President Muhammadu Buhari says there is tremendous improvement in his health, indeed, he wishes to return home, “but I’ve learnt to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.”

The President spoke while receiving the presidential media team, and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, at Abuja House, London, on Saturday. Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, led the visiting team, accompanied by Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity; Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, and Lauretta Onochie, Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media. Also there was Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters.

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.”

On how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, an amused President Buhari said he followed events at home closely, lauding 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, a delighted President 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.”

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

        While boko haram have just killed hundreds in Adamawa and burnt down a whole community, Hausa Fulani parents are now donating their almajiri children for suicide missions, police arresting 50 Hausa Fulani male prostitutes in kano for sodomy,Fulani herdsmen now turning into armed robbers and kidnappers, 6.5 million Fulani and Hausa brethren now dying of starvation in IDP camps because of self inflicted boko madness, desert sacking front line Hausa Fulani states,15 million bewitched almajiri imbeciles children out of schools.
        What a huge calamities to deal with while they are chasing shadows and going to far east to throw stones.
        What an immoral generation.

          Very enlightening to say the least. Take a couple of minutes to read and mentally digest the viewpoint/s.

          “Simeon Nigel • 4 hours ago

          Suddenly than ever before, the USA, France and UN were running a massive military bases in Cameroon and in Niger; the two most closest Nigeria”s neighbours. Sometimes, if one takes a closer observation or look at some of Abubakar Shekau, the notorious and satanic leader of the evil Boko Haram group’s videos in the YOUTUBE platform, one will clearly see that the types of military weapons being displays by Boko Haram does appear to be that of the USA and France types of standard battlefield weapons and vehicles. So, the UN offices are inside Borno solely to be serving or providing as a conduct logistic channels for supplying Boko Haram with all the relevant and necessary weapons for them to keep on putting up the tempos of their evil attacks and destructions against the Nigeria state in North-east region with the sole aims of weakening or killing the strong strengths of Nigeria’s national higher value Naira currency in the entire Africa sub-sharan region. Which this same Naira currency’s higher value that made the Late Ranold Regan, the former USA president in 1979 – 1984 to be mounting heavy political diplomacy pressures against the Nigerian state for the Naira curreny to be devalue or downgraded to a near “worthlessness” level for just in order that the USA to have a greater opportunity to acquire most of the majority of Nigerian natural resources under a very Cheap costs or practically purchasing them for “peanuts equivelent of ‘a kind of patry’ costs” level. As well as the possibility of taking full control of the entire Nigerian oil and natural resources productions almost for free in the future some day. As for the France, their secret suporting Boko Haram is for ensuring that the entire North-East region and some parts of Lake Chad region should be under its whole control, which is why Boko Haram up till today they keep on striving and posing so difficult to finish them-off by the Nigeria military and as also BHT today still being harbour right inside Cameroon, L/Chad and Niger soils now sharing borders with Nigeria. The UN office is a secret base offices for monitoring for the strenghts and weaknesses of the Nigerian Militray capabilities on behalf of Boko Haram evil sect, which they (i.e UN) also passing one vital informations supply to them by UN offices in Borno state capital and the same secret information are been pass on to Boko Haram for them to strategies better in their new many ways of evil approaches towards hitting so deeply hard against the Nigerian militray troops. Thereby weakening greatly majority of Nigerian troops’ morals and motivational human tracits in them for not to fights hard against Boko Haram sects. Even there are some Nigerian military personnel that were collecting secretelty some huge amounts of “back-hand goodies” from the USA and Frances military bases in exchange for vital and crucial information about Nigeria soldiers’s front-lines fighting BHT terror groups in order also to be boasting up the motivation of the evil Boko Haram sects into continuing their devilish attacks against majority ordinary Nigerian civilians and also against the entire nigeria state itself on year in year out basis till today”

