Insisting that President Muhammadu Buhari “is absolutely in no danger” despite undergoing medical tests in London, the Minister of
Information, Lai Mohammed, has urged Nigerians not to compare the present scenario with that of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua who died while on a similar health-related vacation abroad in 2010.
Responding to questions from State House correspondents after yesterday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC), Mohammed said there was therefore no need giving daily updates on Buhari’s health as he had then demanded of government when he was an opposition party spokesman in 2010.
He further argued that unlike Yar’Adua, the President transmitted power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo before proceeding to London, adding that Buhari has in fact, by obeying the Constitution, turned out to be a victim of his own transparency.
According to Mohammed, “I think I can say without any equivocation that he (Buhari) is well, he is hale and he is hearty, no question about that.
