The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III has warned Nigerians against politicising the health condition of President Buhari.
The monarch called on every citizen of Nigeria to pray for the recovery of the President.
The Alaafin also cautioned those mocking Buhari over his health challenge, saying it is not proper to mock the sick.
According to Vanguard, he said “I have been following with great interest though mixed feeling comments that have been generated on both social and conventional media on the state of health of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, General Muhammadu Buhari.
‘’Let me state very clearly and unambiguously that in African culture, it is not proper to speculate the death of the sick. In Yoruba culture in particular, it is an abomination not only to speculate but to wish a fellow mortal dead. Neither is it proper to mock the sick because only God determines the future of everybody.
“In the custom belief and tradition of the Yoruba, death is not age determined.