      @amudamak:disqus

      “Then there is what critics describe as the “self-inflicted” wounds —
      the currency policies and associated import controls set up to conserve hard
      currency by prioritising strategic imports when Mr Buhari took power 12 months
      ago. These have starved existing businesses of inputs, leading to a collapse in
      supplies of everything from medicines to spare parts, while incidents of price
      gouging have risen. The policies are also blamed for encouraging capital flight
      while forestalling fresh investment. Inflows dropped by nearly 75 per cent to
      $711m in the first four months of 2016. The impact has been chilling. Nigeria’s
      economy, which grew annually at an average rate of 7 per cent in the decade to
      2014, contracted by 0.36 per cent in the first quarter. According to most forecasts
      it is heading into recession. The import controls and restrictions on foreign exchange
      have hit the manufacturing sector hard, eroding the credibility of the Buhari
      administration’s ambition to diversify the economy.”

      • Major Steiner

        Nonsense, why publish a more than a year old opinion of the Financial Times and not the latest assessement of the IMF which is certainly available to you? the IMF in its latest assessment of the Nigerian economy in just 2 weeks ago had praised the central bank for successfully narrowing the gap between the naira rates at the official and parallel markets and thereby increasing forex inflow and reserves as well as lowering inflation.

        • Recap Naija

          @momody:disqus

          My brother, please read the 2017 IMF report you flagged again; but this time
          more slowly, and you would see that it is in fact a worse indictment of the shambolic,
          mentally bereft and childish Buhari government. Newspaper editors in Nigeria did just that
          and cast their headline around the central verdict of the I.M.F that there’s no COHERENCE
          in Buhari’s government.

          The word ‘incoherence’ in any good dictionary
          will convey the mess of the Buhari regime today because INCOHERENCE means
          NOT arranging or doing a task in any logical sequence for any orderly result. In
          other words INCOHERENCE and the word GOVERNMENT will be an oxymoron
          in the same sentence, since governance means the exact opposite of incoherence.

          Thus suggesting that there’s really no government in Nigeria today, except
          idolatry of pretence to governance by photographs of a sickly, absent, if not
          absent-minded and gaunt President Buhari, regularly rushed by media aides for
          publication to a naïve populace as a totem of government rather than as proof
          of governance.

        • abodes_124

          Yes too little too late. Baba dug in his heels and said the Naira must not be ‘devalued’. it was only during one of his sickness absences that Osinbajo managed to sneak in ‘flexible’ exchange rates resulting in the reduction in the gap and some measure of stability you now see..

      @amudamak:disqus;

      There are now 28 million un-employed youths inside Nigeria today – a staggering figure equal to
      the entire population of Ghana; a neighbouring West African country, according to a latest official
      bulletin issued by the federal Nigerian Bureau of Statistics. The new jobless figure in Nigeria today
      is over half the whole population of Nigeria at independence on October 1st, 1960 and equal to all
      the living human beings in Ghana.

Tell me just 1 person that was fired by GEJ for stealing. Babachir is still under investigation but under GEJ Dasuki stole US$2Billion and sent our soldiers to fight insurgents with catapults,Diezibaby stolen money capable of building 5 standard refineries and never get caught until PMB came me.In your inner conscience thinking deeply if that is they way to run a country.You hate the Northerners for ruling for long and you got opportunity to rule and under 6 years you rendered Nigeria useless.Please can you point to just 2 project that your brother GEJ executed in the Niger Delta to improve their lots as your son. Just 2 life changing projects.Your problem is your political leaders just like my igbo problem is my political leaders and not an individual.Have a great day

            The only person confirmed to have stolen money to date is Abacha. Obasanjo carried on and grew the economy despite meeting a truly empty treasury

You Yorubas can only remember 6 years of Jonathan, but nothing About Abacha, IBB, Abusalalmi, Obj, Yar’Adua or bungling Imam Buhari. Imam Buhari stole $2.8 of our PTF Fund. Are calling on him to refund the money? Odabo.

            i pity you but i have to take the advise of great mind on this forum and ignore your rants. Secondly there is nothing wrong in been a Yoruba man because they are far more above any offspring of Niger Delta .You hate every tribe but love yours and finally,i am an igbo man from Omabala where the name Anambra was derive from, Oyi Local Government.Please were are you from.

