The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to disclose his health status to Nigerians.
The president of the NMA, Prof Mike Ogirima, in interview with the Punch on Thursday, May 4, explained that Buhari’s disclosure of his health status would douse tension and rumours about his well-being.
The NMA President stated: “He is the number one public servant and the father of the nation. He has rights and privileges. It will douse a lot of rumours and tension, if he discloses his health status to the public.”
Ogirima also said those managing the information concerning Buhari’s health have not done well.
“To the Presidency, I wish they could manage the information around the President well. To Nigerians, who are concerned, I wish to advise them to be prayerful, particularly for the good health of our dear father of the nation,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the presidency has confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari will depart Nigeria for a medical leave abroad when the time is right.
NAIJ.com reports that the personal assistant to President Buhari on social media Lauretta Onochie disclosed this on Thursday, May 4.
She however said no amount of force can make the president step out of the country until when his doctors say it is all right to do so.
