After denying that President Muhammadu Buhari is sick, the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Sunday announced that President Muhammadu Buhari will take a 10 days off and travel to London to rest, as well as see an Ear, Nose and Throat, E.N.T specialist for a persistent ear infection,

Adesina who took to his Facebook page to make the announcement said: “President Muhammadu Buhari will take 10 days off and travel to London on Monday, June 6, 2016, to rest.

During the holiday, he will see an E.N.T. specialist for a persistent ear infection.

“The President was examined by his Personal Physician and an E.N.T Specialist in Abuja and was treated. Both Nigerian doctors recommended further evaluation purely as a precaution.”

It would be recalled that Adesina had on Saturday denied an online report claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari was ill and treating an ear infection.

Speaking on telephone with a correspondent of The Nation Newspaper, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, dismissed the report as false.

The President, Adesina said, was fine and discharging his duties as President of Nigeria.

“It is not true. It is the imagination of the writer. The President is fine and has been performing his duties.”

The report claimed that the President was ill with  infection in his left ear, known as Meniere Disease, and that the President was being treated at the Presidential Villa by his personal physician and other experts from the State House Clinic.

  5. Pls hold your horses,an infection is no big deal a disorder unrest uneasiness we do get inflected once in a while is not life threatening neither is it terminal which is deadly,so pls don’t make it out to be what it is not bad belle!!!

    • You are correct Emeka Emma. But, are you not worried that our President is traveling out for a mere infection that is not life threatening?

    • @ Chima. Our life is in the Hands of God who is The Supreme Power over life and death. We should not say one disease is terminal and another is not. The doctors are just trying. It is only GOD that heals. The Aso Rock Physicians say the President has Meniere disease which is more or less the same as vertigo I’m not a medical doctor but I can say he needs to be checked for blockage of one or two sinuses. It is a simple thing that can be done @ the ASO Rock or UCH Ibadan, provided it is unblocked speedily, otherwise it may become terminal. The President is a VIP who will not like to patronise local herbalists. He has his options. One impression I want to correct is: there is no disease, however small, that is not life-threatening, even ordinary malaria fever. Everyone of us is configured with our vulnerability from the Devic Kingdom, believe it or not. God Himself created diseases and not Satan as pastors would like us to believe. Without disease, there will be no death and man will be immortal, contrary to what GOD decreed when Man sinned. I wish the President a speedy recovery.

    • No big deal in death or sickness. Shakespare said: it (death) will come when it will come. So lets pray 4 d sick & commiserate with d berieved. Our turn may be by d corner.
