President Muhammadu Buhari has confirmed that he now feels okay and wishes to start coming back to Nigeria, but that this time, he has to obey his doctors.
The President, who received the minister of information, Lai Mohammed, members of the Presidential media team and Presidential advisers at the Abuja House in London said: “I’ve learnt to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.”
Buhari said in a lighter mood: “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than being obeyed.”
President Buhari said that he has been following events at home closely through the media, and commended Nigerian television stations, and the media generally, for keeping him informed.
Buhari thanked Nigerians, Africans and others across the world for their fervent prayers for his recovery, saying: “what we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent. It gave us a lot of latitude. I thank all those who are praying. May God reward them.”
President Buhari sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.
Those who were in the entourage to London on visit to President Buhari today, Saturday are information minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity,Mr Femi Adesina; Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu: Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media, Lauretta Onochie and Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
