I’m grateful to Nigerians, says President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari receives Senate President, Bukola Saraki; Speaker, House of Representatives and Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan in London

President Muhammadu Buhari has thanked all Nigerians, “Christians and Muslims alike”, for their constant prayers and kind wishes for his health.

The President made this known on his Twitter handle, @MBuhari, on Wednesday night, shortly after the Senate President Bukola Saraki; Speaker, House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara and the Senate leader Ahmed Lawan visited him in London.

He said: “Pleased to receive Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara and Senate Leader Ahmed Lawan, tonight.

“I thanked them for visiting. I’m also grateful to Nigerians, Christians and Muslims alike, for their prayers and kind wishes for my health.’’

Senate President Bukola Saraki, who led a team of National Assembly leaders to visit the President, said at the end of the visit: “there is no cause for alarm”.

Mr. Saraki’s statement was meant to douse apprehensions and speculations in Nigeria about President Buhari’s health.

“The president I saw today is healthy, witty and himself…he is doing well, was cheerful and in good spirits,” the Senate President said. (NAN)

    Reading this article reminds me of statement credited to this administration that we El-Zakawi will not be released is because of his own safety – hence, the man was not safe before this administration detained him even against several courts pronouncements.

    They are telling us that Buhari is well and healthy but prefers to remain in London, abandoning his mandates. How our leaders belittle us in international scene is amazing.

  • Take all the time you need to be well rested baba, your health is this nation’s wealth.

    It is sheer naivety for anyone to conclude that Saraki’s involvement in this drama would ‘douse’ tension as PT has put it. If anything, his involvement and trip to London will further heighten skepticism and in many cases make many Nigerians infer that Buhari has indeed passed on. Saraki has been an unrepentant liar for a very long time. He has lied about his finances, property and even on oath and some resulted in endless litigation. He therefore has no integrity except of course in the camp of Lucifer and his evil agents/spirits of deception, many of whom will even find Saraki’s filth repugnant.

    From politicians to presidents and now to Twitter. Nigerians want VIDEO evidence. Even if a 2 second SPEECH or LIVE APPEARANCE with his body in motion (especially his left hand, leg and jaw). That is all! That’s all Nigerians want to see, and not Twitter or Trump or Mr Crook (Saraki)

    …even Mohammadu Buhari’s cap is dangling on his head. He has emaciated drastically. All his bones are protruding from his clothes. Is he having HIV AIDS?

  • LionHeart

    There is no need to doubt Buhari’s current health condition. Since Saraki visited him in London, Nigerians should ask Saraki and let him Saraki come out to the public to tell us about the president’s health.
