President BuharI: I’m Okay, Just Obeying Doctor’s Orders
President Muhammadu Buhari said yesterday that all that he is waiting for to return to Nigeria is the green light from his doctors in London.
Buhari, who spoke 96 days after he commenced the latest round of his medical vacation abroad, yesterday, was quoted as saying:
“I have learnt to obey my doctors’ orders rather than being the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctors are absolutely in charge.”
He had left Nigeria for the United Kingdom (UK) for medical treatment on May 7.
The president spoke while receiving the presidential media team and the senior special assistant on Diaspora matters, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, at Abuja House, London, yesterday.
Buhari said he can’t wait to return home, according to Adesina in an electronic statement.
He said: “When the team expressed delight at the much improved health of the President, he retorted, ‘I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
On how he felt hearing different stories about his health, an amused President Buhari said he followed events at home closely, lauding Nigerian television stations and the media generally for keeping him informed.
President Buhari sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.
