ENUGU—FORMER Minister of Health, Professor A.B. C. Nwosu, yesterday, faulted the manner in which ailing President Umaru Yar’Adua was brought into the country from Saudi Arabia in the early hours of Wednesday.
He said Nigerians were tired of the game being played by the president’s wife, Turai and his aides in their bid to convince Nigerians that the president was still capable of discharging his official functions.

He said that the president’s wife and her boys had played on the intelligence of millions of Nigerians enough to the extent that the current game being orchestrated to make Nigerians believe that they were still in control had become too familiar to be taken seriously.

Reacting to the reported return of the president to the country, Prof. Nwosu who served under the Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime, said that the concealed return of the president was part of the games being played by his supporters with the aim of causing more confusion in the country.
