Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said when the President returns from his medical vacation, those he described as "filthy dreamers" will hide their heads in shame.
The presidential spokesperson, who made the remark, in a piece said the filthy dreamers are those who "despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities".
Adesina noted that the President would never respond to such people.
He state, "President Buhari has been indisposed since the beginning of the year.
"It is human, and presidents, despite their elevated status, remain human.
"If there is anybody who considers himself 100 percent healthy, or who bears what William Shakespeare calls 'a charmed life', let that person stand up to be identified.
"All mortals are doomed to sickness, they can recover, and they can die.
"That is the truth that has been internalised by millions of people praying for the recovery of our President. And that is where the shallowness, vacuousness, and hollowness of people who wish the President dead, and carry unfounded rumours, is on stark display.
"Filthy dreamers. They speak evil of dignities, and despise dominion.
"But we forgive them, for they know not what they do. When President Buhari returns (as God would make him do) where would they hide their faces? In shame."
