Amidst growing concerns on the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari, a former Special Adviser to late President Umaru Yar’Adua, Segun Adeniyi, said the drama surrounding Buhari’s health might have just begun.
Adeniyi, who served as the spokesman for Yar’Adua when the ex-President was sick and was incommunicado for several weeks, said this in a message on his official Twitter handle.
Adeniyi’s tweet comes on the eve of the seventh anniversary of Yar’Adua’s death.
He said, “Going by feelers from Aso Rock, the real drama of the health challenge of President Buhari may have just started.”
The Nigerian Medical Association, on Thursday, explained why Buhari should disclose his health status to Nigerians.
The NMA President, Prof. Mike Ogirima, who gave the explanation in an interview with Punch, said Buhari’s disclosure of his health status would douse tension and give Nigerians the facts.
Many Nigerians, including Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, had asked the President to disclose the state of his health to Nigerians.
Soyinka, at a press conference in Lagos on April 28, said Buhari’s failure to publicly disclose his state of health had increased political manipulations in the country.
The Nobel laureate had asked, “Why is the President hiding his state of health? He’s supposed to understand he’s public property; me, I’m still private property, that’s why I’m not in Aso Rock.
“Let him address the nation and stop all these speculations which create unnecessary political manipulations among other things.”
