The Presidency yesterday denied an online report claiming that President Muhammadu Buhari was ill and treating an ear infection. Speaking on telephone, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, dismissed the report as false.
The President, Adesina said, was fine and discharging his duties as President of Nigeria. “It is not true. It is the imagination of the writer. The President is fine and has been performing his duties.”
The report claimed that the President was ill with infection in his left ear, known as Meniere Disease, and that the President was being treated at the Presidential Villa by his personal physician and other experts from the State House Clinic.
