FLASH | President Buhari Seriously Ill, Down With Meniere Disease

President Muhammadu Buhari is ill and is being treated at the presidential villa, online newspaper Premium Times has reported.

Recall that on 22nd May, 2016, SIGNAL reported that President Muhammadu Buhari called off his scheduled visit to Lagos due to an ear infection.

In what it termed an authoritative report on Buhari’s health condition, Premium Times reports on Saturday that the president has an infection in his left ear, otherwise called Meniere Disease, a challenge which has drastically reduced his outings in the last one week.

As a result of the infection, the president now suffers hearing impairment and routinely complains of severe pains and unusual sounds from that ear, those familiar with his condition disclosed.

Mr. Buhari had on three recent occasions cancelled official trips within and outside the country due to the infection and was represented at those events by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

According to reports, Buhari is currently being treated by his personal physician and other experts from the State House Clinic.

Presidential spokespersons did not respond to calls from SIGNAL on Saturday morning.

More details to come.
