Those wishing President Muhamamdu Buhari dead are incurable looters, that is according to the president’s Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Sen. Babafemi Ojudu.

He made the assertion while speaking with journalists in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital after hosting leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the 16 local government areas of the state.

Ojudu assured Nigerians that the president would soon be back from his medical vacation to perform the functions of his office.

The presidential aide said the attitude of those wishing the president dead negates basic African tradition and culture which forbids wishing fellow human beings dead.

He emphasised that it was only looters of the nation’s treasury who are afraid of being brought to justice.

“Our President is honest, patriotic, committed and passionate that this country must be great. No one can accuse the President of fraud, corruption and stealing in government.

“He is just on a holiday and he can use the opportunity to check the state of his health. Even at my own age, I do visit my doctors to check myself, my blood pressure, my sugar level and all the rest

“I want to assure concerned Nigerians who really love the President that he will soon be back. It is only those who have stolen our money and kept it away that are wishing him dead.

“The President will soon be back and by God’s grace, he will not die as some mischievous people wish”, he said.

According to him, there was no vacuum in governance by the President’s physical absence as he had duly transmitted powers to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in line with the dictates of the Constitution.

The presidential aide explained that President Buhari has so far given the country exemplary leadership.
