The Presidency has denied the media reports that President Muhammadu Buhari only did skeletal work since he resumed work last Monday. It was reported that the President’s workload was drastically scaled down to allow him get more rest.
The reports said Buhari barely four hours in his office since his return from a medical vacation in London. It was also gathered that the President has not attended any event outside the Presidential Villa since his return. But Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu said on the contrary, the President had a busy week.
He said Buhari had an engaging week devoted mostly to policy issues, not ceremonial events. Shehu states in Abuja on Sunday, March 19.
Shehu, however, refuted the claims, saying that “in the first week of his return, President Buhari walked his talk on his intense desire to pay back to Nigerians by way of keeping their trust and serving their interests. “His reply to the people for their support and trust is to work much harder for them.”
According to him, the President did not have a day off or even a light week at all throughout his week of resumption.
He added that, “I read those analyses and I believe they were mostly wrong.
What they don’t understand is that the President doesn’t follow official working hours because he is on duty all the time. “He has another office by his living room so he works from home when most civil servants have closed.”
