The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on Monday insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari is neither critically ill nor in the hospital.
Speaking during a Town Hall meeting in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, Mohammed maintained that Bubari was not experiencing life threatening situation as being speculated by some section of Nigerians.
The Minister disclosed that he spoke with the President on Saturday and that there was no cause for alarm.
He said, “I can say here very boldly and confidently that there is absolutely no cause for alarm.
“`Mr president called me at 2.43 p.m. on Saturday and we spoke.
“If Mr president is in the hospital or is critically ill, as minister of information, I will give daily bulletin on his health.
“Mr president is neither critically ill nor in the hospital and there is nothing life threatening about the checks he is going through.’’
Buhari who is currently on medical vacation in London, has been rumour dead.
This was further fuelled by the fact that the President who was expected back in the country, following the completion of his vacation, sent a letter to the National Assembly same day , extending his 10-day vacation in the UK to enable him complete and receive medical results.
Last week Tuesday, the President through his media aide, Femi Adesina revealed that series of medical check-ups he carried out in the cause of his vacation had necessitated his prolonged stay in London.
