In an interview with Punch, the special adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina rubbished claims by some people that the president violated the FG’s rule that said government officials will not seek medical treatment abroad.
Adesina said that the President didn’t violate any rule as he didn’t go for medical treatment but for a vacation.
“You can check the statement we issued on Sunday again. The President did not go to London for treatment.
“We made it clear in that statement that he had been treated in Nigeria here.
“The medical experts here only told him that since he will be in London, he can seize that opportunity for evaluation.
“The President has not broken any rule.”
The statement issued on Sunday read, “President Buhari will take 10 days off and travel to London from Monday June 6th, to rest.
“During the holiday, the President will see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist for a persistent ear infection.
“The President was examined by his Personal Physician and an E.N.T Specialist in Abuja and was treated.
“Both Nigerian doctors recommended further evaluation purely as a precaution.”
