I was shocked at the state I met President Buhari in London – Okorocha

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has described as false, the speculation that President Muhammad Buhari is critically ill and on life support.

Mr. Okorocha, who is also APC Governors Forum Chairman was part of some APC governors and chieftains who visited President Buhari at the Abuja house in London on Sunday.

“Before I left Nigeria, there was a lot of speculations that the president is on life support, coming from different angles and this left most Nigerians confused.

“To my greatest shock, I arrived London with the party chairman, Governor of Kaduna, Kogi, Nassarawa, minister of transport and we saw a man that was full of humour as usual and I was wondering where people were getting what they are talking about,” Mr. Okorocha said in an interview with Channels Television on Tuesday.

Mr. Okorocha said President Buhari is in good health and is not on life support.

“He is not even in the hospital,” he added.

“I was thinking I was going to see him in the hospital, but he was just at home relaxing and I think the doctors must have insisted that he get some rest.

“When I made inquiries on why he is not yet back home, all I get was that He is just taking some vitamins to increase his appetite.

“He is in good spirit and I think the prayers of Nigerians have worked to a great extent and he is coming back in full force.”

A statement by the presidency, which provided a photograph, gave the names of those who met with the president to include Mr. Okorocha, as well as Governors Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa, Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna, Yahaya Bello of Kogi, and the APC National Chairman, John Oyegun.

Mr. Buhari has spent 79 days in London on medical vacation for a yet to be disclosed ailment.

The recent trip came about two months after the president returned to Nigeria from an earlier trip to London, where he also spent about 50 days.

Apart from the recent trip by Mr. Okorocha and other APC leaders, the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, also recently visited Mr. Buhari in the British capital.

Mr. Osinbajo, after the visit, said the president was recuperating fast and would return soon.

The presidency also announced on Tuesday that six other governors would visit the president in London on Wednesday.

In his interview on Channels TV on Tuesday, Mr. Okorocha said Nigerians should be more concerned about the president’s next actions after his return.

“Nigerians should be talking about what would be his next line of action when he returns and what we are to expect when he arrives,” he said.

  • BABUYANMA

    Buhari is using Nigeria to pay his medical bills?. After we got rid of the Useless Jonathan?

    • Holy truth

      Whose money would he have used if not Nigerian money? Ghanaian money or Togolese”s money? Abeeeeg talk another thing. He is d sitting president, he is entitled to it. U 4 make better comment sha, dis ur comment is more kindergarten’s one.

      • BABUYANMA

        He should use his salary, savings and support from his family and friend, not our money. DUMMY!

        • Holy truth

          Still sounded like a like a baby in creche.

          • BABUYANMA

            He is spending 100,000 pounds a week. Do you know how many Nigerians lives that will safe?. DUMMY

    • Dawood

      BUHARI got rid of Jonathan, and prevented Boko Haram from killing your black ass. Be grateful.

      • BABUYANMA

        He should spend his own money just like you and I.

        • Al

          Babuyi abeg Go sleep

          • BABUYANMA

            You think Buhari should be spending 100,000 pounds per week on his health care?. Seriously?. My people are LOST

      • Alhaji

        But Buhari created Boko Haram and they installed him. He borrowed $2.2billion from the World Bank to compensate them. Did he not say Jonathan was killing northern muslim when Jona was curbing his boys, or Boko Haram? or were you in Saudi then?

  • M-olaniyi Odebode

    Buhari has lost a lot of weight. Nigerians should patiently allow him enough time to fully recover before returning home.

    • Alhaji

      How about the airplane that is accruing 5000 pounds everyday? Can’t that plane be brought home and go back when he is ready to come to Nigeria? London to Nigeria is about six hours. The plane will never consume up 5000 pounds of fuel from London to Nigeria.

