President Buhari critically ill
President Muhammadu Buhari is ill and is responding to treatments at the presidential villa.
A close source revealed to Premium Times that the President contracted an infection in his left ear, which is medically called Meniere Disease, a challenge which has drastically affected his outings the previous week.
This has led to the president’s hearing impairment and habitual complains of severe pains and unusual sounds from that ear.
Mr. Buhari had on three recent occasions cancelled official trips within and outside the country due to the infection and was represented at those events by his Vice, Yemi Osinbajo.
Our sources also revealed that aside his family, only a few personalities who visited at the Presidential Villa in the last one week knew of the president’s condition.
Mr. Buhari, who clocked 73 last December, was said to have confirmed it to some dignitaries who visited him in the past days, explaining to some of them that that was why he was unable to visit Lagos and Rivers as scheduled.
He was also said to have told some of his guests that he was struggling to give his failing health a major attention.
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 there’s no improvement in the next few days.
Despite hearing difficulty, the president, our sources said, managed to attend Jumaat service and host some important visitors, including former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan as well as some clergymen on Friday.
We tried to reach the Presidential spokespersons to comment for this story on Friday night but it proved abortive.
Other calls made to the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, failed to connect, Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant on media and publicity did not respond or return calls.
We just want to wish the President a speedy recovery…
