President Muhammadu Buhari's health and continuous absence at official functions caused fresh anxiety in Aso rock villa.

Nigerians are also wondering ove the state of health of President Buhari, who returned to the country on March 10 after a 49-day medical sojourn in London, United Kingdom.

The 74-year-old Nigerian leader was only seen in public once throughout last week, when he joined other Muslim faithful for a Juma’at service on Friday at a mosque located near his office inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“It is no longer news that the President has been sick. His ill health coupled with his age is responsible for the scaling down of his activities,” one of the sources told PUNCH on Saturday.


In the Presidential Villa, there have been continuous whispers among workers over Buhari’s continued absence.

The concern was further heightened when it was observed that many of the President’s assignments were transferred to the Vice President.

When PUNCH contacted the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Saturday to react to the fresh anxiety over the President’s health, he said Buhari was recuperating, adding that the prayer of all was that he recovered fully soon.
