President Muhammadu Buhari Abandons Aso Rock Office, Despite Multi-Million Naira Renovation, May Never Return

Emerging report reaching Post-Nigeria reveals that President Muhammadu Buhari, is yet to return to his office in the Presidential Villa, seven months after rats invaded the office.

It could be recalled that Buhari, who arrived the country on August 19, after spending over 100 days abroad, has been operating from an office located inside his official residence, and another one located inside the Presidential Banquet Hall.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had said the President’s office needed renovation, because of its devastation by rodents during his long period of absence.

“Following the three-month period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units”, he had said, explaining that it was impossible for the President to operate from the office in that condition.

However, 56 days after the President’s return to the country, he has yet to resume in his office.

The President has been hosting meetings and other events in the two venues.

This week alone, he held separate meetings with some State Governors, and the nation’s Security Chiefs, at the venues.

When contacted on Friday, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said where Buhari has been operating from are also offices.

Adesina said the most important thing is that the President is working.

The Presidential Spokesman was however, silent on when Buhari will resume in his main office.

“Office na office. He (the President) uses one now, and the work goes on”, he simply said.
