Does it even matter?

Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, has revealed how his boss recently shunned a top official of the government for undermining the authority of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

Punch, which monitored the programme, reported that the spokesperson did not mention the name of the top official that was turned back by Buhari, but used the illustration to show that no minister was now undermining the authority of Osinbajo and to emphasise that Osinbajo is in control.

"Though I don't know who pays Buhari's health bills but as the president of Nigeria, he has a right to be treated by the country", Adesina said. He is a public official.

Shehu stated that there is no element of truth in such claims and to prove his claim, he made a reference to a recent event where a senior Government official took some documents directly to Buhari in London and was promptly redirected back to the acting President without any consideration from Buhari.

"Nigeria is taking care of the bill?" the anchor asked, and Adesina responded, "Most likely. I don not know for sure".

Adesina was among the delegation that met Buhari during the weekend.

"Once the President has transferred power, if you are the Inspector-General of Police and the Acting President says 'go and do ABC, ' you are fined if you don't do it. The president I saw was nearly completely mending", Adesina said. "The man responsible for the country is in Abuja, go back to him". If you know the president, at the peak of his performance when he just assumed the presidency and went to different parts of the world, you will know that he is a man of tremendous energy and tremendous ability.

"In many cases they are leaving behind poorly funded health services, which most of their citizens have to rely on", the article on BBC reads, explaining the plight of the countries from which these African leaders come.
