Six governors are set to travel to London to visit Nigeria’s ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday.

This was disclosed by three presidential spokespersons, Femi Adesina, Garba Shehu and Laolu Akande, at a media briefing in Abuja.

The governors are to be led by Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara and include governors of Ebonyi, Kano, Benue, Akwa Ibom, and Oyo.

The visit comes a few days after some APC leaders and governors visited the president on Sunday.

Mr. Buhari had on that July 23 met with the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and some governors elected on the party’s platform.

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

Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, later quoted Governor Okorocha as describing Mr. Buhari as cheerful and humorous during the meeting held at Nigeria House in London.

Mr. Adesina also quoted the Imo governor 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.”

Mr. Buhari, whose real medical condition is unknown, has been in London for over 70 days for medical treatment.

His deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, recently visited him in the British capital, reporting back to Nigerians that the nation’s number one man was recuperating fast and would return soon.

    is there any need for this jamboree.

    • Spyman29

      Yes, there is need for it. If only it will make people like you not to listen to the lying Fayose and FFK

      • Taylor

        Common keep quiet!

      • Spoken word

        Fayose and FFK no be person.

  • bashwaziri

    The PDP Governors should be checked thoroughly coz they have been wishing the President death

  • Agba

    Nothing can come out of this JAMBOREE without video of Buhari shaking them one by one.

    • blueeyedkitten

      even if they bring buhari live before your eyes, you’d still say its his doppelganger.

      una head need reeeeaaaallllll restructuring.

    I think the PDP governors should decline this offensive invitation to give credibility to the dirty politics unfolding between APC and the cabal that has held this country in its jugular. The PDP governors must seek the permission of the party NEC and chairman. The PDP must direct its governors not to be part of this charade. The PDP should immediately issue statement condemning this charade and direct its members not to part of it. The President should show himself to all Nigerians otherwise he should rest in his sick bed. Presently there is a sitting president. Buhari has no role in governance today until he transmitts letter to the national Assembly that he is back. This trip certainly is in bad taste as part of APC usual lies, deception and evil propaganda.

    • Spyman29

      Unfortunately, your opinion doesn’t count in any way.

  • emmanuel

    Isuspect the two PDP Governors may beon blackmail list of the EFCC or the DSS. They may not say anything when they return. They may also have been scammed with getting Vice Presient slot for 2019 or some bogus promises.
    Anything short of live video will not stand.
    If the criminals in the APC were sincere, they would have taken Fayose or Wike who would tell the World the truth.
    Buhari is a ghost that does not talk or move on his seat. Lifeless President of a lifeless country

    • Emona

      Undiluted truth

  • Emona

    With all these categories of people in separate batches going to meet the president, I seriously suspect that this president is very sick, although he might not be bed ridden as many have suggested but i think it may be a terminal disease. I very much suspect it’s something relating to cancer. Though I don’t like him, yet I don’t wish him death, I just want him to hand over power to Osinbanjo and go and take good care of his health so that the evils cabals benefitting from his absence would be dismantled.

      “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 unconscioble 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-worshippers 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.”

    Cheii, again. Another set of bastards going to see a brain dead president in diaspora. this is truly insane.

    • VivasRevo


      Honest people in Nigeria will welcome the imminent revolutionary coup since it’s morally correct
      to deploy deadly violence in a final battle against Nigeria’s corrupt politicians. We do not ask for
      any military tribunal or court hearing. Both are useless to society. We ask and insist that every
      rogue politician must be arrested, severely flogged, and shot twice in the skull on the spot.

      All members of the family of each corrupt politician; including wives and children, must also be laid
      to rest in perfect peace because they are not entitled to inherit stolen assets. Nigeria’s imminent
      revolutionary coup is warranted forthe physical elimination of Nigeria’s treasury thieves and their
      complicit families.

      Death is the wages of sins. Anyone as a lawyer, banker or accountant, who’d assisted these criminal
      politicians to steal or transfer money overseas, or to legalize thefts, or to conceal any stolen asset,
      must be arrested, stripped naked and severely flogged on the streets, and then, summarily shot
      or later executed for treason on the spot for the moral cleansing of Nigeria once and for all.

      • FreeNigeria

        Totally agreed.

  • miko

    But APC Okoroach says he’s coming back in 2 weeks why this mad rush of a visit

  • aboki

    The way and manner the Nigerian Youth behaved is becoming worrisome and raising more questions than answers.
    It’s unfortunate , unafrican and contrary to religious teaching.
    What pleasures does one drive in abusing and names calling of NATION LEADERSHIP for taking decision contrary to your own
    These GOVERNORS , MINSTERS and LEADERS of THOUGHT are either of grandfather, fathers or senior brothers status to most of YOUTHS.
    It’s also indicates your background and teaching some one gone through.
    2019 is by the corner, you can reject them through ballot papers with card reader verification as the case may be.
    Abuses and names calling would not intimidate anyone to secumm as you may not have the monopoly .
    The silence majority are watching you with keen interest.
    Read and know history to enable you pipe low .
    Nigeria we hail thee!

    • suleiman

      Aboki, the youths form the majority population in Nigeria and therefore are the vocal majority contrary to your view. The question you must answer is, “Do we really have leaders in Nigeria?” The so-called governors, ministers and leaders of thought are not leaders in the true sense of leadership. Leaders seek the good of those they lead, but can you say looters are leaders?

  • Frank Bassey

    Why was the said “trip” of John Oyegun and co not given same publicity? What is all this nonsense about. If PMB is scheduled to return in a matter of weeks, according to loquacious Gov. Okorocha, what is the point wasting public fund to see an ailing President who have been away from his people for over 70 days. What really are we celebrating?
