The presidency has denied reports that President Muhammadu Buhari is ill. His spokesman, Femi Adesina says the president is “as fit as a fiddle”.
He said the president when he received some dignitaries at the presidential villa in Abuja during the week.
TheCable quoted him as saying:
“Didn’t you see pictures of him receiving Anglican bishops yesterday (Friday)? Did he look sick? The president is as fit as a fiddle. Anyone who says he is sick is telling lies.
“That is a figment of the person’s imagination. Just yesterday he received the primate of the Anglican Communion and arch bishops at the presidential villa. He also received former President Olusegun Obasanjo (pictured). He is hale and hearty. The imagination of whoever says that is on overdrive.”
Premium Times had earlier reported that the president’s ear infection had worsened and that he is being treated at the State House Clinic. The report added that he may be flown abroad for medical treatment.
