I'm obeying doctors' orders, says Buhari

The demystification of General Buhari

Any one or group waiting for a definite time that President Muhammadu Buhari will return from his medical vacation overseas will be disappointed by the latest feedback from the ailing leader. Later, the visiting team issues a statement below claiming the President said he was Ok, but wouldn't say when he will return to duty until his doctors determine he was fit enough.

On Kenya's request for Nigeria's support for the candidature of Ambassador Amina Mohammed, Kenya's Foreign Minister, who is vying for the AUC chairmanship, President Buhari said Nigeria will hold robust consultations with other African leaders on the need for strong and capable leadership that will respond to the current challenges facing the continent.

A special adviser says the president told visitors Saturday in London that "I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge". "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed". Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is in charge of Nigeria, which is struggling amid its worst economic slump in about 30 years. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed".

With the Minister were the presidential media team, and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters; Mr Adesina; Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, and Lauretta Onochie, Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media.

When asked about how he felt about the theories about his health, President Buhari who said he has followed events in the country in his absence was "amused", according to the statement. It gave us a lot of latitude.

The WHISTLER recalls that President Buhari left Nigeria since May 7 for medical consultation in London and is believed to be gearing up to return to the country anytime soon. "May God reward them", he said.
