President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he is okay but has to obey his doctors’ orders in London.
Buhari had left Nigeria on May 7th to meet up follow up the consultation with his doctors in the United Kingdom.
Stressing that there is a tremendous improvement in his health, he said that he really wished to return home.
He spoke while receiving the presidential media team, and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, at Abuja House, London, on Saturday.
The team was led by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, accompanied by Mr. Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity; Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, and Lauretta Onochie, Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media.
Buhari, in a statement issued by Adesina, said “But I’ve learned to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.”
When the team expressed delight at the much-improved health of the President, he retorted: “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learned to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
On how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, an amused President Buhari said he followed events at home closely, lauding Nigerian television stations, and the media generally, for keeping him informed.
When told that prayers were going on fervently for him, not only in Nigeria, but all over Africa, and around the world, a delighted President said: “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 latitudes. I thank all those who are praying. May God reward them.”
President Buhari, the statement said, sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
