Presidency posts new Buhari photo

President Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari

The Presidency has posted a photo purporting to show President Muhammadu Buhari in London, amid speculations about his health.

The president travelled to the United Kingdom last week on a 10-day holiday.

But there have been reports about his health, with some claiming he was either dead or under intensive care.

The presidency has denied the reports, saying the president is neither ill nor admitted in any hospital in London as being speculated.

Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said on Thursday Mr. Buhari would not be compelled to speak amid the “rumour”.

“The president is in London on vacation. He is not in any hospital and he is not ill.

“If anybody has fed something else into the rumour mill that is just what it is – rumour,” he said.

“The fact that he is a president, he still has his rights. Compelling him to come out and talk will be infringing on his rights. The president will talk if he wishes to, and if he doesn’t wish to, nobody will compel him to talk.”

The new photo, posted on Twitter, and retweeted by another aide to the president, Garba Shehu, Friday night, shows the president in a relaxed mood with some of his visitors, including Gov. Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun.

    DEAR EDITOR,

    Muhamadu is quite an irresponsible person. A sensible person whose absence stirs anxiety in his family
    will do what Muhamadu Buhari lacks the gumption to do; i.e, simply put a call through to dispel anxiety.
    It takes a crude mind, hidebound in primitivity to choose silence as Buhari does and stoke concerns.
    Similar illiterates in a similar position will show far better judgment than Muhamadu Buhari exhibits.
    Muhamadu Buhari is a species of a morally dissolute homonoid with no sense of right and wrong.

    • Concerned Nigeriana

      @Peace_3:disqus

      Muhamadu Buhari is the worst president Nigeria has ever had; the least educated, the most dishonest,
      the most crooked, the worst mentally lazy, the most bereft, the most denuded of thought-process, and,
      the most inarticulate stammering Islamist bigot ever to enter the presidential villa flying Fulani tribe flag.

      @realist:disqus

      I am a zoologist major. Hominoids are supposed to be extinct. You should
      count yourselves lucky in Nigeria that you have at least one surviving species
      left in your country. The only sad part of your discovery in Nigeria is that
      you chose a hominoid to govern presumed homo sapiens.

      That’s a zoological taboo.

      But it may just be that there are no
      universities left teaching anything in Nigeria as at today. But the fault is
      not in stars in Nigeria, to be fair. Did fully evolved Caucasians in Western
      Europe and North America not ask your own hominoid to go bring his shopping
      list in June 2015? So you can see you are not alone in your utter folly in Nigeria.

  • realist

    Why sending pictures, if truly nothing is fitching. To me it is petty and childish. They say Buhari is hail and hearty, can’t they stand by that if they are not lying. They say asking him to speak from London would amount to infringing on his human rights, but they can send pictures. what is the evidence that the picture is not old, because it doesn’t carry date? Government has something to hide jare.

  • Concerned 4 u

    This is a crazy dictatorship based comment, who would tell his employers he will not respond to their inquiries on the state of his health and not risk being fired? this madness has to end. Nigerians you are his employer if he dares refuse a standing order from the citizens who voted him to allay worries by showing himself fit for duty then in the words of the famous philosopher “your silence is admitting guilt” my suggestion…Fire him!

    • Uduak Etinan

      @concerned_4_u:disqus

      It is a long time since I heard the phrase SAI BABA. I just want free legal advice to know if that phrase has been banned in Nigeria. All my neighbours who were waving broom for Buhari’s election in 2015 were always saying
      SAI BUBA. That was in the year 2015. Now they don’t say it again. I want the Legal Adviser of Premium Times
      to give me free advice so that I will not commit criminal offence by saying SAI BABA. I have no money to pay.

      Secondly, I have been hearing another phrase of recent. The youths in my area are now saying SAI RAGO.
      Since I was not born I have not heard that phrase before. I want to know if SAI RAGO is the updated version
      of SAI BABA which has now fallen into dis-use as total darkness envelopes Nigeria from the zero magawatts
      Minister for Power Raji Fashola who did the most to bring President Buhari to eternal disgrace in history.

