Revealed: Nigerian President, Buhari is Currently Sick with 'Meniere Disease'?...Read details of his treatment


Premium Times has authoritatively reported that President Muhammadu Buhari is sick and is being treated at the presidential villa, Abuja.
 
It was gathered that the president has an infection in his left ear, otherwise called Meniere Disease, a challenge which has drastically reduced his outings in the last one week.
 
As a result of the infection, the president now suffers hearing impairment and routinely complains of severe pains and unusual sounds from that ear, those familiar with his condition told the publication.
 
Recall that President Buhari had on three recent occasions cancelled official trips within and outside the country due to the infection and was represented at those events by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
 
A statement by the presidency on Friday said the vice president would again represent the president at the 48th Ordinary Summit of Head of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) holding this weekend in Dakar, Senegal.
 
The statement by Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the vice president, said VP Osinbajo would leave for Dakar on Friday and was expected back in Abuja on Sunday.
 
Multiple sources in the Presidency told Premium Times on Friday that the president got the ear infection about two weeks ago, adding that apart from his family, only a few high profile individuals who visited at the Presidential Villa in the last one week were aware of the president’s illness.
 
The president who clocked 73 last December, was said to have confirmed it to some dignatories who visited him in the past days, explaining to some of them that that was why he was unable to visit Lagos and Rivers as scheduled.
 
He was also said to have told his guest that he was struggling to give his failing health a major attention.
 
He is currently being treated by his personal physician and other experts from the State House Clinic as an official said the president might seek treatment abroad if his condition does not improve in the next few days.
 
Despite hearing difficulty, the president, a source said, managed to attend Jumaat service and host some important visitors, including former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan as well as some clergymen on Friday.
 
Presidential spokespersons could not be reached to comment for this story on Friday night. While calls to the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, failed to go through, Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant on media and publicity did not answer or return calls.
