President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina says the president has gone on a private trip and has the right to whatever he deems fit on the trip.
And that Nigerians who want to interpret it into something else, also have the right to think that Buhari’s private trip to the United Kingdom is for his health reasons.
Adesina said this while appearing as a guest on a Channels Television programme, Politics Today on Thursday.
His words; “Those who want to interpret everything, those who want to believe all things should just believe that it is a private trip. When a man goes on a private trip, he has the right to use his time the way he deems because he has the right to private time.
So those who want to believe it’s a medical trip, they have the right to believe, if it pleases them and makes them happier.”
According to the presidential spokesman, against popular beliefs that the president would jet off the country as soon as elections were over – the president has remained even after two months since elections held.
“President Buhari has since the last weekend in December when he launched the presidential campaign, all through till February he was on campaign stuff around the country.
“Elections came and a lot of people expected that immediately after the elections, he will travel out to rest or attend to his health, but we see two months after the elections, the President was working vigorously.”