    honestly speaking, those who are posting this buharis pictures are the real enemies of buhari and his government. I as a patriotic citizen of this great country, am really suffering great pains thinking about my beautiful country and the fate that have befallen her since independence as far as leadership is concerned. this country is a great nation in every material index, our problems is not natural but human made problems.
    I want Co compatriots whose minds are free to join me in ruminations about the future of my nation, if we continue threading this self destructive paths, what hope do we have as a nation.
    how many Nigerians are sincerely happy watching the unfolding unfortunate drama playing out in our nation.
    fellow citizens, are we cursed as a people or are we the cause of our predicaments, is there any citizen satisfied with the pace, growth and development of Nigerian nation considering the great resources in both human and material that Providence have graciously afforded us.
    why is it that out of over 100 million adults, out of more than 20 million well educated, well informed, well resourced citizens of vibrant and energy dripping age, only a man like buhari, an 80 years old sick, weak, tried, retired, sleep walking, frail, uninformed, less educated, clannish, reclusive, demented, near deaf old man that is qualified to lead Nigeria at this point in time.
    I am sour sorrowful and very sorry for my nation.
    if we insist on traveling on this path of self destruction, who then can save our nation.
    how could a nation blessed with most competent, resourceful, well informed, properly educated, well exposed, well experienced, modern trend compliant, energetic, broad-based, liberal young people like Peter obi, oby ezekwesili, Charles soludo, magnus Kpakpol, shehu Umar, atiku abubakar, okonjo iweala, ADB Adeshina, Pat utomi, emir Sanusi, nuhu ribadu, dangote, elumelu, Jim ovia, even Tinubu, Fayemi, Amaechi, oshiomole, Coscharis, Godswill Akpabio, Donald Duke etc etc etc. why must this nation continue with a very sick, dying and near the grave president when there are better better alternatives.
    any wonder that Nigeria nation is today very sick, weak, tired and is only surviving via the life support of lies, propaganda, brainwashing, coercion, intimidation and blackmail.
    let’s stand now and say never again will we allow recycling of dead woods and tired, demented, blind old dwarfs as our leaders. 2019 is here with us, may God deliver our nation through us Nigerians. if buhari is no longer capable of sleepwalking around, he should better resign and allow Nigeria to recover from the deep pit where his myopia, incompetence, vindictiveness, hate, tribal and ethnic bigotry have cast our nation.
    enough of ruling Nigeria from the stretcher and grave yards.

  • emmanuel

    I understand that this is an old photograph. Osinbajo, tell us something. Have you spoken with Bokohari?
    By February 6, 2017 his leave will be over. Let no one tell us that he has departed London for lesser Hajj (Otile the prophet).
    Meanwhile, see how Amusun siddon for the photograph. A bush man will always leave tracies of humble background anyday, even when they have stolen all the monies and become wealthy.
    If Buhari likes, he should not die, he is not worth any thing to us than a FH.

    • Suleiman

      Have you forgotten that the cabal and bokoharimites forbade Jonathan from seeing Yar’aduwa’s corpse? Even Turai Yar’aduwa forbade the mother from seeing her so’s corpse! Why would they allow Osinbajo to speak to him when he is president in waiting? He might be tempted to release the dreaded news, so it’s better for him to stay clear and wait for his swearing in. After all, a patient dog eats the fattest born.

We are not expecting any extended winter vacation because brother Adeshina has assured us that Imam is not sick nor admitted in any hospital in Ingila. Insh Allah Imam will resume duty to clear the air. Utangirma Allah.

        If this is what Fake Pastor Osinbajo thinks is his game plan then Buhari is advised to be careful of his insincere and dangerous vice president, the Fake Pastor Yemi Osinbajo. What a repulsive attitude.

      @disqus_1RGk8JqIb7:disqus: I think I know this photo.
      This photo was taken about two years ago. Why is Buhari men using it now
      to say Buhari is not sick and is not dead, why? Well, for me, I will believe only
      what my sense tells me, not what Buhari men are saying. I am very God-fearing.
      At a time like this I can only say that may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

