Buhari will speak from UK if he wishes, no one can compel him – Adesina

The Presidency on Thursday insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari is not ill, while stating that no one can force him to speak.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said this in an interview with CNBC Africa.

Adesina said the President is not in any hospital contrary to reports making the round.

He said, “The President is in London on vacation. He is not in any hospital and he is not ill.

“When he was travelling last week, the statement we put out was that he was going on vacation and during the vacation, he would do routine medical check-up and nothing has changed from what we pushed out last week.

“If anybody has fed something else into the rumour mill, that is just what it is — rumour.”

Adesina said the President has the right to decide if he wants to address Nigerians from the UK.

The presidential aide said any attempt to compel Buhari to do so would amount to infringement on his rights.

“The fact that he is a President, he still has his rights. Compelling him to come out and talk will be infringing on his rights.

“The President will talk if he wishes to. If he doesn’t wish to, nobody will compel him to talk.

“The truth is that the President is on vacation and he has given a date on which he will return to work,’’ Adesina said.
