Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity has disclosed this morning  on Channels Television’s Daily Sunrise Programme that the President’s state of health is not as critical as being speculated by the populace.

Buhari who sent in a letter yesterday to appreciate the good wishes of Nigerians and their prayers, also disclosed that his vacation in the United Kingdom will be extended to complete and receive the results of series of tests recommended by his doctors.

When Adesina was asked to talk about Buhari’s current state of health, he responded: “The current health status of the president is that, it is not as terrible as people make it to seem. In his own communication, he (the president) says no cause for worry.”

He was also asked the exact time Nigerians are to expect the President back in the Country, Adesiana said: “He communicated to the National Assembly and that letter of communication is in the public domain. He said I will be away till my doctors rule out certain things.”

Adesina also said Buhari’s statement was misinterpreted by the media.
He said statement was in past tense, talking about Buhari’s health condition as of the time he was leaving Nigeria on January 19.

When asked again when the President is likely to return, he said: “Well, we do not know when he will be back, but when he is coming, he will communicate.”

According to him, President Buhari is an honest man “who does not want anything to be coloured on his behalf.”

“It is a matter of my personal decision and style (that I don’t talk directly to the president). All those I spoke with, his personal physician, his CD (Chief detail), his domestic aide, I can tell them to take the phone to Mr President that I want to speak to him. I know Mr President, he will speak with me. But I’ve decided not to talk to him because I do not need that telephone conversation to authenticate the health of Mr President.

There is enough authentication, there is one from the acting president, there is one from the Senate president and there is another from the speaker of the House of Representatives and many others. So, I do not need to authenticate the status of the health of Mr President by speaking to him.”
