President Muhammadu Buhari
 
On the 7th of May, 2017, President Muhammadu Buhari - a former military dictator transmitted a letter to the National Assembly to officially transfer his political power to his deputy, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo as he embarked on an indefinite medical leave to London.
 
Today makes it 60 days that President Buhari has left the shores of this country without an official explanation about his state of health to Nigerians. The nature of Buhari's ailment remains unknown as the alternative media has alleged that the 74 year old is battling with Crohn's disease as well as cancer and the toll of old age.
 
There are rumours that Buhari is bed-ridden with his voice impaired thereby making him unfit to govern Nigeria. Some political hawks reportedly arranged with Buhari so send an audio message to Nigerians on the 25th of June, 2017 during the Eid al-Fitr celebration by the Muslims in Nigeria.
 
Buhari's audio message was delivered in Hausa language belonging to the dominant ethnic group thereby dividing Nigeria faster than the secessionist advocacies of the Biafra separatists and the coalition of Arewa Youth groups.
 
As the former soldier remains 'Missing in Action' for about two months due to health issues, his popularity has continued to dminish. Its not sure if he will run for office in the 2019 presidential election. Its also uncertain if Nigerians will vote for an elderly and sickly leader despite his integrity claims.
 
Tori News political correspondent, Osayimwen Osahon George has consistently condemned the secrecy Buhari's health is shrouded in as Nigerians deserve to know his well-being.
 
It remains unclear when the Fulani native will be returning to Nigeria as the poor masses lament on the 'long distance relationship' between Nigerians and their leader especially during a period of political, security and economic turbulence.
