Buhari Speaks From London, Says 'I've Learnt To Obey Orders'

Lauretta Onochie were among those who visited him.

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.

Nigeria's president says he feels healthy enough to return home from medical leave in Britain, and is awaiting his doctor's permission.

The visit came on the heels of the protest by the OurMumuDonDo movement asking the President to return home or resign, which rocked Abuja, the federal capital, for most of last week.

Buhari left for the British capital on May 7 on what is his latest medical trip.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday, August 12, 2017 received members of his media team at Abuja House, London.

Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Lai Mohammed and Buhari's Senior Special Assistant (Foreign Affairs and Diaspora) Abike Dabiri-Erewa were also part of the president's guests. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed", he is quoted as saying.

When told that prayers were going on fervently for him, not only in Nigeria, but all over Africa, and round the world, a delighted President said: "What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent".

Buhari could be seen in photos receiving a greeting card from the team, which reads "Get well soon". It gave us a lot of latitudes.

Is there a cabal preventing him from returning or holding Nigeria hostage as it was during the Yar'adua administration?

The government has dismissed the gathering as ill-motivated, insisting that Buhari has violated no law since he handed over power to vice president Yemi Osinbajo.A counter pro-Buhari rally was also staged during the week, with its organizers alleging that the sit-out was a plot to derail the ailing president's anti-corruption agenda.
