Buhari not ill — APC Campaign group

Muhammadu Buhari

The APC Presidential Campaign Organisation has asked Nigerians to ignore the “utterly silly and reckless statement” credited to the “over-exuberant” Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose to the effect that Muhammadu Buhari does not enjoy good health.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday, the Campaign Organisation dismissed as “unsolicited, reckless and silly” the allegation that former President Obasanjo was planning an imposition of Mr. Buhari on Nigeria as he allegedly did the late President Yar’Adua while ignoring their health conditions.

“GMB is fit as a fiddle,” said Garba Shehu, the Spokesman of the organisation. “He has no known ailment and is in excellent condition to pilot the affairs of the country.”

The statement added that Mr. Buhari is “almost a health freak,” who exercises regularly and undergoes medical examinations at regular intervals.

“On each occasion, the outcomes of those medicals have been favourable. The recent medicals he did gave him a clean bill of health,” Mr. Shehu said.

Mr. Shehu joked that “GMB is not given to curses otherwise he would have done as the late President Nnamdi Azikiwe did when a similar mischief played out over his health. Zik swore that whoever did this to him will expire before him, and they all did,” APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.
