2019: Lai Mohammed Speaks On Buhari’s Health

Lai Mohammed
Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari’s health won’t pose any problem to his re-election bid in 2019.
Mohammed said the President was fit to seek re-election in 2019, stressing that there was nothing to fear about his health.
Speaking during his tour of media houses in the United States, US, Mr. Mohammed also declared that Buhari’s administration had done well and recorded so many achievements in less than three years.
Mohammed said Buhari would find his campaign much easier in 2019 because his campaign will be achievement-based.
According to Mohammed, “I think the exchange has been quite robust. We’ve spoken on a wide range number of issues from security to the economy to the fight against corruption.
“In particular, the interview dwelt more on insecurity and also they were interested to know why the president wants to seek re-election and whether he is fit to run given the concerns about his health.
“Of course, I explained to them that it is those who have a morbid fear about president coming back in 2019 that are flying this kite about his health.
“But his health is very good, since he came back in August, he’s feeling very well, he’s never missed one single Federal Executive Council meeting or cancelled any schedule and his schedules have been very hectic.
“He has faced his presidential duties with vigour, urgency and purpose. Therefore, there’s nothing to fear about his health.”
The Minister insisted that most people, who have raised the issue of the President’s health, were not being sincere.
He added, “Mr President, yes was ill, has recovered very well, so on the grounds of his health, there’s nothing to fear about his health.
“Of course I told them that he’s going to campaign largely about his achievements in the areas of economy, fighting corruption, investing in people and that we are very confident that the people of Nigeria, whose lives has touched, will respond positively.
“And by the time his campaign starts, I think he would have even more to speak about in all the areas he promised during 2015 campaign.
“He can beat his chest and say ‘I have delivered on revamping the economy, I have delivered on fighting insecurity, I have delivered in fighting corruption’.
“He’s only going to consolidate on these things in his second term.”
