Nobody Is Immune To Sickness – Buhari

muhammadu-buhariAs President Muhammadu Buhari departed Nigeria Monday via the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja for London, he declared that nobody, not even the president, is immune to sickness.
The president today began a 10-day vacation that his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said was to enable him (Buhari) to rest and see Ear, Nose and Throat (E.N.T) specialists in London for a “persistent ear infection”.
During a brief interaction with journalists before leaving the Presidential Wing of the airport, Buhari was asked to react to the uproar that greeted disclosure that he was sick and in need of medical attention.
Responding, the president fired back at the reporters rhetorically: “Is there anybody that doesn’t fall sick?”
When asked what his message to Nigerians would be at this time, he simply said, “I have already told Nigerians that I am going for 10 days to get my ear checked”.
In further response to questions if he had communicated his decision to go on vacation to the National Assembly as stipulated by law, President Buhari said, “The National Assembly knows; they have been formally informed”.
With the formal notice to the National Assembly, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo automatically becomes Acting President for the duration of Buhari’s vacation.
