President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the statement credited to the United States President, Donald Trump allegedly referring to the Nigerian president as lifeless.
The reaction which came through the Buhari Media Organisation was in response to today’s report by the Financial Times that the American President made disrespectful comments imputing ill health on President Buhari.
The Media Organisation said President Muhammadu Buhari is fit and capable to run for the 2019 elections and oversee the affairs of the country for four more years President Donald Trump’s hate speech notwithstanding.
A statement signed by its Chairman Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Maduekwe, noted that this was not the first time the US President was heard to make such derogatory remarks at World leaders.
It added that President Buhari remains fit and sprightly, even for the next decade.
The group recalled that during President Buhari’s visit to President Trump in the White House, the US President commended the successes that the Buhari administration has recorded especially in the fight against insurgency and the war on corruption.
The Buhari Media Organization noted that President Buhari would not be distracted by this report, whether it was indeed said or in fact unsaid, but would in his character continue to remain focused on his mandate to deliver on his promises to the Nigerian people.
