Buhari works from home as rodents ravage president’s office


The Senior Special Assistant to the President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Shehu Garba, has said that the president’s office was ravaged by rodents during his medical trip which lasted over a hundred days in the United Kingdom.

I don’t even understand the sort of home trouble that is plaguing Aso Rock, wallahi. They don’t have doctors to treat the most important man in the land, we hear. They also can’t buy rat-trap or rat poison? The ones that mallams sell 4 for N100? And even if a rat infestation were truly the case, why would the president’s people make this known to the outside world? To the BBC??? Why will they not appease their ancestors so they can do right?

Garba, speaking to THISDAY, said: “Following the three months period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units,” he said, explaining that it was impossible for his boss to operate from the office in that condition.

Garba, however, said this would not affect the effectiveness of Buhari’s work since the residence has an annex to the office, adding that the president had been carrying out his duties from home since he resumed. However Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad explained through his twitter handle said that the President will temporarily operate from his official residence also located in the villa.
