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.
