AN URGENT HUMANITARIAN APPEAL TO NIGERIANS LIVING IN THE UNITED KINGDOM
By Mr. Brian Hearrington, FRCS
and Dr. Cutter Cancerman, FRCP
During our last biweekly visit to His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, APC, CNPP, GCFR, we were dismayed, disappointed, and dejected when we learnt that your nightly demonstrations forced our patient to flee to Nigeria. This is unconscionable to say the least. How would you feel if your parents are deprived of essential medical care that would be life-saving? Presidents are humans and deserve privacy. Nigeria paying for Buhari’s treatment does not entitle you to any details of his undisclosed illness.
Muhammadu Buhari is not a British citizen. That every Briton knows the medical history of every member of the Royal Family and the Prime Minister is irrelevant. They are British citizens. Britain did not get to this stage in 56 years. Exercise patience, in two to three hundred years, Nigeria will get there.
We humbly implore you to relent and permit your President to return for his biweekly injections. The injections in his possession are spoilt because of the epileptic power supply in Nigeria and we doubt that Nigerian doctors are familiar with the protocol. Persons with his undisclosed illness are advised to stay at least 100 yards from rats. We were extremely alarmed to learn that he is living with rats who have taken over his office and residence.
Nigerians are kind and loving people, and we hope that you will understand that your President cannot survive more than a few months in Nigeria. Unless you wish him dead, which is un-Nigerian.
Thank you in anticipation of your full understanding and cooperation.
