ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari's doctors have advised him to take things slowly as he recovers from an undisclosed illness, and there is no need to worry about his health, his spokesman said on Thursday.

Buhari did not attend a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, choosing to rest and work from home. That triggered speculation about his state of health and his ability to run Africa's biggest economy and most populous nation.
