President Muhammadu Buhari ate lunch in London on Sunday with visiting governors and leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the Presidency revealed last night.
Buhari has been away from Nigeria for over two months on his latest medical vacation.
Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), quoted Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State as disclosing during a telephone conversation following the meeting the President was very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.
According to Adesina in the statement, “The governor said the party delegation spent more than an hour with President Buhari over lunch, and it was very clear from the discussions that he followed developments at home very closely.
“He said the President was delighted to receive the delegation and asked each governor about affairs in his state. He also asked the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, about the state of the railways.
“When asked to react to all the negative things being said about him, the President just laughed, describing such negative reports as lies. Governor Okorocha said President Buhari was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies. He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.
“According to the governor, Nigerians don’t have to worry at all, adding that President Buhari will be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light.”
Adesina further quoted Governor Okorocha as saying: “By our visit to London today, the merchants of lies have been put out of business and Nigerians will not buy the garbage they have been selling. All those who look up to fake news can find better use for their time.”
The statement identified governors Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna; Yahaya Bello of Kogi; and APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, as others in the delegation.
