Don’t lose sleep over President Buhari’s health, FG tells Nigerians

by on June 1, 2017

The Federal Govern­ment has again as­sured Nigerians that there was no cause for alarm over President Muhamma­du Buhari’s health, insisting that he is in very competent hands in London where he is undergoing treatment.

The Minister of Infor­mation and Culture, Lai Mohammed, gave the as­surance on Wednesday in reaction to questions raised by journalists over latest re­ports that the President has fully recovered from an un­disclosed ailment.

“Once again, I want to make myself very clear on the issue of Mr. President; he is in very competent hands and there is no cause for alarm”, the minister said.

Buhari left Nigeria for the United Kingdom on May 7 for a follow-up con­sultation with his doctors.

His wife Aisha joined him in London on Tuesday, but there is no information on exactly when he will re­turn to Nigeria.

Asked when the 2017 Budget will be signed, Mo­hammed said ministers were still working with the Minister of Budget and Na­tional Planning to reconcile the figures.

    Honestly i wish Mr president well and quick recovery . Nigerians wish him well too .
    However i want to also use this medium to say that FEC in their next meet should urgently address the issue of the terrorists ravaging this country and pretending to be herdsmen . Every part of the country is affected but it seems to be more in the middle belt and southern part .
    My candid opinion is that establishment of state policing or community policing backed up by law and a well defined modus of operation will stop this embarrassment . It beats my imaginations why this is happening in these magnitudes and it looks like the terrorist herdsmen are winning .
    The truth be told , enact a law prohibiting this roaming open grazing ,let cow breeders establish ranches and you see that this terrorism will stop . This is because the terrorists won’t see avenue to latch on to operate .
    I do ask is it that we don’t know what to do or we don’t want to do it or we feel it is not affecting us now or what ?
    Why are these herdsmen not attacking our neighbouring countries the way they are attacking us ? Who are these terror herdsmen ? If they are foreigners , how do they enter ? If they are causing us problems , do we need any permission to send them back from wherever they are coming from ?
