The President had on Thursday, January 19, left Nigeria for London, United Kingdom, for what the Presidency described as “a short leave” that would see him do medical check ups.
He is expected to resume work on February 6, 2017.
However, an online report had recently claimed that the President was seriously ill and in a London hospital where he was receiving medical attention. But the Presidency said there was no truth in the report, stating that the President was well.
This has led to several calls being made by Nigerians that the President should address the citizens from the UK to be assured of his fitness.
The Nigeria Labour Congress had also intensified Nigerians’ calls that the President should speak to the citizens from the UK.
But the Presidency had insisted that Buhari could not be compelled to speak.
Subsequently, in a bid to assure Nigerians that the President was hale and hearty, his PA on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, on Friday evening tweeted a photo of Amosun meeting with the President.
He posted the photo and wrote, “Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State visited President Buhari this evening in London.”
I guess Nigerians should just believe the photo and continue to pray for their President.
