Ex-chief of Army staff Ishaya Baimaiyi has claimed that some people are making gains from President Muhammadu Buhari’s current sickness.

According to the report, Bamaiyi also said that ‘irresponsible’ people are playing politics with Buhari’s health.

“It’s normal for any human being to fall sick. He took all necessary constitutional steps before he left the country.

“Yes, I agree there are problems. I think people who are really close to the president are benefiting from his health problems.

“They are the ones causing problem for him. There’s no reason whatsoever why they should not talk about the president’s health. If the president feels he can’t continue, he will be the one to tell you.

“I know Mr President very well enough because I worked under him directly. I know him to be respectful and straight forward.

“If he knows he won’t be able to continue, he would have said so. We shouldn’t play politics with the president health. It doesn’t portray us as responsible people,” he said.

NAIJ.com had reported earlier that President Buhari has sent his greetings to Nigerians informing them that he would soon be home from London.

The president said this when he received a delegation from his government led by Lai Mohammed, the information and culture minister.

The others on the delegation include Femi Adesina, Garba Shehu, Lauretta Onochie and Abike Dabiri.

The president however said his return to Nigeria is dependent on his doctors in London.
