“The president has an infection in his left
ear, otherwise called Meniere Disease, a

hearing impairment and routinely complains of severe pains and unusual
sounds from that ear, those familiar with his
condition told Premium Times.
Mr. Buhari, who clocked 73 last December, was said to have confirmed it to some
dignitaries who visited him in the past days, explaining to some of them that that was
why he was unable to visit Lagos and Rivers as scheduled. He was also said to have told some of his guests that he was struggling to give his failing health a major
attention. He is currently being treated by his personal physician and other experts

Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan as well as
some clergymen on Friday. Presidential spokespersons could not be reached to
comment for this story on Friday night.
