The special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina has said there is no need for tension over the president’s health condition.
Adesina reportedly made this statement on Friday, April 28, during the launch of ‘Against The Run of Play’, a book written by Olusegun Adeniyi, chairman of THISDAY Newspapers editorial board, Premium Times reports.
Adesina said: “Saying the president should resign is an opinion but don’t forget that fifteen million people elected the president.” Adesina said there is no need for apprehension, as God is looking over the president and will spare his life and restore his health.
He said: “God spared the president the first time. Rememberhe said that he has never been as ill as he was before. The same God that spared him will also ensure that he returns to full health.” “Nigerians prayed and God answered, Nigerians are still praying and God will still answer.”
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, April 28, was absent as Muslim faithful and top government officials gathered inside a mosque at the Presidential Villa for the Juma’at service.
