A report has claimed Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari currently suffers ill-health, a reason he cancelled his earlier official engagements to Lagos and Rivers State in the South-West and South-South regions of the country. The report says “authoritative” sources squealed the 73-year-old president is suffering an”infection in his left ear, otherwise called Meniere Disease, a challenge which has drastically reduced his outings in the last one week”. It added that the “president now suffers hearing impairment and routinely complains of severe pains and unusual sounds from that ear”.
“He is currently being treated by his personal physician and other experts from the State House Clinic, our sources said.
“An official said the president might seek treatment abroad if his condition does not improve in the next few days”, the report added.
However, Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, denies it. It is not true. It is the imagination of the writer. The President is fine and has been performing his duties, Adesina said.
