The president’s cousin urges Nigerians to focus on the performance of Buhari and not his age Malam Adnan Na-Habu, a cousin to President Muhammadu Buhari and the official spokesman for the family has attributed the president’s current health challenges to old age. Na-Habu dismissed the concern that President Buhari’s health condition may render him incapable of running the affairs of the country.

He told the Sun in an interview published on Thursday, May 4, that the health challenges of the President had to do with old age and not any sickness. He said: “I know some Nigerians especially the critics of this administration have been using age and sickness to propagate the idea that Buhari should not run this country now and beyond 2019.

”I don’t think there is a problem with his health as I said earlier. You see there is a difference between sickness and being aged. When someone is aged we believe that, he cannot act the way you and I can act because of the age. The president’s cousin, however, urged Nigerians to focus on the performance of Buhari and not his age, adding that in Africa, there are leaders that are far older than him, and they are still in power, managing their country successfully.”

“So being aged is not a deformity. Instead, the person will be given more wisdom to reason. I believe that most of the statements are coming from his opponents. It is purely politics. Obviously, by 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari has chance to continue, provided he chooses to re-contest the presidency.” Adnan Na-Habu insisted that Buhari’s health was not a hindrance to governance.
