President Muhammdu Buhari, on Saturday, said falling ill has taught him “to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.’
Buhari said this as he received the presidential media team, led by Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in the United Kingdom.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president said his obedience to his doctors helped in improving his health.
Buhari also “lauded Nigerian television stations and the media generally,” for helping him keep tabs on happenings in the country.
The president, while also thanking well-wishers from within Nigeria and across Africa, 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.”
In company of the Lai Mohammed-led team were 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.
The WHISTLER recalls that President Buhari left Nigeria since May 7 for medical consultation in London and is believed to be gearing up to return to the country anytime soon.
