The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, again on Wednesday assured Nigerians that there was no cause for alarm over the state of health of President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently in London, United Kingdom to see his doctors.
He said the President was in competent hands in London
Mohammed gave the assurance while speaking with State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo.
“On the issue of the President’s health, Mr. President is in very competent hands and there is no cause for alarm,” the minister said while responding to a question on the current health status of the President.
The minister also gave an indication that the Presidency might not sign the 2017 Appropriation Bill recently passed by the National Assembly any time soon.
He said Ministries, Departments and Agencies were still busy scrutinising the document forwarded by the National Assembly.
“On the issue of budget, Ministries, Departments and Agencies are still going through their budgets and they are coordinating with the Minister of Budget and National Planning,” he simply said.
Buhari left Nigeria for the United Kingdom on May 7 for a follow-up consultation with his doctors.
His wife, Aisha, on Tuesday left the country to join him in London.
