I Am Waiting For My Doctors To Give Me The Green Light To Travel – President Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken from London, letting every Nigerian know he is okay and will soon be in the country.
Speaking with the media team who came to London to see him, Mr. President said he is only awaiting orders from his Doctors to travel, once he gets the green light, he will come back to Nigeria.
“I’ve learnt to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge,” Buhari told his media team who had gone to the United Kingdom to see him.
The delegation, led by Information and Culture Minister Lai Mohammed, also comprised the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina; the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu; Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media, Lauretta Onochie; and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
“When the team expressed delight at the much improved health of the President, he retorted, ‘I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
When told that prayers were going on fervently for him, not only in Nigeria, but all over Africa, and round the world, he was quoted as saying: “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.”
President Buhari, the statement said, sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.
