Following the controversy surrounding President Muhammadu Buhari's health status, and how prominent Nigerians are calling on him to make his health a priority and seek immediate help.

The former Osun State governor, and founding national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande has finally broken the silence as he said that the last time he met President Buhari he was not happy with his look, he couldn't recognise him, because he looked very stressful and weak.

Recalled that Chief Akande and Bola Tinubu had visited Buhari in London, where he (Buhari) went for a medical vacation which he spent 50 days while receiving treatment.

Since he made a return to Nigeria, President Buhari has been hardly seen in public, neither has he addressed the Nation on a live Television broadcast as a president of a nation.

The disappearance of President Muhammadu Buhari from public glare has sparked suspicious, as some Nigerians are assuming if he still living.

Reacting to Buhari's health status, Chief Bisi Akande in a statement revealed that Buhari is surrounded by unpatriotic greedy associates, that Nigerians should pray for his health.


The statement from Akande read: “The founding National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has urged Nigerians to pray fervently for President Muhammadu Buhari’s health. 
The health of the leader is intricately intertwine with the health of the nation. It is more so in a delicately fragile union of nations called Nigeria.

“I did not see President Buhari at the wedding of his grandson in Kaduna last Saturday. I was sad and I wept.

“When we met last at the wedding of his daughter in Abuja last December, I complained to him that I was not happy about his stressful looks. His reply connoted some allusions to circumstances where a honest man fighting corruption is surrounded mostly by unpatriotic, greedy ruling class.

“He felt painfully frustrated. He assured me he would soon be going on vacation. I then knew that corruption has effectively been fighting back. I prayed for Nigeria. That was why Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and I rushed to meet him in London in February this year when he was sick and could not return as scheduled from his vacation. The rest is history, but we must appreciate that his poor health is already taking a toll on the health of Nigeria as a polity.

“There are two challenges facing the country today. The first and most critical is the health of the president which, unfortunately, is a development beyond his control and for which we did not prepare. The second is the disorder and lack of cohesion between the National Assembly and the Presidency. These are two great red flag dangers that have the potential of plunging the country into unprecedented chaos and of destabilising the gains of democracy since 1999.”


He further said “the greatest danger, however, is for political interests at the corridor of power attempting to feast on the health of the president in a dangerous manner that may aggravate the problems between the executive and the National Assembly without realising if, in the end, it could drag the entire country into avoidable doom.

“As delicately fragile the union of nations making up Nigeria, so delicately fragile the democracy and the rule of laws governing the polity of the union called Nigerian federation. Certain Nigerian leaders, having been blindfolded by corruption, assume the possibility of using money in manipulating the national security agencies to intimidate, suppress and hold down certain ethnic nationalities or playing one ethnic nationality against the other, with a view to undermining the constitution and perversely upturning the rule of law.

“To avoid the ugly consequences of letting President Buhari’s ailments throw Nigeria into confusion, I am urging all Nigerians to begin to pray for his divine healing and perfect recovery.

“Let me warn today that those who wish to harvest political gains out of the health of the president are mistaken. This is not Nigeria of 1993. We are in a new national and global era of constitutionalism and order. We hope Nigerians have enough patience to learn from history.

“My greatest fear, however, is that the country should not be allowed to slide into anarchy and disorder of a monumental proportion.”