      • M-olaniyi Odebode

        You are absolutely right. Despite our state of economy we are wasteful as we have always been. And had the earlier Nigerian governments (civilian and military) upgraded the country,s health facility to the desirable level, Buhari would have no business going to a London hospital for treatment. Alhaji, thanks for your patriotic observation. It shows that Nigerians still care about the country.

        • Alhaji

          You are blessed

          • M-olaniyi Odebode

            God bless you too, real good.

      • okenwa

        100 days of parking the jet in london is 500 000pounds multiply by tHe exchange rate. Chai

        • Alhaji

          Yes, you have 21st brain unlike northerners and some southerners who have BC’s by supporting Buhari for taking Nigeria backward. I want his supporters to tell Nigerians any positive things Buhari has contributed to Nigeria’s progress.

    • Kallah Bature

      Yes,the Presidency should ignore insincere rubble rousers like Fayose, FFK and there online collaborator SR, and give the honest/sincere President adequate time to rest before he comes back to continue his relentless fight against corruption.

    • AryLoyds

      Did they tell you that he is sick

      • M-olaniyi Odebode

        No, they didn’t. Buhari has been in London all this while for sight-seeing.

        • Netanyahu

          Didn’t femi adesina shamelessly tell us that buhari was in London hale and hearty resting? When did he become sick?

    • Lanre

      Thank you for the sarcasm.

      • M-olaniyi Odebode

        No my brother, it is no sarcasm. I genuinely wish and pray that Buhari will fully recover and return home alive.

        • vince

          Buhari should simply resign . he is being ridiculously mischievous hanging on to power and destroying lives and businesses . who will invest here to rescue over 28m jobless Nigerians if you can not articulate clearly who is in charge and the policy direction of the govt. Any reasonable person wishing this charade to continue is sick and hateful of the progress and prosperity of Nigeria. Or has ghost working in Nigeria being turned official . let us be reasonable in our contributions and wishes for the nation . because I know for sure that no one is indispensable and should we hear that buhari or any one is dead today , just look at your watch , it does not stop it from moving. So think less of unreasonable politics but rather the future of a country being tied down by one man.

        • Lanre

          Interesting. Buhari is not patriotic and does not care about Nigeria. A leader who cares will insist on treating himself in Nigeria. How much is it costing to treat him? Let us say $1b. Are you saying Nigeria cannot afford $1b to treat Buhari in Nigeria and another one billion dollars to build the best hospital in the world that will treat the ailment that took Yar’adua away and the one for which Buhari is in London? Nigerian rulers are rogues and thieves. Buhari is in London for counter-intelligence work. He is monitoring some people and feigning this ailment to gather information. Have a nice day.

  • AFRICANER

    He must be in British Custody for killing so many Nigerians, then?

    Why should you believe this Yamiri governor now?

  • Zygote

    You were shocked when you saw him? Then let him come home, it is been 80 days since he left. cant he take his vitamins at home or the drugs dont work in Nigeria?

    • AFRICANER

      That’s the conundrum!

      They have a catch 22 situation; if they claim he is well, they have a problem of explaining why he doesn’t come home or address the country, or even appear in a goddamn video; if they say he is too sick or dead, they can’t explain why he doesn’t resign.

      They are not even trying to use some wit and imagination; they are boldly disrespecting Nigerians, and basically saying, what can you do? If Nigerians weren’t conquered people by these Chadians and Nigeriens, Nomads and what not, do you think they can be doing this with impunity? This man has never interacted with Nigerians, he flunked his WASC/WAEC, he avoided the debates during the elections of 2015, he killed many shias, killed many Igbos, committed a coup d’etat against a democratically elected government of Shagari, suspended Habeas Corpus, still hold many religious leaders incommunicado, disobeying court orders, he forged his INEC qualifications, more than likely perjured himself, even complicit in Fela’s demise; yet he is seeking love!

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        I couldn’t have put it better. God bless you.

