Nigeria’s ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari has received a delegation of media aides at the Abuja House in London.
The delegation include the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant Media & Publicity Mallam Garba Shehu, Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina and the President’s Personal Assistant Digital/Online Media Lauretta Onochie.

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 learnt 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.”
The visit came on the heels of the Resume or Resign protest going on in Abuja. It still remains uncertain when the president will return.