    @ Enitan awosanya
    I sympathize with you my brother and all those who found themselves in your misguided shoes.
    the truth is that the sponsored, highly mischievous, evil conspiracy theories against Jonathan and his government is to say the least utterly over exaggerated for sinister reasons and primordial objectives.
    those who crafted that conspiracies know themselves and very clearly understood their evil, satanic and nefarious motives, that’s why they used different theories for different people and sections.
    my brother, the truth is that what you wrote and your opinions about Jonathan is pathetic and false, it is a well rehearsed and well crafted cunning crafty blackmail aimed at trapping and taking the control of souls who are uninformed and bigoted.
    Ask your conscience, if after nearly 2 years of high drama, all that this administration have to show for the blackmail against Jonathan government is 18b according to the Attorney general and 78b according to budget office which is less than a hundred billion, even though they are already contradictory to themselves, it means that those who sold out the dummy to Nigerians are the Devils that Nigerians must deal with, if we must move forward as a nation.
    can any body in his right senses compare the damage done to Nigerian nation by buhari within 18 months to recovery of even 1 trillion naira.
    the truth is that yoruba voted against Jonathan because tinubu told them that ibos are in control of Jonathan government to the exclusion of yoruba while the north voted against Jonathan because buhari and emirs told them that Jonathan is an infidel that must not continue to rule because he is against arewa.
    learn to sincerely apologize when you discover the truth and your error of judgment.
    to err is human, but covering your error with hypocrisy is a more grievous error.

    • AryLoyds

      TRUE, SO TRUE , GOD BLESS U:)

  • Otile

    Wallahi, the picture above is the real picture of Imam Buhari. He doesn’t live like a dead man to me. What every Nigerian should be doing right now is to fast and pray hard so that Imam will come home soon and replace the present recession with prosperity. Let people stop arguing about his health. VP Osinbajo is an anointed pastor, he cannot lie to us. He too has assured us of Imam’s good health. God is great.

    • K.K.K

      It does not matter, my brother.
      No one is proving that Buhari is dead but people are saying he is incapacitated;
      either as a result of stroke, Alzheimer, or something disabling, therefore, the way
      to assure the public that Buhari is not impaired and can function optimally as president
      is not a photo but an audio interview with video to match word for word – no voice over!
      Let’s even say his media aides are not spinning his suspected incapacity, why has Buhari
      proved reckless to leave Nigeria adrift without appointing a Chief Justice of Supreme Court?

      • wode

        Even if some of you were to see him in real life, not picture, video or live transmission, you would still not believe. You would claim it’s a cloned copy of him. So, why striving to satisfy the mischievously insatiable pessimists?

        • Otile

          You are very funny indeed. Nobody is pessimistic concerning Imam’s health. The VP and everybody close to Imam have assured us that Imam is on vacation and will be back soon after his 10 day vacation. People should neither get defensive nor offensive about this. You don’t need a mirror to look at what you are wearing on your hand. Rather than arguing about this every Nigerian should fast and pray hard that at the end of Imam’s vacation he will immediately replace recession with prosperity. All say amen.

The fact is Mr Muhammadu Buhari, might live longer surpassing his chronic enemies like Ayodele Fayose, and others who carried this fake rumour of his death.Only Jehovah God Almighty, has full unquestionable control over president Muhammadu Buhari, and all human beings lives.

    • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

      Liar Mohammed could now see where they have taken Nigerians.
      Bubu have ran Nigeria aground. Nigeria have fallen into the lowest pit, it is utterly reprehensible for one to wish his enemies dead, it is much more reprehensible and utterly ridiculous for a vast majority of a nation to prefer that a president they voted less than two years ago dies. The pertinent question we all should be asking our souls and conscience is how did Nigerians fall into this bottomless evil pit, how did the once most happiest people in Africa descend into such a horrible low where they have taken a seat in the conference room of Lucifer, what really have happened to a deep religious people to become witches and wizards and evil agents of darkness.
      Mr President, you will surely live and not die to fulfill the purpose of your Lord upon the earth, no evil shall befall you except the ones ordered by your Lord. Mr President please reflect on the remote causes of this sudden change in the dispositions and attitude of your country men and women towards you and repent, retrace your steps and make amends where necessary.
      If this nation continue like this, you would have succeeded in killing a nation that your Lord have graciously put in your trust to govern. Your open indulgence into
      Injustice, cheating, marginalization, clannishness,hate bigotry and blackmailing your citizens are at the root cause of this evil, your Lord have made you a father and a leader to all Nigerians, please be that wish God have made you to be. May God help you to build and not continue to destroy your nation and her people because of hate, malice, tribal, ethnic, religious and clannish bigotry. Be just, fair and equitable to every geopolitical zone of Nigeria. Do not promote one zone over and above others, do not marginalize and ridicule nor cheat or shortchange any part of Nigeria because God has made you the president of all Nigerians. May God help you to repent and change for the good of all Nigerians.

