Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha on Sunday dismissed a statement that President Muhammadu Buhari traveled to Germany to seek medical attention to an undisclosed ailment.
A former lawmaker, Dr Junaid Mohammed had said Buhari went to treat an undisclosed illness while deceiving Nigerians with a state visit.
But Rochas who traveled with the President denied the assertion.
He said the President only visited an injured Nigerian soldier receiving treatment at a Berlin hospital.
“President never went for any medical check-up. At least I was with him till 1.00a.m, after the dinner before I left him and he went to bed,
“I went to bed and the following day I came out to see him in the morning, So, the president never went for any medical at all. The only hospital we went to was to see a general who had an accident.
“These are some of the things that people make uninformed comments and I do not know why in this part of our world we are always happy when someone is going down. I think there is need to change our attitude completely.
“If this issue had been on issue on how to move Nigeria forward, you won’t see on social media, you will not see comment on it, nobody we talk about it,’’ he said.
