Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is battling what appears to be Alzheimer's disease.

According to an exclusive report from SIGNAL

The development, which has greatly impaired the President’s ability to remember serious matters of governance, has strengthened the takeover of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa by a cabal under the reins of Mamman Daura.

According to a top-level source who disclosed the details to SIGNAL, a recent meeting with President Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa showed how much the illness may have worsened in the last few months with the President needing a reminder over and over again to keep up with the details of an ongoing conversation.
The development is said to have created a situation where the President is technically no longer in control of serious governance decisions. According to the source who did not want to be named, Mamman Daura, a close confidant of the President has now assumed overwhelming control of the Buhari administration taking advantage of the President’s ailment.
“It is a really serious situation. It is looking like the President has now been caged and hijacked. He is not in control. Daura is the one handling most of the key issues. He is the one who manages the entire decision making process from who is listed and presented to the President for appointments, interpretation of key policy decisions and their implications to the President, and even who is targeted or penciled down for arrests or prosecution. It’s unbelievably shocking”, the source said.
The unfolding development corroborates an earlier report by SIGNAL in June 2016 which revealed details about how wife of the President Mrs. Aisha Buhari was being sidelined by the Daura cabal which had hijacked President Buhari’s government.
According to medical experts, in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, a person may function independently. He or she may still drive, work and be part of social activities. Despite this, the person may feel as if he or she is having memory lapses, such as forgetting familiar words or the location of everyday objects.
Friends, family or neighbors begin to notice difficulties. During a detailed medical interview, doctors may be able to detect problems in memory or concentration. Common difficulties include:
In another shocking development, President Buhari on a live television interview with Al Jazeera forgot the full meaning of Nigeria’s electoral body the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), switching ‘Nigeria’ with ‘National’.

Similarly, in a meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House, President Buhari forgot the full meaning of APC, the acronym of his All Progressives Congress (APC) ruling party. This time, Buhari omitted the word ‘progressives’, adding ‘Nigeria’ and ‘people’ into the mix and describing his party as the All Nigeria Peoples Congress.
