President Muhammadu Buhari’s health status featured at a forum in Lagos yesterday with his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity,Mr.Adesina saying :“There is no need for apprehension.”
Adesina spoke to reporters on the sidelines of the of the launch of the book Against The Run of Play written by Olusegun Adeniyi, chairman of THISDAY editorial board.
“God spared the president the first time. Remember he said that he has never been as ill as he was before,” he said.
“ The same God that spared him will also ensure that he returns to full health. Nigerians prayed and God answered, Nigerians are still praying and God will still answer.”
Asked to respond to calls by some Nigerians that Buhari should resign on health ground,Adesina said the opinions of a few people demanding the president’s resignation could not, in anyway, override the verdict of the 15million Nigerians that elected him into office.
But he conceded while the Buhari should resign agitators have a right to their opinion.
“Saying the president should resign is an opinion but don’t forget that 15 million people elected the president so if one or two people express their opinion, will their opinion override that of 15 million people that voted for him?” he said.
“Those who are expressing their opinion have rights to their opinion.”
