Minister of power breaks silence after slumping



Erstwhile Nigerian minister of power, Saleh Mamman has broken silence after he reportedly slumped.

In an interview with BBC Hausa on Thursday, the 63-year old refuted claims that he had slumped after being dismissed from office by Buhari.

“Even before this step was announced I was very unwell, because I did not even go to the office earlier this week.”

“So, yesterday (Wednesday) and today (Thursday) I also went back to the hospital for another round of check-up; and the doctor instructed that I needed some ‘rest’ so I remained at one place to rest,” he said.

“I found a serene and quiet environment to rest and take medication as recommended by the doctor. I didn’t stay at home because sympathisers are trooping to console me; this would prevent me from resting and convalescing on time.”

“But I was also not hospitalised, and I didn’t faint as reported.”
