Ex-head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar, has said he is recovering well from knee problems which led to his cancelling activities to mark his 80th birthday.

The retired general told TheCable on Monday that he only had issues with his knee which affected his mobility.

He said, “I 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.”
