Buhari challenges reporter to wrestling bout, says ‘I’m very strong’
atmosphere at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Sunday as President Muhammadu Buhari returned to the country after a medical trip to London.
Addressing journalists at the airport, Buhari jokingly, challenged one of the correspondents, who asked him of his state of health, to a wrestling competition.
“You have seen me, you saw me when I was going, you can do the assessment by yourself,” he said.
“You can see me inspecting the guards of honour, if you want to wrestle me, you can do so, but you know I’m taller than you.”
He said he is resuming work stronger and more energetic.
The president, who was clad in a light brown kaftan with a cap to match, did not use the helicopter meant to transport him to the presidential villa, but rather embarked on road journey.