    • Lanre

      Thank you. We Southerners never learn. Yesterday it was Anenih, today it is Okorocha. My comments below:
      I always knew Buhari was playing a game. In 1983, when Shagari was about to be overthrown, Generals Jalo and Wushishi told Shehu Shagari that the GOC in Jos was involved in the coup. Word was sent to Buhari, who Shagari trusted. Buhari demurred, denying any involvement. By the end of that year, Sani Abacha was announcing 41 Year Old Muhammudu Buhari as the new Head of State. Muhammudu Buhari has his eyes on some people in Nigeria. He does not mind spending Niger Delta oil money (that he has been spending since 1978 as Minister of Petroleum) on this venture. In the meantime, another useless southerner, igbo Okorocha has to be the lick spittle that announces how stoopid the rest of us are.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Alhaji Okorocha, keep your shock to yourself and stop sounding as if Buhari being alive (in whatever state he is) constitutes an achievement. Having turned Buhari into a relic that people are travelling to a museum to view, it is high time he died and spared us the circus surrounding his existence.

    • The prophet

      Go and kill him. Buhari may even outlive you.

      • band olu

        I said d same thing to him day b4 yesterday, he’s been all over d place spewing rubbish & hate, i’m sure when PMB returns hale & hearty his likes will b in shock…

        • The prophet

          he may jump into lagoon or hug transformer.

        • Ali Mubi

          Yes and may even die of great shock.

      • okenwa

        Tell buhari to show face naah.

  • NoSpinEd

    PT, your heading was surprisingly quite misleading. It serves no useful purpose other than political posturing to deny the long-suffering Nigerian well wishers and detractors alike, the diagnoses of their duly elected President”s ailment. In contrast, when the aging American Senator McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer, in the spirit of transparency, it was immediately announced to the world. I am persuaded that that would have been the case even if it was the President of the United States.

    • The prophet

      Bros the politic and the orientation of the USA is different from here in Nigeria. In a country where for political sentiment a governor till today still affirms that no chibok girls were kidnapped. Within 2 weeks of Buhari first time of traveling to London for treatment, the association of haters announced and broadcast his obituary every where on social media. Our society is where enemies celebrate and make you misfortune a lyrics.

      • okenwa

        Those news about buhari’s health whether rummor or real comes from buhari’s handlers.

  • The prophet

    We are waiting for the pictures from Fayose, the grand patron of haters and bad losers, that would show us president Buhari on life support in ICU. The day Buhari will arrive this country to continue his good work many haters, bad losers and looters will hang themselves or jump into the lagoon.

    • vince

      You are a sick man . go and check yourself urgently , your faculty has gone to the dogs. Are you truly alive or are you writing from the grave? You think from your anus , you are idiotic . Or you think by attaching prophet to your miserable name that it will make you relevant . you are sucking sick.

  • Al

    It is a nature to be sick even if it’s not often. But there’s individual difference to body response to sickness -mild, harsh and seriously terrible depending how often one fall sick even if it is headache. If you don’t fall sick for a while (some pple even ten years or even more) you fall sick then your body system response can be harsh and terrible even if it minor sickness. I believe buhari’s case should be different, may Almighty God give him as well our other leaders good hearth and strength to steer the leadership

  • AFRICANER

    I ask the average northerner or Muslim, to check his or herself now, find out if you are really a nice person:

    WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF JONATHAN OR ANY OTHER CHRISTIAN, OR SOUTHERN PRESIDENT DOES WHAT BUHARI IS DOING NOW?

    Answer honestly to yourself.

    • The prophet

      what did he do? I am not a northerner but a Nigerian.

      • Frank Bassey

        He did nothing, non-Northerner.

    • Four

      The irony is even Buhari asked for late YarAdua’s resignation when he was sick! Of course if it was a Southern Christian we will all call for his resignation! That, my brother, is called HUMAN NATURE!

