mosques and churches throughout the country.
“The President is immensely grateful for the prayers, show of love and concern. President Buhari wishes to reassure Nigerians that there is no cause for worry. During his normal annual checkup, tests showed he needed a longer period of rest, necessitating the President staying longer than originally planned.”
