President Muhammadu Buhari is not sick. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the report in the media that the President was ill is untrue.
He dismissed the report , saying the President was hale and hearty.
The “purported illness is a fabrication which is not good for the media’s image”.
President Buhari on Friday separately received a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and some other visitors. The President also observed juma’at prayer at the State House mosque on Friday.
“It is not true. It is the imagination of the writer. The President is fine and has been performing his duties”, Adesina said.
The report had claimed that the President was ill with infection in his left ear, known as Meniere Disease, and that the President was being treated at the Presidential Villa by his personal physician and other experts from the State House Clinic.
The reportedly also claimed that the illness has reduced the President’s outings in the last one week.
