Buhari’s Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) Femi Adesina, in a statement released on Sunday, described Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha‘s experience at the meeting.

Read the statement posted on Facebook below:

In a telephone conversation following the meeting of All Progressives Congress (APC) governors and leaders with President Muhammadu Buhari in London Sunday, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, said the President was very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.

The governor said the party delegation spent more than an hour with President Buhari over lunch, and it was very clear from the discussions that he followed developments at home very closely.

He said the President was delighted to receive the delegation and asked each governor about affairs in his state. He also asked the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, about the state of the railways.

When asked to react to all the negative things being said about him, the President just laughed, describing such negative reports as lies. Governor Okorocha said President Buhari was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies. He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.

According to the governor, Nigerians don’t have to worry at all, adding that President Buhari will be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light.

“By our visit to London today, the merchants of lies have been put out of business and Nigerians will not buy the garbage they have been selling. All those who look up to fake news can find better use for their time,” Governor Okorocha noted.

Governors Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna; Yahaya Bello of Kogi; and APC National Chairman, John Oyegun, were also in the delegation.

    He waited until you visited him to send his best wishes to the rest of Nigerians after he wished ONLY Hausa speaking Muslims well?
    Bia “Roaches” si ebea puo osiso!
    The President doesn’t know how to Skype? You fat bellies have futher frittered away our monies to jamboree visit to Mr ailing president! By now during President Yaradua, General Buhari had called for his resignation. Continu God is not asleep.
    Tell Mr. President to keep his wishes. He doesn’t care either!

    I think those people in the presidential villa do not get it. We want a VISUAL with AUDIO. Not photos or audio only.

    The man clearly looks better than when he left Nigeria. I am glad he is staying until he fully recovers. Shame on those wishing him ill. How would any of you like to be replaced permanently at work merely because you fell ill? Are we not human? Fayose might be the next one down and it has nothing to do with age because we all remember the late President Yar’adua was younger than Fayose.