    • Abdulmojeed Nojeemdeen

      What made your so called healthy Jonathan different from a sick Jonathan. A president who co presided with four others,mama peace,madam okonjo, anty diezani and col.dazuki,but mama peace being the most powerful. But heaven did not fall when we have the dullest president presiding over the affairs of our dear country, under whose watch billions of dollars was frittered away go to the foreign country, or in a suckaway and burial grounds in someone’s homes. But because buhari will defend Nigeria and the Nigerians with his life, you are free to call him any names,looser.

  • 0tile

    Alhaji Okoroawusa, you are alone in your shock. There is nothing wonderful about Buhari being dead or alive, we don’t care anymore. The bottom line is either Buhari is really sick and unable to do his duties or he is healthy faking sickness to dodge his duties which might be above his mental and physical capacity, period.

    Rochas Okorocha needs help from good Nigerians

    I am not a medical doctor but i have a good sense. I observe people a lot. In my own opinion,
    Rochas Okorocha may need to be hospitalized and put on life support. I know what i’m talking
    about. Rochas Okorocha is very ill and in fact maybe more sick than even Muhahamdu Buhari.

    In this report Rochas Okorocha was CONFABULATING. He was telling lies actually on the visit.
    Okorocha said Minister of Transport Rotimi Amaechi was his witness, but Amaechi wasn’t there.
    I used to have a friend in school who told me that confabulation is a major psychiatric symptom.
    If that is the case Rochas Okorocha needs hospitalization with life support and a bit of flogging.
    Flogging is cultural, actually, because Africans believe any mental problem can be flogged out.

        “Truly, the APC party and all their friends,
        moles, associates and agents need to be swept from power and
        buried alive in 2019. It is duty for us to do this and to pull our nation back
        from the brink. APC party is a misguided association of pernicious liars,
        confirmed Luciferians, practising satanists, accursed corpsocrats,
        blood-sucking ritualists, unrepentant beasts, godless coprophiliacs, gruesome
        undertakers and unconscionable necromancers who have a deep-seated and
        unbreakable covenant with the spirit of death.

        APC is not a political party
        but a satanic lodge of devil-worshipers and a cult of death. They bring
        nothing but death, decay and destruction. They thrive on death, they feast on
        death, they wait on death and they worship death. Everything they touch results
        in death. It is no wonder that they have cut out the heart of our nation and
        almost killed Nigeria. It is no surprise that their leader and our President
        has vanished into thin air for the last 70 days. It is no wonder that his
        office is evidently in the grave and that, for the better part of the last two
        years, he has been attending a prolonged and turbulent meeting in hell,
        struggling with the angel of death.”

    The holy ghosts, have rejected the evil-wish on president Muhammadu Buhari, by the Ekiti State, disgraced and corruption indicted governor Ayodele Fayose, as president Muyhammadu Buhari, is recovering fast with the best adequate medical treatment supplemented with the touch of the precious holy ghost from Jehovah God Almighty. Jehovah God Almighty, would not abandoned his chosen one with much more certain destined goals yet to be accomplished by president Muhammadu Buhari, to set Nigeria, on the right path toward peace,progress and prosperity for the people of Nigeria.
    By Jehovah God,s grace those arch-enemies of president Muhammadu Buhari, who peddle false rumour that president Muhammadu Buhari, was a live-support machine or premature-death, shall have those evil wishes rebound upon them all.Even, president Muhammadu Buhari, might be the one to sympathize with their wives and children and their husbands and relatives and issue condolences after their untimely demise.No evil shall go unpunished as evil-doers, will meet their ruin at the end.

    • emmanuel

      May Buhari never come back to lead Nigeria. If that will make him pack up, better for Nigeria. He is not the first globally to have been prayed out of governance. So delude your self in wishful thinking.
      God has rejected Buhari, because he did not intend Nigeria to turn-around, but had only Jihadist and vendetta agenda.
      He is serving the punishment of Nebucadnezzer. He is spending his life in the bush away from his throne.

