BUHARI’S HEALTH | APC, Osinbajo holds crucial closed-door meeting

by on February 7, 2017
 
A day after President Mu­hammadu Buhari wrote a letter to the National Assembly on his inability to re­turn home, the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and the leader­ship of the ruling All Progres­sives Congress (APC) on Mon­day held a closed-door meeting.
Osinbajo, who spoke with journalists after the meeting, de­clared that he could not disclose the health status of the President, whose non-return from London after a 10-day medical checkup has put the country on edge.
In his first press interview since he became Acting Presi­dent, Osinbajo told State House correspondents in his office in Abuja that Buhari is hale and hearty and that he spoke with him on phone earlier in the day to in­form him of the anti-government street protests.
He held the lengthy closed-door meeting with the APC Na­tional Chairman, Chief John Od­igie-Oyegun.
The Acting President main­tained that “the President is hale and hearty. I spoke to him just this afternoon and we had a long conversation.”
“He was interested in know­ing about the budget process and how far we have gone and the meeting today with the private sector and the economic recov­ery growth plan and I informed him about the protest march and feedback about what people are saying about the economy. He is in good shape.”
On when Buhari is expect­ed back home to resume his du­ties, the Acting President said that “just like he said in his letter to the National Assembly, he needs to go for a cycle of tests and once he sees the test results and gets medical advice, we expect him back very soon.”
Asked why it had been diffi­cult to disclose to Nigerians the exact health challenge of the Pres­ident, Osinbajo replied: “I think that the health status of Mr. Presi­dent is an issue that only Mr. Pres­ident would discuss at the appro­priate time.”
“Again, he is running tests and all of that. Before you will be able to determine your health sta­tus, you must be able to say this is my health status. I’ll do the tests my doctors have advised me to do and will wait for the outcome of the tests and know my status,” he said.
Osinbajo also reiterated his declaration that he was not un­der any pressure by state gover­nors or any other Nigerians as a result of the anxiety and appre­hension caused by Buhari’s health issues and long absence.
According to him, “I am not under any pressure to resign. I was voted for by the people of this nation, I and Mr. President and so the people of this nation have not asked us to resign.
“I am absolutely not under any pressure whatsoever. The truth is that there has been no pressure from any source asking me to resign,” he insisted.
Also yesterday, there were re­ports and photographs of some Nigerians in the United King­dom storming the Nigerian High Commission to demand to see President Buhari.
The protesters, who were in front of the country’s High Commission in UK, asked that the President addressed them in person.
Buhari, who was expected to resume duties yesterday, fol­lowing the expiration of his 10-day vacation announced the ex­tension of the trip indefinitely on Sunday.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Femi Adesina, the President said that he has sent a letter to the National Assembly informing them of the new de­velopment.

      Comment…sani you are not intelligent enough to call an acting president a lier, someone that will take the control of the country even if the president is not alive, he can’t deny himself his own right. But this great pastor told us the truth about his oga and still people don’t understand. This is not like Yar Aduwa when the vice President don’t know where, and how the president is doing.

        Oga u need to shut d fuck up. The vice president just lied. Perhaps he doesn’t know the gravity of such lies. You cannot say someone is hale and hearty and he is not on his sit working. This deception is grievious. It is so unfortunate that Osinbanjo is also involved in this manipulation against the citizens of this country. It is so pathetic! What a nation!

    If President Buhari was to be my father, I’ll ask him to resign and take care of his health, even children get sick and when it is critical, they are sent to Intensive Care Unit-ICU for proper medical attention unless he want history to repeat itself the second time…………..IBB, OBJ, Danjuma and the 12 cabal should do something fast to restore the glory of this nation and its economy and stop giving us sick aged presidential candidate from the North, enough is enough.

    Comment…Buhari should speak to Nigerians to clear all these rumour and speculation.Yes the vp said that he spoke with him good,even though he is lying down on sick bed,it can also be cover,they should do so,senator Abu Ibrahim said that the president is not sick but he is only resting from Nigeria problems.
