PMB’s Doctors Advised Him To Take Things Slowly — Presidency 

The Presidency, on Thursday, assured
Nigerians that there was no need for apprehension over the state of
health of President Muhammadu Buhari.
It, however, said as eager as the President wanted to be up and about, his doctors had advised him to take things slowly.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
Shehu explained that Buhari’s absence at the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday was a last-minute decision.
“As eager as he is to be up and about, the President’s doctors have
advised on his taking things slowly, as he fully recovers from the long
period of treatment in the United Kingdom some weeks ago,” he said.

While saying the President, on his return to the country, made Nigerians
aware of the state of his health while he was in London, Shehu stated
that full recovery was sometimes a slow process, requiring periods of
rest and relaxation, as the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai
Mohammed, intimated in his press briefing after the FEC meeting on
Wednesday.

He added, “Despite his lack of
visibility, Nigerians should be assured that President Buhari has not
abdicated his role as the Commander-in-Chief of Nigeria.
“He receives daily briefings on the
activities of government, and confers regularly with his Vice-President,
Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
“God is the giver of life and health. We
are grateful that He has seen our President through the worst period of
his convalescence in London.
“We are thankful that the President
has passed a number of benchmarks already. We pray that God continues to
see him through this period of recuperation.”