  • THE LAW

    How long shall we continue to deceive one another as a nation?
    Has Buhari become the President of the APC chieftains only?
    Is he not supposed to be the president of the entire Nigeria?
    How is it that APC leaders are the only one with “access” to him and supposedly can tell us when he would return to work?
    I thought he is is the President of Nigeria, while Osinbanjo is only acting on his behalf?
    Don’t Nigerians deserve to know the full state of this man’s health?
    Folks, lack of transparency as delineated by this administration is the height of corruption and impunity.
    When leaders fail to be accountable to the led, they oppress them, there is no in-between.
    I, as reasonable human being wish the president well, wherever is he, and whatever is going on with him. But, the failure of this administration to come clean on the president’s state of health speaks to the height of opacity that shrouds this administration. The so called fight against corruption has evidently turn to a charade when the office of the President itself operates in secrecy. Can you imagine that the president’s SA on media, the supposed spokes person cannot even give a clear account of the President’s well being! Alas, what a nation.
    If the President and his office would not be accountable to the electorate of more than 180 million people, how do you expect a Ministry of Works and Housing contractor for an example to be accountable in a public project aimed at serving a community of 180,000 people. There goes your fight against corruption!!
    Time and the refrain for further comments would limit to comment further. But, may we wake up as a nation, and demand accountability and transparency from our leaders. Let all know that all Power belongs to God, he can truncate any administration at any time, and at his will. He can make a man “figure head” president, and he can make that man never to exercise in the power of the presidency. Our history as nation is fresh in this area.
    Accountability, transparency, and probity from the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria are demanded, and they are requisite for reasonable governance, let alone “fighting corruption”

It was only wise for them to go and see, what took them there and brought them back is not what brought Nigeria on her knees, the same way a company will pay off few staffs only to bring in even more people. In economics we call it “trade-offs” you can lose some when you put your eyes on the much that might come your way later. The polity is heated; their trip showing PMB as healthy doused some tension and while the temperature is yet to be normal, it reduced from 49 degrees to 39 degrees. Any medical doctor get so worried at such temperatures and as it reduces he is happy that his regimens are surely working. Please let peace reign in Nigeria, we can avoid the chaos you guys are so fixated upon.

    What does it take the president to address his people since he is only taking vitamin for appetite. The money used to travel and set that table would have been saved. What is wrong with our leaders

    • No Komment

      APC is not a political party
      but a satanic lodge of devil-worshipers and a cult of death. They bring
      nothing but death, decay and destruction. They thrive on death, they feast on
      death, they wait on death and they worship death. Everything they touch results
      in death. It is no wonder that they have cut out the heart of our nation and
      almost killed Nigeria. It is no surprise that their leader and our President
      has vanished into thin air for the last 70 days. It is no wonder that his
      office is evidently in the grave and that, for the better part of the last two
      years, he has been attending a prolonged and turbulent meeting in hell,
      struggling with the angel of death.”

        Muhamadu Buhari is sick to death and incapacitated after he traveled out on 7th of May
        following initial treatment by blood transfusion. He is not in a physical or mental shape to
        run his personal affairs, to speak more of running the affairs of a village. He does not
        have requisite knowledge – even in good health – to perform the role of a president.

        Anything to the contrary is hogwash. No medical doctor can intern a fully fit and
        conscious patient or sequester such healthy and functional person from duty.
        Muhamadu Buhari is not adjudged by medical experts as able to perform.

    Then if this man is so strong as the Imo Moron is saying, then he should be impeached for abdicating his duties. That means the President just ran away to enjoy in London and left the responsibility given to him by Nigerians to manage the country.

    Rochas Okorocha needs help from good Nigerians

    I am not a medical doctor but i have a good sense. I observe people a lot. In my own opinion,
    Rochas Okorocha may need to be hospitalized and put on life support. I know what i’m talking
    about. Rochas Okorocha is very ill and in fact maybe more sick than even Muhahamdu Buhari.

