The Presidency has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari, who resumed duties Monday after a 103-day medical vacation abroad, will operate from his official residence until the completion of the renovation of his office, which was damaged by rodents.
According to the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Shehu Garba, while speaking with THISDAY, the president’s office needed renovation because of its devastation by rodents during the president’s long period of absence.
The reason given for the development was ongoing “renovations” in the president’s office.
“Following the three months period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units,” he was quoted to have said.
Shehu said the maintenance company had been asked to speed up its pace of work. While they are at it, Buhari would operate from a rodents-free office within his residence.
