Against the backdrop of several speculations surrounding the actual state of health of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, his cousin, Zubaru Ali, has been quoted by Al-jazeera television station as saying the President is able to walk, talk and eat.

The Doha, Qatar-based television station said it travelled to Katsina State to track down members of Yar’Adua’s family in an effort to find out the true state of health of the ailing head of state.
Ali said he was given permission to meet with the ailing president because he is his first cousin and family spokesperson.
He added that Yar’Adua thanked them for their prayers.

The President has been back in Nigeria for seven days after spending more than three months receiving medical treatment at a Saudi Arabian hospital.
However, he has not been seen or heard in public since his return on February 24, fuelling speculation that he is incapable of carrying out his job.

His silence has led to reports that he is on a life support machine.
There is also speculation that the president’s aides and first family are holding him hostage in the presidential villa until they can figure out how to retain influence and power in the event of his exit.
Yar’Adua left Nigeria on November 23, 2009 to receive treatment for pericarditis, an inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart.

    If Nigerian president is okay according to what his family members are saying, let him come to the public and every Nigerians will see and be convince that it is a reality simple while is he hiding himself.

  4. What is the difference? whether he walks, talks or eat. Ok if he is as healthy as his cousin claims, then let him make a public appearance. All of u haters of light, enemies of progress will all be paralysed soon if u dont stop leading Nigeria and Nigerians astray. No mountain is too high or big for God to crush. Watch out and see the wrath of God descend on u all and ur family……FOOLS THINKING THEY ARE WISE.

  5. DO YOU PEOPLE THINK THAT GOD SLEEPS? IF THIS MAN IS ALIFE HE SHOULD COME ON TV. OR ALLOW HIS SUBORDINATE TO SEE HIM ONE ON ONE. STOP THIS PLAY BECAUSE GOD CAN COME DOWN BECAUSE OF THIS GAME YOU ARE PLAYING.

    Anybody is free to express his opinion. If lies travels for a thousand years, truth will catch up in a day. It reminds one of a popular fable about a farmer that went to farm and planted 20 heaps of tuber yam but came back home and said he planted 40. When he finish eating the 20 truth, he is one that will equally eat the 20 false tubers.
