As President Muhammadu Buhari cancels his much talked about trip to Ogoniland, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party has once again alleged that the president is critically ill and may travel abroad for treatment within the week.

The presidency as at the time of filing this report had not made any statement as to why President Buhari cancelled his trip to launch the cleanup of Ogoni land, polluted by years of oil exploration and production.
President Buhari had also last Monday postponed a two-day working visit to Lagos where he was earlier billed to commission several projects of Governor Akinwumi Ambode’s administration.
However, according to the Personal Assistant to President Buhari on New Media, the vice president, Prof Osinbajo who went in Buhari’s stead has flagged off the launch of the cleanup.
Today, June 2nd, the clean-up of Ogoniland has formally been flagged off by President Buhari, represented by VP Prof. Osinbajo #NDCleanUp
