Africa's underdevelopment caused by terrorism – Buhari
Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari says he feels healthy enough to return home and is only awaiting permission from his doctor.
Buhari left for the British capital on May 7 on what is his latest medical trip.
The President's absence from the country has generated controversy and his comments come the same week that protesters took to the streets demanding that he resumes or resign. "Here, the doctors are absolutely in charge".
To convince Nigerians that he is strong, the president walked like a soldier in front of his media team who all laughed.
According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina in Abuja on Saturday, Buhari was speaking when his media team led by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, visited him at Abuja House, London, on Saturday.
"I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge", Mr Buhari said in a statement. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than being obeyed", lightening up the mood at the meeting. I thank all those who are praying.
Acknowledging the valued cooperation between Nigeria and Kenya in the fight against terrorism, Buhari commended the East African country for the recent successes recorded in tackling terrorism in the region. "May God reward them", the president.
In the team that visited Buhari were, besides Adesina and Mohammed, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu, Personal Assistant to the President on Digital/Online Media Lauretta Onochie, and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora Matters Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
President Buhari sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon, Adesina said.
The Conference of Patriotic Nigerians, a coalition of true democrats, will tomorrow hold a solidarity walk in support of the Buhari/Osinbajo led government at the Unity Fountain, Abuja.
The presidency also released photos of Buhari walking outdoors.
