Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, has defended his principal’s slow pace, saying it is not expected of Buhari to “charge in like a bull” into his normal schedule.
He said the president is still trying to adapt after his longest medical vacation.
“You need to be alive before you can govern. It’s only natural that if a president falls sick, he should sick medical attention,” Adesina said on Sunday Politics on Channels Television.
“If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t even rule. So, it is just natural that the president went away when he needed it. And when you have been ill, to quote him, he said he had never been that sick in his life.
“So, when you come back you don’t go charging in like a bull into your normal schedule. You work yourself gradually into it, and that is what the president has been doing, and he is doing it effectively.
“When the president came back on March 10 and he addressed Nigerians. He said after some weeks, he will go back for a review. I think that is just laying the cards on the table. I think he should be commended, not some people wanting to make it an albatross around his neck. He should rather be commended for being forthright with Nigerians.
“In a matter of weeks, I will be going back for review, the president said that, and for now there is no cause for us to say he will not go back, but whenever he is going, he will make Nigerians know.”
Buhari returned to Nigeria March 10, after spending 50 days in the UK on vacation.
