President Buhari Does Not Know His Real Age?

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said he thought he was 74 but was told he was 75.
Buhari spoke when the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammed Bello, led a delegation to pay him Christmas homage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

​Speaking, Buhari recalled the health challenge that kept him away from the country for months earlier in the year.

He said he had recovered well from the sickness because he obeyed his doctors who instructed him to be eating and sleeping well.

“I am very grateful (to you) for taking time out on a very important day to come out and spend it with us ​”, Punch quoted him as saying.​

“It has been a tumultuous year. I am thinking I am 75. I thought I was 74 but I was told I was 75.

“I have never been so sick, not even during the 30-month civil war that I was stumbling under farm of yams or cassava.

“But this sickness…I don’t know, but I came out better. All those who saw me before said I look much better when I came back.

“But I have explained it to the public that as a General, I used to give orders. But now, I take orders.

​”​ The doctors told me to feed my stomach and sleep for longer hours. That is why I am looking much better,”‎ he said.