      nothing happens for nothing, if a child becomes very uncomfortable with the Father to the point of wishing him death, I suggest that the Father must look up himself in the mirror and retrace his steps where necessary.
      injustice, cheating, bias, marginalization, discrimination, open show of contempt for a people, race, zone or ethnicity,measuring with unequal scales etc is at the root cause of buharis failure as Nigeria president.
      buhari must throw away vindictiveness, hate, tribalism, religious bigotry, bias against some sections of Nigeria, he must use his office in a transparent, fair, just and equitable manner for him to earn the respect, love and admiration of all Nigerians which is very needful, necessary and very important for the good, prosperity and development of Nigerian nation. if buhari continue to allow the treacherous judas race to continue to misguid him into marginalizing, shortchanging and hate some part and people of Nigeria because they did not vote for him in the last election, he will surely go down as the worst president Nigeria ever had.

    Death is an appointment every human being must keep. No one here(on earth) will live forever. Whether you pray for it or against it, avoid it, insinuate it, allerge it or even prove it, death is the inevitable end of all men. I repeat ALL men.
    I don’t see any wisdom in anticipating or jubilating about his death. He is somebody’s child,Husband, father, grandfather and brother. His death will be someone’s great loss and of course Nigeria’s too.

    I pray God keeps him and gives him wisdom to help steer Nigeria away from falling over the “cliff”.

    Amen!

      I was reading your comments and every word, sentence and paragraph was making sense. I was filled with violent hope that at least there are still people like you who understand the perilous state of affairs in Nigeria and the embarrassment in the kind of misfits we choose/select to hold public office… Yes I was gbaduing your piece until I came across the name ‘Atiku Abubakar’. Since that time I stopped reading your comment and I have gone to toilet about 5 times in the last 20 minutes to vomit and/or empty my bowels. Atiku????? …as a leader in the category of people like Peter Obi et al? Are you drunk or tipsy?

      Even if we chose to 4get that Atiku moved from a civil servant as head of Customs to a billionaire overnight, the man died in Atiku the day he built a University with illgotten wealth and named it “American” University of Nigeria – Yola.
      QUESTION
      Would any leader worth called by that appellation ever build a University in his homeland and call it by a foreign name? Something like Mandela building a University and calling it American University of South Africa – Western Cape!… Or Obama building a University and calling it Ghanaian University of America – Honolulu Hawaii. Pls clear your eyes from whatever is working ur brain and delete Atiku from that list.

    • Powerlessconscious

      I can see that you in deep sorrow. And I believe it might continue for a while so you have to prepare for more. You called your self patriotic, and you hauled lot of abuse on the president nature just to satisfy your likes and anti-president. If you well education as you have written a long post, you brain will tell you that NOT ONLY THE PRESIDENT DO THE WORK OF A COUNTRY. He has vp, he has ministers, and different government representative. So the workload is shared by a very smart. But your pdp education knowledge can never tell you this. This is why you guys thinks PRESIDENTS WORK LIKE ANT so therex old age will not make them work as expected. That is PDP education. In 1983, the record was idi-agbon at the front at the command of the president. Which means president have ability to share their work load while they only authorise the right decisions.
      Also, if you are well informed. You should be able to discern if there is actually light at the end of the tunnel. Your brain will also remind you that NIGERIA was already DEAD before PDP left in 2015. Buhari and osinbanjo are only RESURRECTING the Newly DEAD COUNTRY. But your brain will not tell you this. What your brain told you is that Buhari Brought economic hardship on you. Whereas naturally there was now quick fix than for people to first suffer the MASSIVE LOOTING by PDP. Also, people whowere CHEERING AVENGERS are getting the reward of their UNPATRIOTIC. though the innocents are partaking. We WARNED you, “DO NOT SUPPORT AVENGERS TO BLOW PIPELINE”. that this will bring more HARDSHIP with the low oil price. But you guys anti-president said that “AVENGERS SHOULD CONTINUE BLOWING PIPELINE” because you HATE president but have forgot that is Nigerians that will suffer. So your BRAIN should tell you all this.
      Had it been there is a way to separate you UNPATRIOTIC out of nigetia, the country would not have gone through long redemption. But your act of hatred for the president prolonged the fixing of the country. Normally as far as you guys continue to support evils of AVENGERS, THE TREASURY LOOTERS, BOKOHARAM etc, you are not suppose to see anything GOODIES. But for the sake of innocent and patriotic Nigerians, the country will surely be great again. No matter how you guys propagate your lies and hatred on the president, you will allbbe DISGRACED. The patriotic Nigerians only want a better future and they don’t care about the current pain as far as the future is go to be good because the future is always INPORTANT than the present. DANGOTE REFINERY will be the breakthrough, follow by MANBILLA POWER PLAN. But Dangote refinery is bomb that will scatter the wishes of the evils on the nation. After this, Nigeria will NEVER WORRY AGAIN. God bless Buhari/osinbanjo.

