Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, today, visited the former Nigerian Vice-President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme in a London hospital where he is being treated. Boss Mustapha, who was said to have been in London for a different purpose before the arrival of the ailing second Republic Vice President, seized the opportunity to convey President Muhammadu Buhari’s get-well-soon greeting. A statement by the senior special assistant to the President on media and publicity, Malam Garba Shehu today, Monday, said that the SGF was received by Dr. Ekwuene’s wife, Mrs. Helen Ekwueme on behalf of the family.Boss Mustapha was quoted as telling the Ekwueme family that President Buhari and all Nigerians are praying for the speedy recovery of the elder statesman, believing that the doctors are doing their best. Dr. Ekwueme was rushed to the London hospital a couple of days ago in what was described as a critical condition in an air ambulance. His journey and hospitalisation in London followed a directive by President Buhari that he should be flown overseas for serious medical attention.
