President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, has insisted that her husband’s health is not as bad as being talked about.
Buhari returned from the UK on March 10 after a 50-day medical vacation, but has been hardly seen in public, before he returned to his desk on Tuesday afternoon.
During his absence, there has been a lot of speculation about his health, amid calls for him to resign from various quarters.
But his wife says his health is not that bad, as the president can carry out his responsibilities.
Buhari met with the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami and Maikanti Baru, group managing director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), on Tuesday evening.
Below are Aisha’s tweets:
“I thank all Nigerians for their concern, love and prayers over my husband’s health status. 1/4
“I wish to inform everyone that his health is not as bad as it’s being perceived. Meanwhile he continues to carry out his responsibilities. 2/4
“During this period, as it may come to your notice, he is meeting with Minister of Justice and GMD of NNPC this evening. 3/4
“Long Live Nigerians, Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria. 4/4”
