- Senator Ali Ndume says Buhari’s absence is not affecting governance in any way
- The senator representing Borno south in the Senate says he sees no reason why some people should be calling for report on Buhari’s health
- Meanwhile, a report by online newspaper, Sahara Reporters claims the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, has been restricted from seeing President Muhammdu Buhari in London
Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume has urged Nigerians to focus their energy on pressurizing governments at all levels to perform their duties effectively rather than probing the health condition of President Muhammdu Buhari.
The suspended senator representing Borno south in the Senate made the statement in an interview with journalist over the weekend, Sun reports.
Senator Ndume who said Buhari’s absence is not affecting governance in any way, noted that it was unnecessary for Nigerians to demand for Buhari’s health report.
He said: “Buhari is not Nigeria and Nigeria is not Buhari. The presidency is functioning and his absence is not affecting governance. So I see no reason why people should some people be calling for report of his health. I think we should rather be praying for his quick recovery and focus on asking governments address security, economy, workers wages among others. We have more issues to contend with in this country.”
Meanwhile, a report by online newspaper, Sahara Reporters claims the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, has been restricted from seeing President Muhammdu Buhari who is ongoing medical treatment in London.

NAIJ.com recalls that Aisha Buhari on July 2, left Abuja to visit her ailing husband in London, according to a statement by Suleiman Haruna, director of Information to the wife of the president.
But Sahara Reporters has stated that contrary to believe that Aisha is with her husband in London, she is not staying at Abuja House in London with her husband, but living at a rented apartment.
The outlet alleged that old photos of Aisha and her husband were circulated online to make it seem like the wife of the president met with her husband.
The online media also claims that the wife of the president visits Buhari only when allowed.
