Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina has explained that Buhari’s eight-month sickness back in 2017 had a ripple effect on his administration in total.
Adesina made this claim on Monday while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today, but still highlighted the accomplishments of Buhari’s government.
President Buhari was flown to the United Kingdom, (UK) for treatment on a cumulative average of eight months.
Asked whether the sickness was a setback, Adesina said: “It should be because when he fell sick in January 2017, he came back in March (and) went again in April and didn’t come back till August 19.”
“About all, eight months. That sickness took eight months of his time in the office. Of course, nobody would like that. But what we are glad about is that he came whole, sound and better than he went.”