      • ayoka ade

        you did a good job trying to justify your pay as a hired agent of falsehood, lying and propaganda. if the head of a body is dead, what can the hand, leg, mouth, ear,heart etc do?
        according to your epistle of blackmail, lies and falsehood, dangote refinery is the Messiah that the sleepwalking old man and his integrity challenged clueless government is waiting for, now I ask you, who motivated, encouraged and indeed facilitated the building of dangote refinery?,
        the answer is still the same Jonathan and pdp.
        if dangote begins work according to schedule, if buharis calamitous ineptitude have not affected the time line for that great investment, the glory shall still go to the account of pdp and Jonathan whose leadership created, financed, motivated and encouraged dangote and his likes to invest in Nigeria.
        that’s exactly why we patriotic citizens are weeping for Nigeria about the kind of a buhari presidency that will be quick to claim the glory of other leaders Labour and good thinking leadership but failed to continue with the good works of his predecessors but rather engaging in divisive, ethnic, tribal, religious, partisan, clannish bigotry to undermine the growth and development of Nigeria nation.
        let buhari change his calamitous ways, see the whole nation as his constituency, rule Nigeria with love, justice, fairness, equity, shun discrimination, bias, bigotry, hatred of citizens and parts of Nigeria simply because they didn’t vote for him in 2015 elections, understand that once an aspirant got elected and sworn in, both those that voted for him and those who voted for other candidates and those who didn’t vote at all, becomes his citizens whom he must lead with love, compassion, justice, fairness and equity for the peace, unity, progress and prosperity of Nigeria.
        yaradua was a katsina fulani man like buhari, yet he handled the diversity of Nigeria creditably not playing games with the faultlines, he performed creditably not minding the fall in global oil prices and he managed the Niger delta agitation very maturedly with love and empathy.
        buhari came and alloed the treacherous judas iscariot vindictive race to deceive and beguile him to be biased and discriminatory against parts of his nation whom God have given him to oversee and look at where our nation have fallen. the same satanic malicious race are wishing buhari dead so that they will become president through the back door. may God Almighty put them to a resounding shame, heal our president and give him the grace to effectively rule Nigeria with justice, equity, fairness, without discrimination or bias so that our nation can truly move forward, prosper and blossom. may God help and bless our president and disappoint the evil intentions and cunning craftiness of judas iscariot race of Nigeria. amen.

          Don’t worry. Just continue to rant. You guys are just empty barrel that have created sorrow for themselves. No matter your conspiracy theory against our president who you abused and insult, everything is empty. Like I said, you and other public looters of your like should prepare for long SORROW. Because this is the just beginning. A worse than sorrow is coming upon the GANGSTERS of your kinds who have vowed to be the obstacle to REDEEMPTION of Nigeria. In your life time or after (any one that come first), Nigeria will be great again and millions of your evil likes CAN NOT STOP. Do you where I pity for you again. You referenced to Bible events. I believe God will PUNISH you accordingly just like Satan was punished when he referenced to bible to test Jesus. Mind you, we the patriotic Nigerians will continue to cooperate with our president to defeat the DARKNESS and her AGENTS until Nigeria fully get out of the dead trap of PDP and her agents. God bless Buhari/osinbanjo. God bless Nigeria.

    Premiumtimes, what are you waiting for? This photo has been busted so do the needful and bury your head in shame

    The President’s media people are just so daft! They should just say the truth, which is that they don’t have access to the President and do not have information about the President.

  • Isaac Azor

    What ever it is, may God be with the president and may He continue to give the president the courage, strength and wisdom to steer the Nigeria to greatness.

