Ailing President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday met with some All Progressives Congress (APC) governors in London were he is receiving medical attention.
In a telephone conversation, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, who was at the meeting, said the president was very cheerful and has not lost any 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.
According to Okorocha, when asked to react to all the negative things being said about him, Buhari just laughed, describing such negative reports as lies.
Okorocha said 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,” Okorocha noted.
Governors Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna; Yahaya Bello of Kogi; and APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, were also in the delegation.
