The Information Minister, Lai Mohammed, on Tuesday, said that President Muhammadu Buhari, is under no obligation to disclose his medical condition, even though he is paying his medical bills with taxpayers’ money.
Recall, that claims from political opponents that he had prostate cancer have been denied, but civil society groups still want to know whether taxpayers’ money was used for the private treatment abroad.

The Minister reacting, suggested that the silence from the President was not unusual, just hours after Buhari returned to Abuja from another round of check-ups in the British capital, London.
“It is not strange at all for a sitting President to be ill, and it is not strange either for the State to take care of his medical bill”, Lai Mohammed told AFP in an interview.




“I think there is so much speculation as to what he is been treated for.
“I think we would rather respect his privacy. If Mr President feels like telling the world his ailment, so be it. I do not think he is under an obligation to tell anyone.”
Buhari’s mystery illness also comes as political parties and potential candidates, jockey for positions ahead of the next Presidential election, in 2019.
Recall, that Buhari’s Women Affairs Minister, Aisha Alhassan, had claimed earlier this month, that he had said he would only serve one four-year term of office.
However, Mohammed, who was the Spokesman for Buhari’s All Progressives Congress, APC, campaign that unseated Goodluck Jonathan at the last vote in 2015, refused to comment on the issue
“If he’s going to run that is left to him, but right now, his major preoccupation is delivering on all his electoral promises”, he said.
Buhari returned to Nigeria in late August, after more than 100 days away in the United Kingdom, UK. He has since been met with a rising tide of support in South-Eastern Nigeria, for a breakaway State of Biafra.
