Buhari’s Health To Determine His Decision To Seek Re-Election
From what we are gathering, President Muhammadu Buhari will not just jump at re-contesting in the 2019 presidential election.
The president will first consider his health before making such a big decision, according to his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.
Buhari twice suffered serious health challenge in 2017, one of which he spent over three months in a London hospital.
“The President is not a frivolous person. If he thinks that his health cannot carry anything, he will not do it.
“Every day you see the President, you see a glow about him and you see freshness about him. I think he is even in a better state than when he came in 2015. It’s all to the glory of God.
“Once he assesses that his health can carry it, there’s nothing wrong if he steps into the fray. But he has the final decision.”
Buhari has many times, though indirectly, indicated his interest in going for second term in office, but has not officially come public with his decision.
Buhari had returned to Nigeria on March 10, 2017 after spending 51 days in London during which he attended to his health.
He then returned to the British capital on May 7 after handing over power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who functioned as Acting President in his absence, and spent 103 days attending to his health. He came back to Nigeria in August 2017 and has been fit since then.
