Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State has said the health condition of President Muhammadu Buhari is satisfactory.
Umahi, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor, who is one of the seven state governors who met Buhari in London on Wednesday, described the recovery of the president as a miracle, considering the report in the social media of his health condition.
He said, “We met a cheerful President whose level of recovery is a miracle. We know he will soon return home as soon as his doctors certify him to do so. What he’s treating is not mere malaria that we can say he will return today or tomorrow.
“However, we are happy and we thank God for what we saw. It is contrary to the pictures people are painting on the social media. The President we saw is recuperating well and we are happy for that.
“It is even better that, we as members of the opposition party, are among the entourage. Nigerians should continue to pray for the President.”
Other members of the Nigeria governors forum who met Buhari on Wednesday at Abuja House in London were the governors of Zamfara, Akwa Ibom, Oyo, Benue, Borno and Kano states.
Buhari had lunch with the six governors, and exchanged views with them on national issues.
His wife, Aisha Buhari was also at the lunch.
