Again, Buhari’s Health Condition Panics Northern Elders

Sources say the General is allegedly suffering from prostrate Cancer but it could not be immediately confirmed from any medical records.

It was reported that Buhari collapsed during the presidential campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Calabar, Cross River State.

Though the party had denied the report, it was learnt that the development had immediately prompted meetings among top hierarchy of the Northern political establishment to review the Buhari situation.

The North was becoming wary of a possible repeat of the situation it found itself following the death of President Umaru Yar’Adua in office in May 2010, some three years into his tenure, following a debilitating sickness.

Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP through the party’s verified twitter handle claims that Maman Daura led cabal is keeping the President, the tweet reads “the cabal prevents everyone from seeing the president including his ministers and aides. The president is a prisoner in Aso Rock.”

@PdpNigeria wrote, “FLASH: just like we said last week, president Buhari is going to London to see his doctors. He has been critically ill for 14days now.”

“The cabal have convinced the president not to come clean and tell Nigerians that he is sick. They are managing the president secretly.”

It added that member of “The cabal are the ones running the country. They have turned the president into a prisoner.”

“There is a cabal around the president who are trying to plunge Nigeria into serious crisis. Mamman Daura is the head of that cabal.”

The illness had surfaced during the 2007 presidential campaign, leading to rumours of Yar’Adua’s death, but he bounced back on the campaign train and won the election.

Then APC spokesman in the South-East who now heads a government agency, Osita Okechukwu, had dismissed claims about Buhari’s health, saying that the alarm was designed to create doubts about the APC presidential candidate.

He said: “They are only trying to dig up what is non-existent; no record of their claim. The General has his doctor and anyone can contact him,
rather than speculate.”

The current ill-development was said to have been the reason the President couldn’t go to Lagos where he was billed to commission some projects penultimate week.

The same scenario played out last week in which the president failed to show up at Ogoniland, Rivers State, where he was to flag off the clean-up of oil spill in the area.
