Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari will not be conducting official government business from the seat of government but from his home.
This is as a result of some extensive damage done to his office by some rodents during his over 100-days abroad for medical attention.
Presidential Spokes person, Garba Shehu told the media that the rodents have caused extensive damage to furniture and the air conditioning system because the room was not in use during Buhari’s long absence.
Quizzed on the kind of rodents that caused the damaged he said “I do not have that level of detail” but was optimistic that he will return to the office as soon it is refurbished.
He allayed the fears of many Nigerians that it is not strange for the president to work remotely if only it will not affect government business.
“These are also general works and it is not uncommon for Nigerian presidents to also work from the presidential villa. He has used the residential office for many years.”
“What is important is that the job gets done. Whether he does it from his bedroom or his sitting room or his anteroom — it does not matter. Let the job be done. And the job will be done.”
President Muhammadu Buhari returned home on Saturday after spending three months in Britain on medical leave.
The leave is his second since becoming president thus raising serious questions about is ability to lead the oil rich country.
