According to The Cable, Femi Adesina, Pres. Buhari’s spokesman, while reacting to reports that the president is ill, said: “Didn’t you see pictures of him receiving Anglican bishops yesterday (Friday)? Did he look sick? The president is as fit as a fiddle.
Anyone who says he is sick is telling lies. That is a figment of the person’s imagination. Just yesterday he received the primate of the Anglican Communion and arch bishops at the presidential villa. He also received former Pres. Obasanjo. He is hale and hearty.
The imagination of whoever says that is on overdrive.” Responding to why the president has been delegating VP Osinbajo to places he initially planned to visit, Adesina said: “The presidency is one. The president has a right to delegate duties to his deputy, who is the vice-president, and that is what he has done.”
