Buhari not having difficulty eating, drinking – Presidency

Last night, Sahara Reporters reported that President Muhammadu Buhari’s health had worsened and that he had to be given food and drinks intravenously.

But in a tweet in reaction to the report, the personal assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, described the report as untrue.

His words: “The story like many of its kind is untrue, as @GarShehu said on Thursday, there is no need for apprehension over President Buhari’s health.”


According to Sahara Reporters, three insiders in the Presidency revealed “that President Muhammadu Buhari is being fed intravenously as he has had severe difficulty eating and drinking fluids for several days.

“The sources also disclosed that, although President Buhari’s health had held up for a while after his return from an extended medical vacation in the United Kingdom, his condition has deteriorated in the last several weeks. They pointed to Mr. Buhari’s eating and drinking problems that have left him too frail to leave his official residence at Aso Rock Villa to attend any official functions”.
