Nigeria President -Buhari Insists His Doctors Will Decide His Return Date

Ailing President Muhammadu Buhari again on Saturday said only his doctors would decide when he would return to Nigeria.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke at the Abuja House, London, United Kingdom, when he received members of his media team led by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Buhari who has been receiving medical attention in the British capital since May 7 was reported to have told the team that visited him that there is tremendous improvement in his health and that indeed, he wished to return home,

“I have learnt to obey my doctor’s orders rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge,” the President was quoted as saying.

Mohammed was said to have led the team that included Adesina; Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu; Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media, Lauretta Onochie; and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa,

According to Adesina, when the team expressed delight at the much improved health of the President, Buhari reportedly said, “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I have now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”

On how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, Buhari was reported to have said he followed events at home closely.

He was said to have lauded 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 round the world, the President reportedly 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 latitude. I thank all those who are praying. May God reward them.”

Adesina said the President sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.

  1. Please sir listen to your doctors orders completely. The Lord will heal you fully in Jesus name Amen. You have a good heart and the Lord sees that. You have done the right thing by making Osibajo the acting president and he is doing a great job so don't worry about anything. Don't mind all the disractors. God bless Nigeria

    1. I am sure the doctor is also ordering you to resign so that you can face your health challenges squarely.

  2. Baba is looking so pale and thin, he really needs to step down and rest. Get well soon baba.

  3. I wish PMB well but if he is not feeling any better then he needs to resign. Why is it so difficult? Why have we in Nigeria decided to put Quota system first above country first? There is a capable and intelligent Vice President who can do the job. APC needs to get their act together and ask PMB to resign. Put country first!!

  4. Resign mr man. To rule na by force

  5. Just imagine this ... I don't even blame him, when some people are so blinded with the love for him that they fail to know the right or wrong things he's doing ... You look healthy. Come back already and do your job. Stop wasting tax payers over there. Stop allowing your staff troop in and out of London like it's not the supposed money we don't have that they are using ...

  6. My friend better resign and face ur health... and allow this country move on. What is all this.?

  7. Ruwan su! All I know is they must get tired of this wasan yara someday.

  8. They should allow this man rest abeg. Power is tooo greedy. Isnt there a law in the constitution for this?

  9. What do you call this kind of Government?Ruling by Proxy? This is unprecedented...

  10. No bi una vote for am? Had it been he didn't win, you people would have been saying "saviour that was never allowed to rule...somebody like me knew he will bring Nigeria back to square one, that was why i strongly campaigned against him..

    1. Oh no, you don't want to say this in the open as they will list the achievement of controlling corruption that is still ongoing. They boast about collecting loots from corrupt past leaders but we are still trying to borrow funds to fund the government. How logic? They brought a man who everyone knew will set us back a 100yrs and they are trying to find a way to impose him come 2019. And the gullible ones applaud little achievement. I wonder what would be the situation of things if goodluck had been president, fell in and spent over a 100 days in London. I'm sure there would have been massive campaign and shut downs to remove him immediately..
      Everytime we live our life trying not to upset the few who are power hungry and would kill if their ambitions aren't actualized

    2. Campaign ke??? They would have started by killing the igbos and Southerners in the north.
