Buhari has not succumbed to dementia, senility as alleged – Reuben Abati


Reuben Abati, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, says President Buhari is his real self and not the Jubrin of Sudan as alleged by many.

He was reacting to a recent encounter with the president during an interview on ARISE News.

Abati who attempted to clear some conspiracy theories about the President in an article on Tuesday said the President has not succumbed to dementia and senility as alleged and that his administration was not taken over by any cabal.

He claimed the conspiracy theories about the President flourished due to the absence of Buhari’s personal voice on issues.

“The man that our team sat with and interviewed didn’t sound like a Jibrin from Sudan”.

“He was alert, alive, informed, confident, relaxed, witty and capable of disarming humour. He was not the invalid or the senile old man that his critics say he is.

“He didn’t sound weak either. As the interview progressed, he had another function that he needed to attend, and we didn’t leave the Villa until about 11 pm.

“Less than 12 hours later, the same man, the following day was in Lagos to commission rail, maritime, and security projects.”

The President was interviewed by Arise TV team made up of Prince Nduka Obaigbena, Chairman of the Arise/ThisDay Media Group, owners of ThisDay newspaper and Arise TV; Olusegun Adeniyi, former Presidential spokesperson during the Yar’Ádua administration, who is currently Chairman of the ThisDay Newspaper Editorial Board; Ms Tundun Abiola, lawyer, daughter of the late Chief MKO Abiola, and Reuben Abati.
