'' If Mr President feels like telling the world his ailment, so be it. I don’t think he’s under an obligation to tell anyone.” says Lai Mohammed

  "President Buhari?s health is a private matter even if the government is paying for it" Lai Mohammed  says

Following the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York held on September 2017,the President,Mohammadu Buhari,departed New York for London at about 08:07 On Thursday morning. Just while the president did not come back home straight from
the meeting instead of going to Londo,we do not know.

However,knowing that the president had returned from London few weeks earlier where he had received medical care for over three months,left Nigerians with much concern that his flight back to London from New York was on medical visit.

However,in the recent  interview with the Minister of Information and Culture Lai Muhammed on AFK over the issue,the Minister was asked why the health status of president Buhari has not been made public and his response was that the health status of president Buhari is a private matter and any information regarding it cannot be divulged by anyone even if the state (government) is paying for his medical care.This was what the Minister said:

"It’s not strange at all for a sitting president to be ill and it’s not strange either for the state to take care of his medical bill. I think there’s so much speculation as to what he’s 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 don’t think he’s under an obligation to tell anyone.”
