Going by the latest statement from the presidency on the health situation of President Muhammadu Buhari, former Kaduna State governor, Balarabe Musa, has said that the president appears to be having serious health issues.
Balarabe stated this while talking to Vanguard about the latest statement released by Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi 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,” the statement read.
Balarabe, who expressed doubt about Buhari having knowledge of the statement, said going by it, the President is in a very bad health condition.
“They are taking Nigerians for granted. Nigerians have to be taken into consideration because for the Presidency to make such statement shows that the situation is critical. It also means they are taking us for a ride.
“This was the same way the late Umaru Yar’Adua’s health was handled. As for me, I hope the President is aware of this latest statement because as far as I am concerned, he may not have said it. The Federal government should make sure that Nigerians know the truth, we cannot continue to be left in the dark,” the 80-year-old told the paper.
