Reliable reports reaching FNN states that the All Progressive Congress(APC) Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari had been diagnosed of Amnesia and partial Memory loss since 1981.
This is coming on the wake of APC presidential campaign in Owerri, where to the surprise of thousands of supporters, spectators and millions of viewers across the Nation, the presidential candidate introduced his running mate and vice-president hopeful as “His Excellency Prof. Yemi Osunbade” as opposed to Prof. Yemi Osibanjo.
According to the reports from the Military, which was dragged to go through Gen. Buhari’s records as a result of his Certificate saga, This medical condition could explain why Buhari do not know the whereabout of his Original academic documents, as they are not in procession of any of his Original documents.
We cannot categorically state the current level of Buhari’s memory loss condition, but with the number of years this diagnosis have been made and with no evidence of proper medical attention, we cannot help but say this is probably the reason why the General haven’t been able to give a personal account of the coup that brought him to power, his administration or the Coup that took power from him, in form of autobiography or memoirs has done by some other leaders in the country.
This could also be the reason why The people’s General haven’t tried to further his education like some of his colleagues and former Generals did.
It is also worthy of note that Gen. Buhari seem to have also forgotten his utterances, statements and promises in recent past presidential elections he had contested.
At this juncture, it is not out of place to assume that President Goodluck Jonathan, the Commander in chief of the armed forces was very much informed on Gen. Buhari’s memory loss condition, when he stated that Buhari cannot remember his phone number.
