The Buhari We Saw in London – Governors

Ebonyi State Governor Dave Umahi, one of the Governors, who visited President Muhammadu Buhari in London on Tuesday, has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery as a miracle saying he was in cheerful spirit.
According to the Governor, the delegation of seven Nigerian Governors met the President recuperating well.
Apart from Umahi, others Governors in the entourage are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom); Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara); Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo); Samuel Ortom (Benue); Umar Ganduje (Kano); and Kashim Shettima (Borno).
Six of the Governors were chosen based on the six geo-political zones in the country while the governor of Zamfara State was picked because of his position as the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum.
Umahi said: “We met a cheerful President whose level of recovery is a miracle. We know he will soon return home as soon as his doctors certify him to do so. What he’s treating is not mere malaria that we can say he will return today or tomorrow.
“However, we are happy and we thank God for what we saw. It is contrary to the pictures people are painting on the social media. The President we saw is recuperating well and we are happy for that.
“It is even better that, we as members of the opposition party, are among the entourage. Nigerians should continue to pray for the President.“
On whether the President should be expected back in the country soon, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governor said the acting president was doing a good job and the President should return when his doctors certify him well enough.
“We don’t need to panic because we have a hardworking acting President who is doing a fantastic job. All we need to do as Nigerians is to continue to pray for the President.”
Also Kano State Governor, Ganduje expressed delight over President Buhari’s better health condition.
He said:“From what we are hearing, we see that Mr President is in a much better condition. We were very happy to see him. He came out personally to shake hands with us and went back and sat down. The Chairman of the Governors’ forum made a brief speech and he (President Buhari) also responded and cracked jokes.
“So I believe Mr President will soon recover fully and come back to Nigeria.”
Oyo State Governor, Ajimobi wrote on his Twitter handle and Facebook page that the President received him and his colleagues warmly.
“My counterparts, the Governor’s Forum delegation and I were warmly received by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari in London, United Kingdom,” he wrote.
