Mrs. Aisha Buhari, Nigeria’s First Lady, is back from London this morning after visiting her sick husband, President Muhammadu Buhari, who is hospitalized in London.
According to a statement by Suleiman Haruna, her spokesperson, Mrs. Buhari, on arrival, conveyed the appreciation of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians over their constant prayers and said he would soon return to the country.
Mrs. Buhari called on Nigerians to continue to be strong in the face of challenges and to support the Federal Government in implementing the agenda for which they were elected.
“Mr. President thanked the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for his loyalty and called on Nigerians to continue to support the acting President in his effort to actualize the mandate of the All Progressives Congress,” she said.
Mrs. Buhari had on May 30 traveled to the UK to spend some time with the President.
Before her departure, she thanked Nigerians for their support and prayers for Mr. Buhari’s quick recovery.
The president left Nigeria for London on May 7, for another round of treatment following his last trip in February.
He had earlier returned to Nigeria on March 10 after spending 51 days in the British capital during which he attended to his health.
Upon his return, the president said he “couldn’t recall being so sick since he was a young man, including in the military with its ups and downs.”
He also said he could not recall ever having blood transfusion before.
No one knows exactly what is wrong with the president but his long absence in the political arena and the secrecy surrounding what is actually wrong with him has left many saying it is a terminal disease and that he may not return, when on the other hand some of his supporters are saying he was poisoned.
