Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, has revealed that the president’s office was ravaged by rodents during his medical trip to London.
Fielding questions from Thisday, Garba said, “Following the three months period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units.”
He further explained that it was impossible for his boss to operate from the office in that condition.
The President’s aide said that the renovation would not affect the effectiveness of Buhari’s work since the residence has an annex to the office, adding that the president had been carrying out his duties from home since he resumed.
Meanwhile, Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad has earlier explained through his twitter handle that the President will temporarily operate from his official residence also located in the villa.
