The special assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has debunked claims that President Buhari is sick.
In an interview with The Cable, Adesina said publications about the President’s ill health were false as the President is hail and hearty.
“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.”
When asked why the President had in recent times delegated functions to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, He said:
“The presidency is one. The president has a right to delegate duties to his deputy, who is the vice-president, and that is what he has done.”