    In this report Rochas Okorocha was CONFABULATING. He was telling lies actually on the visit.
    Okorocha said Minister of Transport Rotimi Amaechi was his witness, but Amaechi wasn’t there.
    I used to have a friend in school who told me that confabulation is a major psychiatric symptom.
    If that is the case Rochas Okorocha needs hospitalization with life support and a bit of flogging.
    Flogging is cultural, actually, because Africans believe any mental problem can be flogged out.

    This nation ,the way it is been operated, can never make any meaningful progress. Those celebrating that buhari,a man that was elected with unrivalled hope for a change, is able to talk,smile, and be humorous and about to return after about 80 days on medical exile, should pause for a while and reflect on the following.
    1 .is buharis sickness a happenstance,was the fact that buhari is terminally sick not there since 2012.
    2.Are those who used sick buhari to scam the nation unawares that this scenery is bound to occur when buhari come under the burden of Nigeria presidency.
    3.Are we justified as a serious nation and a people desirous of making progress to field and vote for a man in the strength, character, conditions,age and mindset of buhari as the president of Nigeria at this time in history.
    4. Could Nigeria and APC leaders truly swear that buhari is the best man for the job our of about 180m Nigerians.
    It is very disheartening seeing Nigeria fumble and tumble the way that this nation is moving, for the past 6 months, governance in Nigeria have taken the back seat while Nigerians are celebrating that buhari can still talk,take vitamins, welcome some selected guests and talk on phone. What a nation, what a people, meanwhile some ministers designate who were appointed and screened since 3 months ago could not be sworn in by the president to take up governance in their assigned ministries until the NASS began to complain and pass resolutions about them.
    Meanwhile Nigerians are facing the worst conditions of life in the history of our nation.
    May God do away with all these people who are taking Nigeria for granted.

  • Rommel

    Part of the numerous problems with Nigeria is that many people have no idea what governance is and thus have strange understanding of how government functions because of the aberration they have been experiencing since the days of military interventions. PMB is a man with full knowledge of administrative procedure and protocols, he had demonstrated this when he came back from his previous medical leave on a Friday and avoided any official duty while the acting president was still on sit, he informed the press that VP Osinbajo would still be presiding until he writes formally to national assembly to assume duty.

    This important point was lost on the Nigerian populace made up of largely ignorant people who have no idea that they are ignorant, that a president could be in the country yet had no powers was a defining moment in our democracy and I gave PMB the greatest of respect and marks for that.He made it clear then that rules must be followed, we have been looking for just 3% of Nigerians with sufficient understanding of how a modern democracy works, the basic requirement needed to move the any nation forward, unfortunately,what we have found so far is not encouraging as only about 0.003% out of the so called 170 million human beings can be said to fall in this category,how can such a nation develop?

    People are today asking why the president cannot address the nation, much as I would have preferred a different method to what the APC is doing now but in a nation where mental laziness prevails,it is important to let people know that Mr President cannot address the nation because even though he is the elected president, right now, there is a president on sit and PMB cannot undermine that institution,the only difference is that he is free to come back anytime to resume his duty because he has the mandate.We wish him well and hope he comes back soon to increase the momentum on the fight against corruption which is now prostrate having been bashed left and right by the judiciary as well as national assembly leadership.

    A situation where other arms of government are working against the interest of the executive arm cannot be acceptable, and since corruption has reconstituted itself and emerged as political force hoping to protect themselves under the toga of opposition party, then we have to face them squarely as enemies of progress.

    • emmanuel

      If Buhari understood what governance is, he would not have engaged in running government in six months alone. That qualified him for a long jail term if Nigeria was a nation.
      Then followed by appointing only cronies, religious kits and ethnics and tribes men only to all functional states offices.
      I beg waka pass make we hear word.
      If he understood governance well and insisted Yar Adua must resign when he was ill years ago, then he should have resigned by now.

