The Senior Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has again spoken about the health status of the President among other matters.
The SSA noted that his boss possesses some distinctive personal attributes that are uncommon in many other politicians of the time.
Shehu stated these in an article released on Thursday titled ‘A President’s 32’ TV’.
The article reads in part: “President Muhammed Buhari has been known to be a disciplined retired military General who lived a simple and austere life devoid of ostentation.
“He is not known to have the common vices associated with politics and politicians. He does not smoke or drink alcohol.
“He didn’t belong to rich or royal families. He is known to have grown up with an enthusiastic desire to serve and his choice to serve in the army was not, therefore, by accident.”
Speaking on his health, Shehu argued that the president has always lived exceptionally healthy despite his old age.
He was also quoted to have said:
“Even at 74, Buhari is known to enjoy a better health status than people much younger until, of course, the recent bout of illness from which he recovered.”
On a final note, he stated that Buhari’s attributes that are hard to criticize include honesty, integrity among others.
“All politicians have their selling points. For President Muhammadu Buhari, it is his simplicity, honesty, incorruptibility
and personal integrity. Let the naysayers dispute!”, he emphasized.