    When rumor came up, that the nation’s president is dead, since African presidents only get treatments overseas, all the presidency needed to do, is give Nigerians the benefit of doubt not to believe the news, and allow buhari to address the nation, even from the bath room.
    All these photo follow up disclaimers about trying to douse the story only exacerbate the rumor. Once the president surrounded himself with half baked staffs, they contribute more to this already bad story.

    • CeeCee1818

      Agreed. Why are they embarrassed by the fact that they’re old and with age comes ailments.

      • paul irumundomon

        No body is bigger than death, haven said that, what is wrong if all these half baked staff, give a press briefing with buhari on TV, to dismiss the rumor. Showing us his pictures of his house in England or hotel, who cares what kind of pictures they have to show us that our president is alive and well. It shows further, how unqualified the entire cabinent is, ordinary bad news management, they have no clue what to do.
        To show Nigerians, a picture of a man, supposedly dead, confirm the obvious. They are not smart, from when the news broke and until when they have to use picture, to tell Nigerians that buhari is not dead, no one wish him death. One thing though, death is a necessary thing, that must come when it must come, money, fame or presidency can not change it.

    When I see the protruding stomack of the killer man, and then the fleshless skeleton that is almost puncturing his upper arm, then I know that my prayers for the vengeance of my 2 cousins killed and buried by the Army as they protested is working. Nigerian Army has refused to return even the corpses. But God of Elijah is working.

  • CeeCee1818

    The president needs to make a short speech just to reassure the country that he’s okay, a still photo doesn’t cut it. Is Aisha with him?

  • paul irumundomon

    The fact that he is a president, he still has his rights. Compelling him to come out and talk will be infringing on his rights.”unquote”
    WHAT A NATION, WHY THEN PUBLISH HIS RESIDENCE IN ENGLAND, SO IT IS RIGHT FOR YOU TO INFRINGE HIS PHOTO RIGHT, NONSENSE.

  • Ntaeshe

    Why this desperate effort to prove that Mr President is alive? Ironically, it mrerely tends to lend more credence to the ‘rumours’. Ignore the rumours if Mr President is alive and let the mongers be put to shame when Mr president resumes work. Posting pictures that are easily amenable to digital manipulations is adopting a puerile approach to a serious issue.

    Truth cannot be hid, b4 Friday we will all know the truth of the matter. Have a blessed Sunday all.

    Why did the said Amosun travel all the way to London to go visit someone who just left this country less than one week ago and is expected to return in less than one5 days. Very curious. The same way the IGP and his senior awusa/foolani police officers rushed to London to see a “hale and hearty” president who left Nigeria a few days earlier. His 10 days vacation ends on Wednesday. We expect him back, hale and hearty. Panic.

  • Tijani

    Whether the picture is authentically recent or factually old is immaterial. The truth is that since Buhari’s vacamedical is on the public purse, the presidency does bear an obligation to provide the public with honest and mutually respectful updates, not this arrogant and disrespectful twaddle from Buhari’s aides. Buhar and Osinbajo were voted in or their campaign promises to curb corruption, restore security and create jobs. 2 years later they have failed. They should be removed not for incapacitation due to 30 days of ill health, but for incapacitation due to 20 months of incompetence.

      Gbam! We the employers of the terrible excuse of leadership in the history of politics reserve and wield the power to kick them out i say FIRE HIM!

  • abodes_124

    Calm down people. I know it is once beaten twice shy given the shenanigans that surrounded Yaradua’s ‘good health’ with pictures to match until it was finally admitted that he had departed this world. I am fairy certain Buhari is alive and he will arrive back on the promised date in February with all the usual pomp and pageantry that accompanies his return after any ‘health’ trip. I only wish his media handlers could find some way of reassuring people instead of lambasting anyone asking for answers.

  • Ayinde

    Must that clown of a President go to London for bed rest when he can as well do same at Obudu Ranch. The keeps falling my hand no sense of discretion at all.

    • emmanuel

      Anew photo is posted today, where his wife sat near him with her hand bag on the floor (The wife of a cattle rearer without class). That suggest she came possibly into a hospital room and had to take picture of a now recovery Buhari.
      Well, he has no value coming back to put us in darkness, depression and hopelessness. The Hospital can as well detain him permanently.
      Buhari and his people are too daft. did you see the picture of the hospital staff with apron and hand gloves? That sure should be the reception of a VIP ward in a Hospital
      If you have a Buhari as presidents, the dafts around him are legion
