I visited Buhari in London, but I won’t talk about his health – Amosun

Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has confirmed visiting President Muhammadu Buhari in London where the Nigerian leader is currently receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

There has been controversy over a picture showing Mr. Amosun and the president in the United Kingdom, amid allegations an old image was edited to make it look recent.

However, on Monday at an event at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Mr. Amosun told journalists that he indeed visited the president in London.

The event at the library was a climate change knowledge immersion workshop organised by the Federal Government in conjuction with the World Bank.

“Yes it is true I visited our president in London and he is doing fine. If you ask me pointedly whether I saw him or not, yes I did and that is the only thing that I can say. And of course you can see he is very well, he is okay. So I don’t know what else you want me to say,” Mr. Amosun said.

Asked of the condition he found the president when he visited, t‎he governor said he was not in the right position to talk about his health, saying such should be left to his spokes person who were already doing that.

“I am not one of the spokespersons of Mr. President; so it will be out of place for me to talk on that. But then, they are doing their job and you’ve listened to all that they have said,” Mr. Amosun said.

      You need prayer more than any one. Why the fixation with death?

      • Otile

        Who needs prayers, Imam or Tunsj? By the grace of God since Imam left for his hale and hearty medical vacation Shiites and Igbo people have not suffered massacres. May it remain so.

    • Tunsj

    Imam’s undisclosed sickness has silenced Yoruba ass-lickers. So far ass_holes like Mofu ola, maria, awogbeoloshi, mumuwole, tundemash, artful dodger, rommel and others have been playing dead. We have suffered less insults from them. Utangirma Allah.

    Yes, i have listened to all the presidents spokespersons have said and indeed they are doing a great job in telling lies and misinforming us, they kept changing the reason for the presidents trip, from vacation, to treatment to leave to rest etc they said the president is healthy and OK, as fit as a fiddle and yet his doctors detained a healthy man from travelling. The spokespersons and minister of information are a disgrace to the journalism profession, they insult the intelligence of Nigerians and go further to call us impatient, ungrateful, wailing wailers, or Pro-PDP just because we do not agree for negative and retrogresive CHANGE, we pay the slaries of governemnt officials and have a right to question how they are managing our country. There is nothing wrong in a president falling sick, why all the false pretense, there is a limit to lies, they are tempting the gods, a mans health detioration cannot remain hidded, if he is not seen physically walking, and leave for president after Yaradua fiasco is 90 DAYS. And there is no extension, the president must come back before then or the vice is sworn in.

    Constituted authority… Haaaa! Even you too???

    This is the mother of all lies. Donald Trump did not speak with Buhari. Impossible! This is the same way BBC media in London relayed a broadcast ‘live’ on BBC radio in very similar circumstances when Musa (a former so-called Ex President) was ill. As Nigerians complained and demanded to see and hear from Musa, BBC came to the rescue and his ‘voice’ was broadcast ‘live’. BUT we all know that it was a lie. Millions would have changed hands. Donald Trump is a deal maker. And as long as US interest is not threatened, he will say whatever is necessary for the right amount. The Kitchen Cabinet of Buhari should tell us how much they paid for this latest propaganda.

      Your sadness won’t end soon because Buhari is coming back. So prepare for more BP!

    Why don’t you people, bury your faces in shame. Who really cares anymore, if you people sleep in his bathroom in England. You people, with your lies, turned Nigeria to a nation without shame and lacking all respects.
    It shows, how ignorant people are in charge of Nigeria destiny, ibori is celebrating his thanks giving in a church in Nigeria, all these confused people are celebrating a visit, to the country president, who Nigerians don’t know where he is at, but are been lied to by the media, his friends, the presidency and apc cabals, about his state of health, to medical report not ready. Nigerians are tired of all these lies.
