The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Sunday insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari did not lie about his health condition.
Tinubu said the President had told Nigerians that he needed to take care of himself. He urged the citizenry to keep praying for Buhari's full recovery.
The former Governor of Lagos stated this while speaking in Kano during a condolence visit to Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, over the death of Dan Masani Kano, Alhaji Maitama Sule.
Tinubu said "there is nothing anybody can do in the face of health challenge".
He added: "The President did not lie to us. He told us he was ill; and he needs to take care of himself. I don't see any crisis about this situation. We are a nation that is very humane, honest, compassionate, and resilient. We take care of our own neighbours.
"I am not a member of presidential cabinet, but I am a member of his party and I am a Nigerian. All we can do is to pray for him."
Buhari has not returned to the country, since leaving for medical check-up on May 9, 2017.