          • 0tile

            You have finally shown that you are a Yoruba man. I never said there is anything wrong in being Yoruba. The desperate way you are trying to prove you are Igbo gives you away. Everybody knows that Anambra is derived from Anambra River which in turn is derived from Anams. Have you heard of Anams before? You are the only person who knows that Anambra derives from an imaginary place called ‘Omabala’. I pity you.

    A people is as good as the choices they make,for inexplicably reasons, 15 million Nigerians decided to vote a half alive sadistic, clueless, malicious, vindictive ,hate overwhelmed old grand pa to rule over their nation ,this was despite the fact that the man was clueless, unlettered, weak, tired,demented, expired .
    Only 6 months down the line, the old man destroyed the nation, cast it into recession, sowed discord,enmity, hatred,violence, hunger,pain,sorrow, anguish and death into Nigeria and ran into exile .
    Even God is angry with this man for the evil he has done to his nation and people and have decided to keep him on a reserve bench with pains in a far country from where he is now watching the proceedings in his government from the television and hear say.
    Let all men and women learn from buharis experience, let them know that evil has a reward.
    May God never allow Nigeria to ever experience another thing like buhari era again in Nigeria, may God give due recompense to all men and women who brought this evil calamity upon Nigeria because of envy,jealousy and tribal hatred.
    May God forgive Nigeria for not keeping adequate vigilance in allowing this evil change disaster to come and destroy our dear nation,may God intervene and give our dear nation quick deliverance so that peace, unity,love, progress, prosperity and positive development shall return to Nigeria.

    The Buhari I see in this picture is a shadow of the man well-loved by 15 million Nigerians.

    I want a fully recovered Buhari out of power, but very alive and well, than a demystified and ailing President.

    Dear Mr President and Handlers,
    Doctors do not give orders. As long as you are an adult judged to have mental capacity, doctors can only advise you laying out risks against benefits. It is then for you to decide. If you Mr President still have mental capacity the decision to stay in the UK or return to Nigeria is squarely yours , not your doctors’.

    What’s the problem with Buhari’s left arm ?

  • Mentus

    Cas- strapped NHS will not be in a hurry tell you to go home. It actually depends on money from health tourists like you to plug the hole in NHS spending. I it is obvious that if you were an NHS patient you would have been discharged to the care of your doctor by now.
    I am sure that Nigeria gas qualified doctors who can keep an eye on you over here except that Nigerian politicians are always afraid of their own shadows. So Mr President if you feel well enough, do not wait on doctors ‘orders’. The Doctor is not God and you should rather obey God’s moral ‘orders’ not British doctor’s order.

    Ignore these ‘yes-sir’ people in the photo laughing like jackass around Buhari. We all know at least someone who would laugh like jackass even if their boss broke wind in their presence.

    FEMI ADESINA
    Special Adviser to the President,
    Media and Publicity
    August 12, 2017.

    Femi Adesina is undermining the office of the Acting President(AP). This statement should be issued by the AP’s office. And until Buhari returns to Nigeria and resume work, all his staff in Nigeria should be seconded to the AP’s office to avoid giving Nigerians the impression that there are two presidents running Nigeria. Or that Buhari is preventing the AG from carrying out his duties fully.

    And indeed, because of the behaviours of the likes of Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu, and their obvious attempt to undermine the AP, many a Nigerian, are falsely arguing that Buhari is interfering with the running of the government –Something, I personally doubt.

    Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu must stop the nonsense and follow protocol or resign or get sacked by the AP’s office. Indeed, I would call on the AP’s office to sack these men. If Buhari still wants them when he returns, he could rehire them.
