Buhari Set To Work From Home Due To Presidential Office Damaged By Rodents
President Muhammadu Buhari who returned to the country on August 19 after a 103 days extended medical vacation is reported to carry out presidential duties from home for an unstipulated period of time as renovations are ongoing at the office.
An undisclosed presidency source had revealed on Monday, August 21, 2017, that the President would be working from home after resuming his official duties.
In a news report with This Day, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba said:
“Following the three months period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units.”
This was later confirmed by the president’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, who posted on twitter:
“Some renovations are ongoing at the office. He’s a fully equipped office in his residence, he’ll be back to the main office after the works.”
Shehu Garba asserted that the arrangement won’t affect the president’s duties since the residence has an annex to the office.
He however said the maintenance company has been asked to speed up its work.
