The president’s aide said this while fielding questions from Thisday. According to him, “Following the three months period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units. The renovation would not affect the effectiveness of Buhari’s work since the residence has an annex to the office and the president has been carrying out his duties from home since he resumed.
However, Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad had earlier explained through his twitter handle that the President will temporarily operate from his official residence also located in the villa.
Here’s what he tweeted: “Some renovations are ongoing at the office, his fully equipped office in his residence. He will be back to the main office after the works.”
The renovation, as it was gathered, was being done by Julius Berger, so, while they are at it, Buhari would operate from a rodents-free office within his residence.
This comes after Buhari spent more than 100 days in London having left Nigeria on May 7, transferring power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, but President Buhari arrived the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock, Abuja on Saturday, 19 August, 2017.
Hmm, what are they telling Nigerians? Could these rodents’ invasion be the hyenas and jackals that President Buhari’s wife, Aisha, once talked about?
