    • Haba mallam

      Ojukwu couldn’t even move his feet before he died let alone visit the other. Buhari still stand solid and will continue to do so until 2024 and beyond.

    • Malik Isah

      now that they did not bring his corpse home as you prayed for, it is the other room that is your problem.

  • Haba mallam

    Alhamdulilah Baba ya dawo. May Allah give my president good health.ameen.

  • Joe

    Its insane to expect this man to do ANYTHING in the “other room”. He should just concentrate on his health.

  • Suleiman

    Welcome back baba. May God continue to grsnt you good heslth. Please do us a favor, resign and concentrate of your health. Many more trips is not helpful to the nation, neithe is that good for the economy. You will serve Nigeria better if you resigned and let Osinbajo take the mantle of leadership. This is how your serve your motherland, by being honest and stepping side.
