Buhari Not Yet Capable of Running Around - Presidency

The Senior Special As­sistant to the President on Media, Mallam Garba Shehu, has told Nige­rians not to expect President Muhammadu Buhari to start running around shortly after his return from medical vaca­tion in the United Kingdom.
Shehu made this known yesterday during an interview with the Arise Television, in which he also stated that the Presidency would not dis­close the nature of Buhari’s illness.

President Buhari, to the relief of most Nigerians, re­turned back to the country last Friday after spending over 50 days to attend to an undisclosed ailment.
During his absence, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo held sway as Acting President.
Nigerians had expect­ed that with his return, the reins of power would be re­turned to him and he would immediately commence ac­tions to take the country out of recession.
In the interview, which was monitored by a correspondent in Abuja, She­hu averred that since Buha­ri’s ministers were the most powerful in the country’s history, needing little super­vision, there was no need for the President to immediately begin to exert himself.
On whether the Presi­dent would be going for an­other medical vacation, She­hu said that it was up to his doctors to say when next Bu­hari should travel for further medical checkup.
Meanwhile, President Buhari will today officially write the leaderships of the two chambers of the Nation­al Assembly to notify them of his return to the country from the United Kingdom.
He is also expected to re­sume his official duties, ac­cording to his Special Adviser on media, Mr. Femi Adesina who confirmed it through a twit on Friday. “PMB will Monday transmit letter to National Assembly on his return to the country. That makes his return to work formal, and constitutional,” he twitted.
