Buhari calls another governor

President Muhammadu Buhari making a call

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday made a telephone call from London to Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi.

A government house statement issued in Lokoja said that Mr. Buhari, who made the call in the evening, interacted with the governor for a couple of minutes.

The director general on media and strategy to the governor, Kingsley Fanwo, who signed the statement, said Mr. Bello received the call in Lagos on his way back from Abeokuta, where he attended the inauguration of Obasanjo Library.

“The President thanked the governor for his support and his leadership qualities.

“He told the governor that he was observing rest and will return very soon to continue his assignment of providing purposeful leadership to the nation,” Mr. Fanwo said.

He said Mr. Bello received the call in the presence of the Speaker of the state house of assembly, Ahmed Imam, some members of the house, commissioners and top government functionaries.(NAN)

    Until Imam Olodo calls Fayose and Fayose confirms that he spoke with the spirit, I and many right thinking Nigerians will never believe these ubiquitous make up stories of calls here and there. Enough of these mirage calls. What most Nigerians want is for the ultimate call – For God to call Imam Olodo.

  • TalkWella

    What I do not understand in all these various calls like Buhari calls Trump, calls Obasanjo, calls this Governor and that Governor is, Why is he not calling “Nigerians” the people who voted him into power?

    They cant be asking us to pray for Buhari while he is busy calling those that are important to him.

    Pls when next they need prayers they contact those people who he always calls to pray for him.

      How are you all? I am just waking up. Very hot. No light for my fan to work. Government is not working.
      The Raji Fashola boy they put there is like dunce. They need to change him. I am reading this thing
      about President Buhari doing BUSINESS CENTRE in London. I now ask my neighbour if it is okay for
      President of Nigeria to be doing business centre. All the business centre around me here in Warri are
      closing down. No electricity for them to do photocopy.

      My neighbour now told me it is not okay. He told me that our Constitution
      says no president must do business centre. He showed me one place inside
      the Constitution and explain it to me that a president can only plant
      cassava, palm tree, yam and so on, but not be doing business centre of
      phone call and photocopy.

      Since that is the case what you have to do now is do powerful letter to Senate that Buhari is violating the
      Constitution of Nigeria in London by doing photocopy and phone call per minute business centre. The Senate
      will now invite him to come and explain himself. The other tribal mark man Buhari phone too, who says he is 80
      years old in Otta, must also be summoned to explain if he too cannot read and write, like Buhari since this law
      is inside the Constitution of Nigeria.

    So secretary to the government, commissioners and members of the house of assembly all followed to governor to Abeokuta to commission Obasanjo’s library. You wonder how much was spent on that jamboree.

    • ANONYMOUS because of Police

      @disqus_7zyafeEEyQ:disqus : So, all the nonsense we saw between
      May 29, 2015 and January 19, 2017 is what President Buhari calls ‘purpose
      leadership’? If that is this nomad sense of ‘purpose leadership’ all mosques
      and prayer warriors must start praying hard that Muhamadu Buhari must not back.
      It is time to tell our mind in public. We made a big mistake to vote for Buhari
      We are regretting it. If God can take us out of our error in a hurry,
      we will be very grateful

  • George
