Our Nigeria’s Buhari needs further rest as is deputy launches action plan


Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari needs further rest in Britain following medical tests but there is no need to worry about him, his spokesman said on Tuesday, as his deputy launched a 60-day plan to improve the recession-mired economy.

Buhari, 74, went to London a month ago for medical tests for an unspecified illness, putting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, 59, in charge. He had originally planned to stay 10 days.

The government has sought to allay concerns of a void at the helm of Africa’s biggest economy during a recession by stressing that Osinbajo has full powers as acting president.

“The president needs to rest for some further time,” Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adesina told reporters in Abuja. “From the results of the (medical) tests further rest has been recommended.”

He declined to say when Buhari might be back or what his condition is, saying only: “There is no cause to worry. He is the one who owns his body. There is nobody who knows his body better than him.”
