Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, says President Buhari has been transparent about his health status since his return from UK in March. Speaking to state house correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting which President Buhari failed to attend, Lai Mohammed said:
“The President told the nation he has never been this sick and he is going to take it easy. He said it from day one when he came back from the UK. So whatever is happening today is not any strange development, it is exactly what he said – that he has been advised to take it easy by his doctors and that he will soon also go back for further treatment. I don’t think it’s anything different from what he has said. He has been quite transparent and upfront in matters concerning his health” he said.
