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.”
He was sworn in as power minister on 21 August 2019.
On September 1 2021, Saleh was sacked by Buhari and replaced by Minister of State for Works and Housing Abubakar Aliyu.