      • Olusola

        There was nothing in our constitution as to how early a new President has to fill cabinet positions. Free yourself from this mental slavery. The man you replied is light years ahead of you in the knowledge of how a democracy works. The presidency is not a man, it is an institution, bigger than the man. You may even all be shocked that the man if medical experts told him he cannot be good enough health wise to run Nigeria, I am 100% sure PMB will resign. Remember he was one of those who fought for Dr Jonathan to take over as Ag. President, he argues you cannot have vacuum in governance.

    • Mahmat

      I could not agree more with you on how few the number of sane Nigerians are after reading the replies to your post by emmanuel, George & Co. You can see the level of ignorance, frustration and pain expressed in their comments which are classical symptoms of insanity.

  • Border_Marksman

    I would like to thank Gov Rocas for this revelation. We should all be rejoicing that our Baba Buhari is alive and well. I mean, look at how healthy he looks! He is after all, the father of our nation because before him we were bastards without a father and he came to save us from shame. Osinbade is doing an ok job in his acting capacity but the “uncommon” stellar performance of government will return once Baba comes back home. Let us continue to wish him well…

    Otile is now confused. He declared the man dead and now the governor is saying he saw him, met him and in a good spirit and condition ? No way hose, that can’t be true but, otile will not attack him because he is not from the North or S/west and muslim. Well, one can never tell so, I’ll keep reading the comments.

    Governor Okorocho your word is super and timely to diffuse our mind confusions created by mongers. Your visit has really confirmed high degree of rumor and the high amount of rumor manufacturer even in the political circle of Nigeria nation.

    Do these Nigerian politicians ever stop to consider how they are perceived by the outside world. A country ravaged by disease and poverty has 6 governors spending scarce resources to visit their president who we are told is due home any minute and are proud to announce it.
    Untold amount is already being spent on the president’s health and these governors think nothing of jetting off to U.K. at the expense of their individual states where their constituents are dying from treatable diseases and salaries are unpaid.
    There is certainly something wrong with the psyche of black people.
    And by the way, Okorocha I think you were ‘amazed’ not shocked.

    • 0tile

      He was in no shock, he was mesmerized by the razzmatazz. Obviously Alhaji Sariki Okoroawusa has not seen his Awusa brethren pull that kind of Abracadabra before, the more he looked the less he saw. Probably he is having nightmares at that macabre scene, Corrupt deceivers.

      • Ugochukwu

        He was shocked because he only found out that he was equally been deceived. It is now obvious to him that the man is unfit to preside.

    • Yego V

      I share your pain and frustration.

  • Netanyahu

    I am enjoying the pains and frustration the propagandist party called eefeecee is going through just to prove a needless point, that their man Friday is still alive and stable. That is the wage for telling lies on virtually anything and everything, even on saying good morning. The party accommodates the worst creatures from this contraption called Nigeria. They will continue to explain and explain until they have no other lies to tell. If Nigerians will believe the mentally retarded moron called IMO state governor that is their cup of tea. A lunatic who abandoned all the existing general hospitals in his state to start new one in each of the 27 LGAs and as we speak, not one will be completed in his 8 wasteful years. He only used the hospital contracts to fleece the state.

      • Ugochukwu

        People like you are very gullible. When the evidence is right before your eyes still you cannot see. The president is sick, even if he is getting better he does not need to do tedious or any laborious task. He need to resign, he is totally unfit to preside over the affairs of Nigeria now.

  • Yego V

    It is indeed very sad and embarrassing. I cannot believe six governors are wicked enough to leave their suffering citizenries and go on jolly flight to the UK to have dinner with a another wicked president who abandoned the people who voted him, would not care to tell them what is wrong with him and neither care to address them.. This is very very wicked. I cannot imagine our leaders being this callous. If our leaders can go this far, I wonder why we prosecute the likes of Evans.

    • Olusola

      Nor can I imagine your being this callous! You say all these on an ailing President? Would you have said the same if he comes from your village? You are a wicked soul!
