‘I Don’t Know Who Is Paying For Buhari’s Treatment’ – Femi Adesina

  
Few days after paying a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari in London, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said he does not know who is paying for the President’s treatment.
 
Adesina said this on Monday when he made an appearance on Channels Television’s "Politics Today", during which he shared his thoughts and feelings about meeting his boss for the first time in more than three months.
 
Seun Okinbaloye, anchor of the programme, asked Adesina, “Who is paying for the president’s treatment?”
 
“Does it matter at this point?” The presidential spokesman asked, to which Okinbaloye fired back: “We need to know, he is our president. He is a public official. This shouldn’t be shrouded in secrecy.”
 
Then Adesina said: “I do not know who is paying, but as a president, he has a right to be treated by the country. Nigeria is taking care of the bill?” Okinbaloye asked, and Adesina responded, “Most likely. I do not know for sure.”
 
While dismissing the position that Buhari has not returned to the country because he is too frail to travel, Adesina said: “We can’t depend on the word out there, but I can depend on what I saw with my eyes. I saw the president and I know that he has recovered considerably.

“Once the doctors certify him, he will surely come back… If you know the president, at the peak of his performance when he just assumed the presidency and went to different parts of the world, you will know that he is a man of tremendous energy and tremendous ability.

“If a man was heal and he has mended, that means he can do what he used to and even more.”
 
While the President’s spokesman was unsure of his return date, he said the President was “like his old self”.

“The President I saw was sharp, he was smart, he was lucid. The President I saw was like his old self, almost completely mended. But then, like we said in the statement we issued which is what he said to us in the first place, he would come when his doctors say it’s time to go,” he said.
