“I had a swollen knee and was unable to walk for days” – Abdulsalami addresses health concerns
Former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd) says he is now out of hospital after receiving treatment for a “knee” problem.
The 80-year-old made the clarification following reports that he suffered a partial stroke which caused him to seek medical attention abroad.
Abdulsalami said he had a “swollen knee” and was unable to walk for days in the last week of May.
“After initial care by my doctors, they advised that I should seek further expert care abroad. That was why I had to cancel my birthday programme.
“I was on admission for a brief period but I have now been discharged while doctors do a regular follow-up. I am much better. It was not an emergency and I was not rushed to any hospital.
“I appreciate the support, love and care that Nigerians have been showing since the story went on social media. I am grateful to all my friends and well-wishers,” TheCable quoted the retired general as saying on Monday.
