Buhari is not sick but exhausted by Nigeria's problems, says Senator

Buhari is not sick but exhausted by Nigeria's problems, says Senator

It appears every Dick and Harry has something to say concerning President Muhammadu Buhari and his current travails. Could Buhari be speaking only to those who claim close affinity to him at the expense of the entire nation? Latest on the list of those claiming to have spoken to the President is Chairman, Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Abu Ibrahim.

The Senator representing the All Progressives Congress, APC, Katsina South said Tuesday that President Buhari was not sick, but only exhausted as a human being. Ibrahim who is one of the closest Senators to Buhari said that those spreading the rumour that he is sick missed the point, just as he stressed that the weight of the country’s mounting problems exhausted him.

He reeled out issues that might have taken a toll on the President which include destruction of oil pipelines that has reduced production to almost half, fall in oil price that has affected the economy and led to recession, and the falling exchange rate that has affected the purchasing power of most Nigerians, adding that some of those talking about the falling exchange rate fail to also talk about what led to weak Naira against the Dollar.

Ibrahim who spoke to journalists, noted that he has been in constant touch with President Buhari, adding that he was actually with him the day he left the country. He said that every Nigerian is aware of the zeal and passion President Buhari came into office with, adding, “President Buhari will soon come back.”

According to him, “ there was no need for Nigerians to be unduly apprehensive because Mr. President is not sick but exhausted by the weight of the problems the country is going through.”

He however urged Nigerians to continue to pray for the President to come home and continue his work to put the country in a better footing.
