How I came out better from sickness, Buhari reveals

NIGERIA’S President, Muhammadu Buhari has revealed how he became stronger and better then when he was sick.

It would be recalled that President Buhari embarked on medical vacation twice in the outgoing year. Also, the President stressed that he had never been sick in his 75 years as he was this year.

Receiving the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Mohammed Bello who led FCT residents to pay homage to him yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Buhari told the gathering the secret behind his strong and good looks.

“I am very grateful for taking time out on a very important day to come out and spend it with us, It has been a tough year I thought I was 74 but I was told I was 75. I have never been so sick, even the 30 months civil war I was stumbling under farm of yams or cassava. But this sickness, I don’t know but I came out better, because all those who saw me before and when I came back said I look much better”, said President Buhari.

He added, “but I have explained it to the public that as a General I used to give orders now I take orders. The Doctors told me to feed my stomach and sleep for longer hours that is why I am looking much better.

“I thank you very much for coming and making all the sacrifice because today is a crowded day for me from early in the morning until maybe the following morning with the family and friends and neigbhours and one thing I learnt to respect is good neigbhourliness both at individual and national level that was why when I was elected my first trip was Chad, Niger, Cameroon and Benin Republic.

“If you are in good terms with your neigbhours then you can make some savings for development but if you start fighting your neigbhours then am afraid the resources you have you will lose it in trying to be very cleaver, so I try to be very close to my neigbhours both individually and nationally I thank you very much for being very good neigbhours, including the one on my left (referring to Senator Philip Aduda).

Averring that the year 2017 has been a tough year for Nigeria, Buhari hoped that the year 2018 will be a much more prosperous one, but noted that the rainy season for 2017 was very good for many farmers.

Mr Bello thanked God for not only restoring the President’s health, but also making him stronger and better looking.

The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) FCT Chapter, Pastor Jonah Samson, noted that the Buhari’s administration his succeeding in the fight against corruption and prayed that the legacy will survive beyond the administration.

While commending the Government in the efforts to create jobs, he, however urged for more employment creation for youth.
