Amid claims by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, that President Muhammadu Buhari is still ‘critically’ ill and will continue his ‘secret’ treatment in Aso Rock Presidential Villa, the president has declared himself fit.
The president made this known on Sunday evening, shortly after he returned to Abuja, the nation’s capital, following the end of his 10-day vacation in London, the United Kingdom.
President Buhari, who was in London to rest and treat a persistent ear infection, arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at about 5.35pm.
On touch down, the president inspected a guard of honour mounted and later spoke briefly to State House correspondents.
When asked about his state of health, Mr. Buhari said: “You have seen me. You saw me when I was going. You can do the assessment yourself”.
“I am okay. You can see me inspecting the guard of honour. You can see I am taller than you. Do you want to wrestle with me, you can do so”, President Buhari added.
