The Presidency has however said that the photo was taken in late February, and not during his second medical trip this year.

This was done in a tweet by Buhari’s Personal Assistant (New Media), Bashir Ahmad.

    If the picture is not new, and you still wouldn’t release a recent picture to debunk rumors, then it means Fayose’s claim that the President is unconscious and on life support is true. Your failure to release a picture- shows the situation is indeed dire that even the best camera/photshop cannot help present an acceptable look.

    Why are we such an unfortunate country? Same script, different actors. I taya

      It’s no longer whether you support buhari or not. That’s a thing of the past. The problem now is, why can’t he simply resign and move the country forward.
      The presidency needs to be transparent and tell the truth.
      Him being old and sick is nothing to hide.

    Am sorry but didn’t Nigerians ink their figure to collectively support this man?! so cudnt anyone see that he was old.

    Because if all the educated minds in Nigeria came together to collectively elect sending the country down this discourse…then its not really unfair to note “no1 in Nigeria; cares about Nigeria than they care about this Man’s health!”

      Omigosh! Get over yourself already. Do you understand the concept of democracy at all? It means you can try your best to make an informed decision, realise it may not have bern the best after all, and know what to watch out for next time. This happens in developed and developing countries. Ask Trump. Ask Bush. Heck, ask Obama.
      Ehn they voted Buhari in. Ehn it was a mistake (although I still say GEJ wasnt giving us much to work with either). At least not everyone who voted him in is still fighting for him simply to save face. So why don’t you move the hell on and stop dwelling in the past? That is Africa’s collective problem. We look at ‘past glory’ and revel in it.

    We all know the president is ill and his doctors will not release him till his condition improves. Why all the hoopla with the picture, what does it prove?

    Prayer is the best gift we can give to the president right now. We all knew he was old when we voted for him.

    God heal President Buhari of Nigeria

    Greedy old man that should be collecting pension and enjoying old age with his grandchildren. I can only imagine the amount of forex that has been spent on his medical treatment, not to mention the jet parking fees and numerous flights by so-called aides, meanwhile the average Nigerian does not have access to quality healthcare.
