FG Won’t Provide Updates on Buhari’s Health, Treatment!

It appears the Federal Government has ruled out the possibility of providing daily bulletin/update on President Muhammdu Buhari’s health status and treatment while in London, the United Kingdom.

Top Federal Government sources revealed that there was no need for such updates since Buhari had handed over to his deputy, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who is now the acting President.

The President had travelled to London last Sunday, almost two months after returning from the European country for medical treatment.

He had first left the country for London on January 19, 2017 and returned on March 10, 2017, in what would be his longest medical trip ever so far.

He had after returning to Nigeria confessed that he had never been that sick in his life, adding that he would again embark on another medical trip in the future.

There had been overwhelming calls from several sections of the country for the Federal Government to make the President’s health status public.

Having returned to London for another medical vacation, there had also been calls for the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, to provide daily updates on the President’s health.

Mohammed, had in December 2009, in his capacity as the spokesperson for the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, stated that, “The current situation, whereby ministers and aides of the President give out uncoordinated information on his health, is doing more harm than good.”

He was referring to the late President of Nigeria, Umaru Yar’ Adua.

He had said, “It is clear to discerning Nigerians that those pretending to speak authoritatively on the President’s health are deceiving the public since they are neither well-informed on the issue nor competent to speak on it.

“Therefore, a daily briefing by the Minister of Information, based on authentic details provided by the President’s doctors, should start forthwith. As we have said many times, the health of the President, as a public figure can no longer be of interest only to his family and friends. Nigerians have a right to know.”
