- Mohammed said the President went to treat an undisclosed ailment, but his aides made it look like a state visit.
A second republic lawmaker and medical doctor, Junaid Mohammed has alleged that President Buhari went to Germany for medical treatment.
According to Punch, Mohammed said the President went to treat an undisclosed ailment, but his aides made it look like a state visit.
He also said those hiding Buhari’s sickness are making the same mistake the aides of Late President Umar Yar’adua made.
Mohammed also stated that those behind the cover up do not love Buhari more than the Nigerians who voted for him.
According to him, “The reason the president travelled to Germany was not what it was advertised to be. The trip is basically a medical trip. It was undertaken for medical reasons. It was only converted to a state visit as an afterthought and that tells you the level of contempt the handlers of the president have for Nigerians. We blamed the handlers of Yar’Adua for the way they kept his ailment secret.
“Now, Nigerians have a big surprise awaiting them. They have not been told the truth about the real state of the man’s (Buhari) health. He is our president. Nigerians elected him into office and we must never allow individuals to play with our intelligence and do something stupid and dangerous to our country. I hope and pray that next time, the Nigerian people would be told the truth. It’s a medical trip; they (handlers) issued statements to camouflage the real reason behind the trip.”
President Buhari on Saturday, October 8, 2016, in Berlin, Germany, visited a Nigerian military officer receiving treatment in a hospital, as he rounded off his three-day official visit to the country.
