Buhari will disclose his health status if need be – Femi Adesina
The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that only his principal can speak about details of his health.
Adesina, who was speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, urged Nigerians to pray for the president.
When quizzed about the actual health condition of Buhari, he replied: “I am sure it will get to a point when the President has to disclose the status of his health if it needs to be disclosed. If it’s something serious enough to disclose, I am sure he will disclose it.
“The President is the one who can release his own health status.
“The day he left, we still spoke. He didn’t tell me ‘this is my condition’. He told me he was going to rest and he would do medicals and that was included in the statement we released,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Adesina had released a statement, in which the President asked the National Assembly for an extension to his vacation.
The President left the country on a 10-day vacation on January 19.
