President Muhammadu Buhari’s emergency medical vacation to the United Kingdom, UK, on penultimate Sunday, has been turned into a suspense-packed story.
The suspense got to a feverish pitch on Monday night, as there was not yet an official report, or communication on how far Buhari is recuperating, since he left the shores of Nigeria, through a hurriedly arranged night flight to London, a source authoritatively told Post-Nigeria.
This heightened calls by Nigerians on the Presidency, to declare the health status of Buhari, in order to dowse the tension created by his absence, has been dismissed by the All Progressives Congress, APC, by the wave of the hand.
Recall, that penultimate Sunday, Buhari had jetted out of the country behind cameras, to attend to his health, that has made him to repeatedly fail to attend Jumat prayers in the Aso Rock Mosque, and several Federal Executive Council, FEC, meetings.
Sources exclusively revealed to Post-Nigeria, that Buhari’s Presidential Spokesmen, Femi Adesina, Garba Shehu, and the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, have not been able to get in contact with Mr. President through the phone, since he left Nigera to the UK.
“There has not been any official communication between Buhari and those he left behind in Aso Rock, since he traveled out of the country for follow-up medical consultation.
“Buhari’s phone no longer rings, everything is dead cold, even Osinbajo has not been able to get through to him.’’
He added: “Have you heard any Governor or Special Adviser saying that Buhari called him, since he left the shores of Nigeria? Have you heard Osinbajo saying that he contacted Mr. President, unlike before?’’
Post-Nigeria recalled, that on Buhari’s January visit to London, many Governors and Politicians had claimed that Mr. President called them on the phone.
