According to The
Cable, Femi Adesina, Pres. Buhari’s spokesman, while reacting to reports that
the president is ill, said: “Didn’t you see pictures of him receiving Anglican
bishops yesterday (Friday)? Did he look sick? The president is as fit as a

visit, Adesina said: “The presidency is one. The president has a right to
delegate duties to his deputy, who is the vice-president, and that is what he
has done.”
