The minister also called on Nigerians to pray for Buhari and not to make wrong insinuations about his health.
Adewole also said that there is no cause for alarm, adding that Nigerians should respect Buhari’s choice to go abroad for treatment.
According to Daily Post, he said “One thing we
must realise is that health is a complex issue.
There’s what we call patient-doctor relationship; there is also a bond between the patient and the doctor and these are things we can’t play with.
“I used to have patients in Ibadan and they still call me, and say ‘we will like to see you’. Then I have to say no to them because I’m no longer available and ask, ‘why can’t you see somebody else?’ But many of them are reluctant to do so. That’s the complex thing about health.
“We should give him (Buhari) that choice. What we really wish is for Mr. President to be well and hearty.
“However, this is also a complex country, so I am not too happy about some of the insinuations, because we should pray for our leaders. We should continue to pray for him. There is no cause for alarm.
“He (Buhari) came back (referring to the previous medical vacation) and told us that he was ill and that he was treated. When we have that type of leader, I think we can go to sleep.”
Recently, there have been several unconfirmed reports saying that President Buhari is dead.
