According to the report, the president is battling with an infection in his left ear, called Meniere Disease, a challenge which has drastically reduced his outings in the last one week.
It added that the president now suffers hearing impairment and routinely complains of severe pains and unusual sounds from that ear.
Buhari had on three recent occasions cancelled official trips within and outside the country due to the infection and was represented at those events by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
It has been gathered that he vice president would again represent the president at the 48th Ordinary Summit of Head of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) holding this weekend in Dakar, Senegal.
Premium Times, quoting multiple sources in the Presidency, reported that President Buhari got the ear infection about two weeks ago.
