At last, President Muhammadu Buhari has asked for Nigerians’ understanding about his health issues.
According to a statement by the President through his Media man Femi Adesina, he said that he requires a longer time to rest, and have no need to rush back to work.
President Buhari wrote to Nigerians through his aide, Femi Adesina on Tuesday saying 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.
Buhari, who noted that he is staying longer than expected in the UK, reportedly stated this in a four-paragraph statement through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
According to the statement, the president was full of praises to Nigerians for their prayers, good wishes and support adding that there was no cause for Nigerians to 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,” he said.
You can recall that shortly after Buhari embarked on his vacation few weeks ago, rumours spread over across the country that he was dead.
As if the rumours were real, the President who the country expected to be back in the country wrote to the National Assembly on the extension of UK vacation to enable him complete and receive medical results.
