Garba Shehu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, has issued a statement on General Abdulsalami Abubakar’s health.
Remember that Abdulsalami was reportedly transported out of Nigeria for medical treatment, according to some media sources.
The retired Army General was reported to have suffered a minor stroke before being airlifted to a hospital in the United Kingdom (UK).
Shehu verified Abubakar’s release from the hospital in a tweet on Monday, stating that there was no need to be concerned.
“Alhamdu Lillahi for Allah’s mercy.
“I just ended a visit to His Excellency Abdulsalami Abubakar, former Head of State.
“He is out of hospital in a London apartment and apparently in no serious condition.
“He was his jovial self, maintaining a keen interest in developments back at home in Nigeria. Please, no cause for alarm.”
Abdulsalami was the Head of State in 1999, during which he conducted an election that brought the democratically civilian government of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo to power.
