These headlines are so annoying to wake up to. Why isn’t he back to Nigeria or was he elected to go on vacation spree as he likes?

What is the point of his stay back in London when he is not under close observation by his medical team?

Is he taking Nigerians for a ride?

If he is not fit as fiddle why contest to lead a large nation like Nigeria, ‘so power tasty’.

Senate President and Chairman of the National Assembly, Senator Bukola Saraki and the House of Representatives Speaker, Speaker Yakubu Dogara’s  visit today being the 15th day of February 2017 to President Muhammadu Buhari who has been on vacation in London.

I hope they all come back with great news on his health and why he would rather not update/address Nigerians openly.
