Buhari’s Health: Tinubu Calls For Prayer

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has spoken about the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari. He admonished Nigerians to only pray for the ailing president rather than nurture worries.

At his condolence visit to to the Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje over the death of Dan Masani Kano, Alhaji Maitama Sule,yesterday, he noted that health challenge can be uncontrollable for human but President Buhari has been honest to Nigerians about his health condition.


He said:

The President did not lie to us. He told us he was ill; and he needs to take care of himself. I don’t see any crisis about this situation. We are a nation that is very humane, honest, compassionate, and resilient. We take care of our own neighbours.”

I am not a member of presidential cabinet, but I am a member of his party and I am a Nigerian. All we can do is to pray for him.”


On the controversy between between the Presidency and the National Assembly, Tinubu opined that there is no such unfair affairs between the two arms of government. He noted the criticism from both arms are only democratic.


“Honestly, I don’t see any problem in the crisis between the legislature and executive because we are in politics and in politics, there is an inbuilt conflict resolution mechanism.
Crisis, argument and communication are part of politics and there is a self-corrective process.
The National Assembly is there to voice their objective or objection.  It is constitutional to take action against the opposition while the executive is to do the job of executive. They don’t have to be dog and nick to one another.

But for the peace, unity, prosperity, harmony and progress of the country, they have to work together; they are co-joined twins. No one can consume one another. If they play the politics well, Nigeria will be better for it”, the ex-governor of Lagos state noted.
